Systems Overload-era Integrity record first new song in 20 years (stream a sample)
By Doug Moore
If you've been watching this space, you know that we're stoked about the reunion of Systems Overload-era Integrity. We streamed the band's remix/remaster of the album in full a few weeks back; Invisible Oranges is sponsoring the A389 10th Anniversary Bash in Baltimore next month, which they're headlining. (The final lineup and schedule for the fest was announced last week.)
Since getting back together, this vintage version of Integrity has evidently found time to record a new tune -- their first since the early '90s. In classically grandiloquent Integrity fashion, it's entitled "7th Revelation: Beyond The Realm Of The VVitch" (yes, that's an Ancient VVisdom-style double V), and it'll be available on a 7" at the A389 bash as part of the festivities.
A389 has posted a 30-second clip of the song to their Bandcamp, which you can listen to below. Unsurprisingly, it's tough to get a clear sense of the tune from a snippet of this length, but the production and riff fragments it offers sound fairly consistent with the S-O sound.
Check out that sample, plus the full stream of the Systems Overload, below.
