JEFF LOOMIS Begins Working on New Music;
To Head Out with 7 EYES 7 HORNS

This July, guitar wizard JEFF LOOMIS will head out on the "Intrinsic 2012" Tour. Presented by MetalSucks.net, the run will take JEFF LOOMIS throughout North America alongside THE CONTORTIONIST, CHIMP SPANNER and label-mates 7 HORNS 7 EYES. In addition, JEFF LOOMIS will play four headlining dates featuring 7 EYES 7 HORNS as direct support. A full list of dates can be seen below.

Not only has JEFF LOOMIS been preparing for this tour, but he has also been working on new material. According to Joe Nurre, the touring guitarist and vocalist in Jeff Loomis' band, "Jeff and I have collaborated musically on two of the songs, and I have lyrics and vocals written for the three." Touring drummer Anup Sastry will be programming the drums, and producer Aaron Smith will be recording and mixing.

While residing in Wisconsin as a teenager, the former Nevermore guitarist played in a few death metal bands, and with these tracks, Loomis is going back to his roots. "The vocals will be more aggressive and death metal-like," Nurre explains. There are plans to release the recordings digitally sometime in July, with samples of songs to be available beforehand. Nurre adds, "We will be playing some of these songs on our upcoming tour with The Contortionist.
