PITCH BLACK FORECAST, an all-star project formed by Jason Popson (J Mann of MUSHROOMHEAD) and Gene Hoglan (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, DEATH, DARK ANGEL, TESTAMENT), will release "As The World Burns", a collection of remixed and remastered tracks from PITCH BLACK FORECAST's two previous releases (an out-of-print full-length and EP), on October 21 via Ferocious Records.
"This record is a compilation of my favorite PITCH BLACK FORECAST songs, which are remixed with additional tracking and far closer to my initial vision," said Popson, who recently rejoined MUSHROOMHEAD for the band's Top 20 Billboard-charting new record, "The Righteous & The Butterfly".
"The funny thing about side projects is the time frame in which you must deliver, sometimes things are rushed and unfocused. With this release, we've trimmed the fat and took our time compiling what I consider the definitive PITCH BLACK FORECAST release."
Asked what genre PITCH BLACK FORECAST falls under, Popson simply said "pissed" to describe the aggressive wallop of the material.
"As The World Burns" also features the debut of another J Mann side project called BITCH WRANGLER. A four-song EP entitled "Spitef*ck" will serve as bonus tracks on the CD.
