Metal Blade Recording Artist SLOUGH FEG is proud to announce the arrival of new drummer, Addison Filipczyk. Filipczyk, 25, will have big shoes to fill following in the wake of Harry Cantwell’s departure, but after several months of rehearsal the group is confident that they are in capable hands and feet.
Bassist Adrian Maestas comments, “After trying out drummers for a few months we think we’ve found the right guy. Welcome aboard, Addison!“
Singer/Guitarist Mike Scalzi gave only a short list of the new Drummer’s vital statistics:
-Loyal Slough Feg fan since 2007
-Sharp wit / keen philosophical / linguistic intellect
-Corrective lenses necessary when drumming / viewing oversized metal chicks’ asses
-Huge heavy metal fan, with tastes ranging from early Maiden and Priest to Budgie and Beethoven
-Corporate spirit with liberal incentives towards Slough Feg’s prime directive
Guitarist Angelo Tringali couldn’t be reached for comment, but his answering machine informed us that he was out in search of “a different lime and whiskey cola.”
Addison will make his debut with Slough Feg on April 16th, 2015, at the Eagle S.F. in San Francisco. ONWARD!!!
“Digital Resistance” was recorded with Justin Weis (who produced the album with vocalist/guitarist Mike Scalzi) at Trakworx in South San Francisco from January-October 2013 and marks the band’s first new studio album since 2010′s “The Animal Spirits.” Order your copy at metalblade.com/sloughfeg. The album is available digitally, on CD, and on vinyl. The opaque purple vinyl with grey haze is still available in limited quantities at indiemerch.com/metalbladerecords.
“Timeless, thought-provoking and thoroughly entertaining, expect Digital Resistance to top more than a few year-end lists.” Metal Hammer UK
“With their 8th full-length LP, Digital Resistance, Mike and the rest of Slough Feg are at their best, recalling the likes of Thin Lizzy’s cocksure braggadocio, Cirith Ungol’s dark mysticism, and early Genesis’ artful textures.” SputnikMusic.com
“arguably the greatest heavy metal band of the last twenty years…proper metal” Zero Tolerance Magazine
