After a nearly yearlong search for a new guitarist DOGBANE has issued the following:
"We here at Dogbane are extremely pleased to announce the addition of guitarist Jeff Rinehart into our ranks. With over twenty plus years of guitar and songwriting experience, Jeff's presence will only serve to expand our sound as well as the pool of influences from which we draw. Having grown up during the same era as us, Jeff's knowledge of traditional heavy metal and the NWOBHM movement are second to none. These influences are only foreshadowed by his fondness for such acts as CACOPHONY, RACER X, and the atmospheric doom of MY DYING BRIDE. Certainly these influences will continue to push our boundaries and further our collective potential. Jeff's work ethic and his ability to create has already become an asset as we continue to work on material for our next release. So, join us as we welcome our new brother into the fold and begin the next chapter of our musical conquest."
The doom rockers recently released a video for the song ‘Ride The Serpent’, taken off the band’s 2011 debut Residual Alcatraz. The video, directed and produced by TJ Webb and starring actress Valaria Sweet, can be seen below:
In live news, Dogbane will be performing on July 27th at The Casbah in Durham, NC with BEDOWYN and THE PLOW.
