SCION A/V RELEASES LEAD TRACK FROM FORTHCOMING MESHUGGAH ALBUM FOR EXCLUSIVE DOWNLOAD

SCION A/V RELEASES NEW MESHUGGAH TRACK! - 2012-03-20 00:00

2012-03-20 00:00 - Mar. 20, Torrance, Calif. – Scion A/V has partnered with Sweden’s extreme, technical metal band MESHUGGAH to bring fans an exclusive digital music download, limited edition 7”, behind-the-scenes footage from their upcoming North American tour, and a concert ticket giveaway. MESHUGGAH’s forthcoming album, KOLOSS, is set for a North American release on March 27th via Nuclear Blast. The lead track “I Am Colossus” is available to download now for free at http://scionav.com/meshuggah.

MESHUGGAH drummer Tomas Haake comments on the opening track:

“‘I Am Colossus’ is way more straightforward than the thrash metal we grew up with. At the same time, it does pose its own difficulties for us as players. It will probably be one of the first songs we attempt to play on tour. The solo - which is basically two long notes that are slow bends - just turned out beautiful. Such an understatement as a guitar solo. Sometimes a slow song is just as aggressive as a fast one.”

A limited edition 7” will be available in black, clear, yellow, and white vinyl, and given away for free on MESHUGGAH’s upcoming tour, courtesy of Scion A/V.

“The opportunity to work with Meshuggah is something we’re very excited about,” says Jeri Yoshizu, manager of sales promotion for Scion. “As we continue to evolve our metal initiatives, a collaboration with a band this talented is a logical next step.”

MESHUGGAH is headlining “SCION A/V PRESENTS: The Ophidian Trek” tour with guests BARONESS & DECAPITATED, which kicks off April 29th. Confirmed dates are:
