Bassist Justin Marchant has parted ways with The Summoned due to personal reasons. The split was mutual, we cherished every moment we had having him around and wish him the best of luck in all his future endeavors. Justin will be finishing up the album and filling in for select shows until a replacement is found.
With that said we are now officially looking for a new bassist. If you’re looking to play bass in a serious band and live around the Lowell, MA area below are some of the requirements for what we’re expecting in a new bassist.

Here it is…a little clip from the songs “The Pendulum Swing”, “Faradic” and “Built of Glass” off the new album “Sessions”. This is just a rough mix of drums and guitars recorded direct in using a Kemper Profiler until reamping begins. Click the play button to listen!
Now that drum tracking is completed we have begun guitar tracking! So far we have three songs finished. Those songs are “The Pendulum Swing”, “Faradic” and “Built of Glass”. Be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or Vine because we’re always posting videos up on them while in process.
So here it is…we’re getting to that point where the album is truly coming together. In fact we have 9 songs with structures all completed. It’s going to clock in a little over 45 mins so definitely a great driving album! With that being said name of the album is titled “Sessions”. We’ll be recording with Evan Sammons from Last Chance To Reason. If we have some of the funds available we’ll be looking to record in Late September / Early October. It’s not easy being in an unsigned and dropping a few grand on an album definitely takes it’s toll financially. So we wanted to get your opinion. Should we do a crowd funding campaign to help raise money for the album? You can click the link below to vote! With that being said…the track listing.
“Sessions” ( Full Length)
1. The Pendulum Swing
3. Primogenial Inception
4. The Grave Mistake

Should We Start an Indiegogo or Kickstarter Campaign to fund the new album?
