Due in late January, the effort will be distributed by Plastic Head.In other news, Paolo Pieri has issued the following update: "Lots of people were asking for new stuff, so you'll be glad to know that I finished the songwriting for a small release that is going to be recorded in February at Fear No One Studio by Emiliano Natali with the same lineup [as on the 'Mantra for the End of Times' EP. "This release [will] consist of a brand new song, 'Para lÒgon' (ancient Greek, meaning 'Against the Word') and a totally violated cover of 'Paint it Black' by THE ROLLING STONES. This stuff will not be released on a CD to the public though, and will be available only to labels or in streaming through MySpace."
