FATES WARNING drummer Mark Zonder has finished laying down drums for the group's new album at Carriage House studios in Stamford, Connecticut. Tentatively titled "FWX", the forthcoming CD "is going to be a great album," says Zonder. "Very powerful and strong. Next they will be doing guitars, bass, keys and vocals. This should be what all of the FATES fans are waiting for." Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Left Here", "River Wide Ocean Deep", "Another Perfect Day", "Stranger (With A Familiar Face)" and "Wish". An October release through Metal Blade Records is expected.As previously reported, Zonder recently announced that he will no longer be touring with FATES WARNING and has implied that he may not record any more albums with the group beyond their upcoming CD. Zonder is currently working with Gary Wehrkamp (SHADOW GALLERY guitarist) and D.C. Cooper (SILENT FORCE, ex-ROYAL HUNT vocalist) in a new project called ALFA-DOG.
