We are BENIGN. we are a culture of self righteous enablers and idiots. We cater to the weak, idolize the self absorbed, and build monuments to our superstitions. We are in it for the cheap thrills and the easy outs. We are users, addicted to preservatives and poisons, our third eyes shriveled and atrophied. We are all benign. We point fingers at others for our shortcomings. our egos have started every war. We no longer fight for the greater good or stand up for what is decent. We are dried up and stagnant-husks of our former selves. We are self serving, self centered individuals who have been cut off from the universal consciousness like a diseased limb, slowly twitching and bleeding out from our self inflicted wounds. We are all BENIGN.
Tracking completed new album "Redshift"! Time for Mix down and then the CD Release 4/20/2012 @ The Knitting Factory!
Benign is hitting stage with new material tonight!!! Facebook for info! https://www.facebook.com/benign.official
Work is progressing quickly on our new CD. Mega Mike has completed his Drums and Jason and Sean have the Guitars pretty much finished. Even without the vocals and bass, it's sounding fantastic on the rough copy thanks to William Neiman!
Your's Truly is working on Bass tracks, and will likely be done tomorrow or this weekend, assuming I recover quickly from pulling a grueling 2-day bass recording session (maybe bringing a bass on the road isn't such a bad idea after all...). I've finished several tracks, and still need to do some touch-up work.
Kyle is working on Vocals as well this week. We're waiting to hear the 4 songs he did on Tuesday's session.
We hope everyone is having a safe-ish and brutal Christmas!
Hey, while you were reading this, you could have been listening to our Christmas song... Just do it! The Governator will make you smile :)

A date has been set to hit the studio and start the recording of our new CD! December 3rd!!!! We can't wait to show you what we've been working on!
Practice last night was awesome. Even though our lead guitarist had to leave early due to a family member having emergency surgery, we were able to accomplish getting our drum recording setup dialed in :) Now we can do a much better job of recording live sound during practice! We'll be posting some pre-production teaser tracks for the upcoming album soon!
We are stoked to announce that we are almost finished writing our new album and will be hitting the studio this fall to record! This album has been a long time coming and will definitely be our best to date! Our songwriting has taken on a lot more attention to detail and intricacy, and with the lineup we have working on this music, we feel that we are at the top of our game! We are looking forward to sharing the new music with all of you and getting out to destroy some more stages very soon!
