I finally got the story behind recent Misra signee Southeast Engine (Athens, OH.) and recent line up changes. Band singer/songwriter Adam Remnant wrote:
As we were finishing A Wheel Within a Wheel, we got the opportunity to sign with Misra records, which also entailed everyone in the band to sort of rearrange our lives in order to devote more time to the band: touring, recording, practicing, and all the other work that goes into making a band run smoothly. With all this in the works, it became clear that only Leo DeLuca, Adam Torres, and myself could fully commit to the band. The other guys couldn’t keep up with the band’s schedule due to family, work, bills, etc. We considered a rotating cast to keep the original members, but it seemed too unpractical. We are all really disappointed that we couldn't maintain the line-up we had to record A Wheel Within a Wheel, but the band is also really excited to embark on the tour with our new line-up.
Jesse Remnant and Gaelan Mullins are the new additions, and both are permanent fixtures covering bass and keyboards. There is a strong possibility that we will work with Josh Antonuccio again in the future as an engineer/producer, and we plan to have Michael Lachman play organ with the band at our regional shows after the tour.
If one things for sure, the band will continue to gain attention after its CD is released next month. I'm looking forward to tracking their progress, nationally speaking.
