Brief Fates Warning Update

b-mouth link

Guitarist Jim Matheos of U.S. progressive metal icons FATES WARNING has issued the following update:

"I'm happy to say that all the music for [the new FATES WARNING album] is now written (finally!). Still some lyrics to do, but we're close. Looking forward to sharing this with you in 2013."

Not a ton there, but it does confirm there is or should be a new record coming in 2013. Of course I'm jazzed about it, although I do suspect there will be a lot comparisons to the Arch/Matheos record Sympathetic Resonance, from 2011.

It'll be nice to finally hear music from Ray Alder that I will likely enjoy again. But we'll see. It seems like it's been ages since 2004's FWX . This album also should feature new drummer Bobby Jarzombek who played on the Arch/Matheos record of course, and has been playing live with FW off and on over the last 5 or more years.
