SPYLACOPA — the new studio project featuring John LaMacchia (CANDIRIA), Jeff Caxide (ISIS), Greg Puciato (THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN) and Julie Christmas (MADE OUT OF BABIES, BATTLE OF MICE) — has posted the song "Bloodletting" at this location. The track is featured on the band's debut five-song EP, due out this November on Rising Pulse Records.Commented Lamacchia: "The song 'Bloodletting' was originally written by Greg Puciato. When I heard the demo of the song I was blown away by the chorus. There were all these vocal layers of just screams that sounded like dying banshees. It was an inspiring new step forward for SPYLACOPA because before this the music we were writing for the project was based mostly on experimental ideas and sounds and a more unorthodox style of writing. When we passed it off to Julie, she just took the song to a whole new level with her eerie lyrics and disturbing vocal melodies. Jeff also played a great part in taking the song to new heights adding these incredible bass layers and textures. After that the whole thing just kind of came together in the mix by the man behind the curtain, Michael Barile (mastering/engineering). He did this thing in the bridge with one of Jeff's bass performances. Jeff was playing the part and theres a note that rings out and as he's recording the part he's reaching over to Jeff's bass and slowly down tuning the low bass string. It's just perfect for the part... he tunes it so low it just slowly disappears into the mix..." The band, which LaMacchia formed to explore experimental and hypnotic compositions while playing guitar in rock/jazz/crossover band CANDIRIA, has been working on the EP since 2006. LaMacchia states: "These are some of the best musicians I've ever worked with and the music on this EP speaks volumes of their talent. Fans will definitely be pleased."
