The Skinny: Jeff Loomis is proud to reveal his brand-new song, “A Liar’s Chain.” The song was recorded with his touring line-up consisting of young talents Joe Nurre (guitar and vocals), Anup Sastry (drums) and Greg Macklin (bass). Jeff comments: “‘A Liar’s Chain’ is the first of three songs that I recorded with my band to officially debut online. We started playing it live on our last US run and it seemed to go over really well with fans. I had so much fun recording ‘Surrender’ with Ihsahn on vocals for my last solo album that I wanted to do more songs like that. Joe Nurre, who has been playing guitar in my band for the last year or so, has a pretty killer death metal voice, so I thought it would be perfect to do some more stuff like this with him as well as the rest of the guys.”
He continues: “I’m really looking forward to getting over to Europe again. I have so much fun there. The Euroblast tour and festival has some amazing musicians on it, which is going to be really special for me as well, as I love watching and hearing great bands play. We’re going to be playing ‘A Liar’s Chain’ as well as one other new song with Joe singing. I look forward to seeing everyone there.”
Jeff Loomis’ second solo album Plains Of Oblivion was released in April 2012 via Century Media Records. The album was produced by Aaron Smith (7 Horns 7 Eyes) and features cover artwork by Colin Marks of Rain Song Design, who did previous work on Jeff’s solo debut Zero Order Phase, as well as Nevermore, Bleed From Within, Aborted and many more.
