PITCHSHIFTER have completed work on their upcoming live album, "Bootlegged, Distorted, Remixed & Uploaded", for a March release through the group's own PSI Records. Commented producer/mixer Steve Duda: "It's been a challenge to capture the energy and intensity of PITCHSHIFTER on stage, but I think this album has it all. It's been a lot of fun working on the record. I hope it will show people what PITCHSHIFTER are capable OUT of the studio. They rock!"
The complete track listing for "Bootlegged, Distorted, Remixed & Uploaded" is as follows:
01. Eight Days
03. Hidden Agenda
05. What's In It For Me?

In other news, PITCHSHIFTER have recruited Tim Rayner, brother to current 'SHIFTER axeman Dan Rayner, to take over on rhythm guitar for the band's upcoming 16-date U.K. "farewell" tour.
When asked what he thought it would be like with two sets of brothers on the road (PITCHSHIFTER singer J.S. Clayden is the brother of the band's bassist, Mark Clayden), J.S. stated: "It should be a really nice atmosphere. Dan and Tim did some work with Machine, Jim and I on the 'PSI' record, so it's fitting that he should get to do this last run with us. It's great to have a brother watching your back on the road and now we've got four of them! As for Dan, well, he played lead for us at the IGGY POP Brixton show when Jim had a PRODIGY gig, so he's an old hand at this now. We're all really looking forward to the tour and can't wait to get out there and see all the fans one last time." Added Dan: "The guys have always made me feel very welcome in the band and I know part of that stems from having family on the road. It's going to be great to have my own brother with us on this one. Has that been done before? Two sets of brothers in a rock band?!"
