It’s a new year and there hasn’t been a WIS update since releasing The Thing That Goes Bump in the Night last October. While I’ve been quiet, there are some things in the works. A few new songs have been done for The Monster Guys’ podcast (TheMonsterGuys.com) and the 5D Blog’s new YouTube show & podcast (5D-Blog.com). Those will be available for download at some point. However, right on the horizon is a brand new space exploration-themed EP, Exploration: Red Space.
I’ve been big on the idea of doing EPs as “name your own price” on Bandcamp as sort of a thank you to everyone who has supported WIS through the years. This will be no different. These six songs may have a slightly different feel than you’re used to from WIS as they’re definitely more sci-fi in nature than they are horror but I think you’ll all dig it.
There is no definite date scheduled for release. Basically, as soon as the album comes back mastered, it’ll get a few listens to make sure everything is right then it will be available. I’m hoping this will be early this coming week.
Preorder the digital download and get remixes of Broken Souls from Tommy Creep, Vector Sector, Ghastworks, Mad Maddox and Ghoulshow. Want a retro physical copy? Graveyard Calling has cassettes available. Only 50 made. All cassette purchases come with the full album digital download plus the remixes.
It’s official, on March 18 preorders for Beyond the City of the Dead will start. There will be a limited edition (only 50) cassette release through Graveyard Calling and digital release through the official WIS bandcamp page. The reviews so far have been great and I’m really excited to finally get this out for everyone to hear.
Why pre-order a digital download, you ask? Well, there are bonus tracks involved. Tommy Creep, Ghoulshow, Mad Maddox, Ghastworks and Vector Sector have all taken the song “Broken Souls” and remixed it in their own style. These came out awesome. Every cassette order will come with a digital download of the full album plus the remixes. All pre-ordered digital-only purchases will come with the bonus remixes.
If it’s a retro cassette you’re looking for, GraveyardCalling.co.uk is where you’ll find it. If it’s only digital you want, WerewolvesInSiberia.bandcamp.com is where you’ll find that (or the music tab at WerewolvesInSiberia.com).
Here are some reviews so far:
