Canadian thrashers THINE EYES BLEED have issued the following update:"First and foremost, we are still a band and have not called it a day. Our biggest task in doing this was to once again find the right fifth man. We have had a rotating guitarist for far too long. "Don't get me wrong — we have been fortunate in having some talented people fill the slot. "When we began putting the wheels back on the truck, so to speak, we made the decision to find someone closer to home, both musically and regionally. "Jimmy Reid will always be our brother. We love and miss him and have nothing but respect for him. That being said, we have found someone else to fill the void. With that, we welcome Nigel Curley (EXCRUCIATING THOUGHTS, ATAXIA) into the mix. "We been jamming with Nigel for the past few months and working on new stuff. We have a bunch of new material ready to go. "We are scheduled to record March 12th with Siegfried Meier. We are all very excited and can't wait to get down to business. Shows to follow." THINE EYES BLEED's latest, self-titled album was released in April 2008 via The End Records. The band has since parted ways with the label. The group re-released its 2005 debut for The End Records, entitled "In the Wake of Separation", in May of 2006. The CD included the bonus track "Better off Dead" (previously available only in Japan) and the video for "Cold Victim". THINE EYES BLEED also took part in the mega-successful North American and European legs of the 2006 Unholy Alliance Tour, which featured SLAYER, CHILDREN OF BODOM, MASTODON and LAMB OF GOD.
