New album from The Pod up for pre-order:

"The Pod", otherwise known as the solo project of MAKE guitarist Scott Endres, has finished work on a new record titled 'Assassins in the Mirrored Hall' (mastered by MAKE's usual partner in crime, Nick Petersen) and is available for pre-order today.

The pre-order will stay up until enough funds have been raised (either through pre-order sales or Scott's paychecks) to press a bundle of CDs (those who pre-order will, of course, receive the CD once funds have been raised and the CDs are pressed). All pre-orders will give you an immediate digital download of the album along with two pre-order-exclusive bonus tracks not available later on or anywhere else. In addition, the first 20 pre-orders will come bundled with the first The Pod CD, 'Satellite'. And in addition to that the first 10 pre-orders will receive Scott's old psych-rock band SUNTAN's full length 'Send You Home' CD.

This pre-order package deal will update as disc bonuses sell out. If for any reason you wish to opt out of any bonus discs or physical copies, just say so in a message via bandcamp. Liner notes will appear on the physical CD and there will be a special section of thank yous for everyone who pre-orders as a gesture of sincere gratitude.

Here are a few details about this record which may be of interest to you:

* The record is largely inspired by and loosely based on The Book of the New Sun series by Gene Wolfe.

* The Pod in general is comprised of compositions from improvisations which are later cut apart, manipulated and assembled together.

* Both Spencer Lee and Matt Stevenson of MAKE have appearances on this record.

Cheers and thanks for listening!
