The CD will feature guest appearances by Corey Beaulieu of TRIVUM and Michael Angelo Batio of NITRO fame. Shaun previously described the upcoming CD as "one well-rounded album; from shreddin solos and flying double bass to machine-gun riffage, this album really has it all, and is hands down the best album I have ever made; no bullshittin' here, people." DIRGE recently posted a new song entitled "Confession" on the group's MySpace page. DIRGE has played shows alongside such acts as GOD FORBID, NILE, DEATH ANGEL and PRONG. DIRGE also took part in the June 2008 Jägermeister Music Tour dates with HATEBREED, TYPE O NEGATIVE, and 3 INCHES OF BLOOD as well as the July 2008 Jägermeister Music Tour dates with DOPE and KITTIE.
