UK space metal four-piece Enos aren’t kidding when they say they’re “taking their time with this one” below. I had thought the impending album, their third and yet-untitled, would be out sometime in 2015, but no dice, and as the band continues to experiment with a two-drummer setup moving past their 2015 split with Mangoo, we approach three solid years since their last full-length, All too Human, was released. Not an unreasonable amount of time — they’ve had a live record since then as well, which also resulted in a DVD — but they’re about due. Then again, I felt that way in January too, so who knows. Let them take their time. Planet Earth will still be here (hopefully, anyhow) when they get back.
Last I saw, vocals were started Aug. 28. Here’s the latest update from the band:
Enos: Recording Update and more gigs!
Well, it’s been a while since we last had an update! Needless to say Enos have been sitting on our collective arse (not all the time anyway). As well as playing shows at The Prince Albert in Brighton, WPC Summer Sizzler in Brixton and our first (and possibly only) show with two drummers (which incidentally was a fund-raiser for Cancer Research UK. Sam Dorrell, who some of you will recognise from his appearance as our second drummer on our recent Son Of A Gun/The Grey Belly split with Mangoo, raised over £1000!) we’ve also been busy working on our new album! Many days have been spent tinkering in the studio and getting things sounding just right, we’re taking our time with this one.
As yet we have no release date set so keep an eye out on the various social media sites and our web page for updates. This album is a progression on All Too Human and Chapter One and, like the others, is designed to be listened to back-to-back with the other records. There’s still a lot of work to do (all good things are worth waiting for!) but make sure you follow us on Facebook and Twitter for regular studio updates, including videos.
We are very pleased to announce that we will be returning to France for two shows later in September! First up we will be playing at Stoned Orgies at La Scène Michelet in Nantes on Saturday the 26th. This will be our first time in Nantes and are looking forward to taking to the stage alongside Sunnata. Next up we’ll be heading back to Paris for Glad Stone Fest VIII at Glazart on Sunday the 27th.
Our first show outside of the UK was at Glad Stone Fest several years ago (also the first time we gave Another Solution from All Too Human a live outing) so we’re extremely pleased to be invited back. We’re also looking forward to returning to Glazart, if it’s anything like our show in February it will be superb. These are likely to be our last shows of the year as we will be heads down in the album from here on in. What a fantastic way to end the amazing ride we’ve been on since the release of All Too Human!
