Hey guys, we just uploaded a new video to our YouTube. It’s a video of Shaun And Jarred doing a play-through of our song “The Pendulum Swing” off our upcoming album “Sessions”. Click play to check it out!
Also we’re now accepting pre-orders for our new album “Sessions”.
It’s getting close! We’re gearing up to release our second full length titled “Sessions” that has been in the works for quite some time. We’re trying to raise the funds to get the album out quicker by offering a sweet pre-order deal. For only $10.00 you can get our album “Sessions” on CD with a free signed poster! Just visit our store at http://thesummoned.bigcartel.com to order today!
We just released a new video of Shaun recording guitars for the new album “Sessions” which even includes raw unmixed/mastered clips. Recording is nearing completion. All we have left is bass (in progress), vocals and sound samples. Once those are done we may throw up a rough track online but we really want you to experience how it will truly sound once Jamie King (Between The Buried and Me’s, Colors & Coma Ecliptic) masters it.
Once all that good stuff is complete it’s really a matter of pre-orders for the album. Expect a late 2015 release or an early 2016 release. We think as a fan of The Summoned you will truly enjoy this album and really be taken back as to how unique it truly is. It’s definitely a depart from The Summoned you’re used to but have all of our albums/EP’s really sounded the same? You be the judge. Check the video out and let us know what you think!

Man this record is really starting to come along. We’re doing a lot of cool effects and Evan is helping us achieve the best sound possible. So far we have guitars finished for 7 out of the 9 songs. All we need to finish for guitars are the songs “Primogenial Birth” and “Vertiginous” which we saved for last because they’re the hardest. We have also been doing some real cool sounds using an Ebow on both electric and acoustic guitars. Below is a link of Shaun playing with some Ebow effects as well as a little teaser within. Let us know what you think, just comment below! Also be sure to add us on all our social networks @thesummoned for live updates from the studio!
What a way to go on a break with a bang! Last night’s show was truly awesome. Lots of friends and new faces came out to watch us tear down The Dover Brickhouse. All the bands last night ruled! Both EA-Indigo and Unrest In Transit really killed it. Be sure to check them out on all their social media sites. If you missed last night’s show you also missed out on us playing a brand new song called “Built of Glass” which will be on the new album “Sessions”, seems like people really liked it which is an awesome sign. We really think you guys will like the new album. So what’s next for The Summoned? We’ll be taking a break from playing shows to finish recording the album, tend to some family matters and come up with an awesome game plan for an EPIC return. We’ gonna have all new music, merch and lighting to really put on a visual/audio experience for our shows when we come back in full effect. Who knows, perhaps we’ll tour for the new album when we come back? Only time will tell. Once again thank you for your support last night. Shows like last night truly make us a stronger. Without you this wouldn’t be possible!
