BELIEVER: Writing For New Album Is 'Slowly Moving Forward'

BELIEVER/FOUNTAIN OF TEARS drummer Joey Daub has posted the following message on his web site:

"First, I need to apologize for the long time lapse between updates. It has been a crazy summer but it finally seems to be calming down. An end is in sight for the recording of the FOUNTAIN OF TEARS disc. The recording process has been somewhat drawn out, but upon listening back to some rough mixes of the songs, I feel it was well worth it. A few of the songs are floating around some labels and we are waiting to see if there is any interest there. In the meantime, we are preparing for the possibility of releasing the disc ourselves. We are continuing to play some shows and plan to keep spreading the name out there when and wherever we can. We recently had the opportunity to share the stage with THERION and we hope to have more chances like this in the future.

"The BELIEVER writing is slowly moving forward. Although Dr. Bachman [Kurt Bachman; BELIEVER guitarist/vocalist] is quite busy, we are still putting aside time for the project. My hope is that we can get some rough recordings on the site sometime in the future so we can get your feedback on the material.

Finally, this summer I caught the Gigantour in Atlantic City. Although my main objective was to see DREAM THEATER, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN and NEVERMORE, it was all good! My hat goes off to the boys in DILLINGER for shredding the stage. Chris Pennie was incredible to watch and listen to as were Liam and Greg — well, everyone. Upon hanging out and talking with the guys it was surprising to learn that they were into BELIEVER, which meant so much to me coming from great musicians. I can't say enough about Chris's chops. The guy has got it goin' on! I encourage all drummers to check him out. A great band and great guys!"
