Behold...The Arctopus has returned!
Experimental metal act, Behold...The Arctopus have allegedly 'respawned' this year after a few years of silence to play a couple of shows in Brooklyn, and hopefully a helluva lot more (a North American tour and an album would be just greeaaat, thank you). This has been confirmed by Colin Marsten, who's been doing his thing in the black metal band Krallice for a while. As someone who is completely uninterested in Krallice, this comes as completely welcome and awesome news.
The lineup is slightly different, as they've replaced their former drummer, Chris Zeleny, with Weasel Walter of The Flying Luttenbachers, and Cellular Chaos. The good news is, he seems up to par with the rest of the band. Stay alert, because I can see big things coming from these guys in the months ahead.
