ORGY Drummer Joins SNAKE RIVER CONSPIRACY

ORGY drummer Bobby Hewitt has joined SNAKE RIVER CONSPIRACY. He is expected to remain a member of ORGY, who are believed to be working on the material for their third full-length effort, due sometime in 2003.

The following is an update from SNAKE RIVER CONSPIRACY mainman Jason Slater, as posted on the group's newly-relaunched official web site:

"We took a break and made some changes with the business and the band," Slater wrote. "Bobby Hewitt is now playing drums and Fab Fernandez is playing guitar (we may add a second guitar player at some point, but who knows). I wrote some songs with Troy Van Leeuwen and Eddie Nappi from ENEMY and hope to write with them some more. Wrote a song with Troy and Charlie Clouser, wrote one with Denny Porter, who co-wrote some stuff on the first record, and even got off my ass and wrote a couple by myself. Bobby, Fab, Tobey and I have been rehearsing/writing, so some new songs will come from that, as well as some shows in the near future. We have been shooting a video for one of the new songs as well as putting together a full-length DVD that will be for sale on [on our official web site].

As previously reported, SNAKE RIVER CONSPIRACY recently parted ways with Reprise Records following the disappointing sales performance of their full-length debut, "Sonic Jihad" (2000), and are currently seeking a new record deal. A three-song demo was recently recorded and is presently being shopped to interested labels with a view towards releasing the group's second album sometime in 2003.

The tracks featured on the demo are as follows:

01. Shut Up
02. Methlahem
03. Not Long For This World
