Depswa have offered an update on their long delayed sophomore album Distorted American Dream. Coming seven years after their major label debut, the band is back doing things independently, here's what the band had to say...
"O.K. I know we've been pretty quiet about what has been going on with the album, but that was because, we have jumped the gun several times in the past and then stuff changed. So... sorry about that!!!
When we announced that we were going to release a 7-song EP, we got some negative feedback and we decided to listen to all of you. We had 21 songs recorded...why only release 7... hadn't you guys waited long enough? YES! We felt we owed you all more...so we decided to enlist the services of Toby Wright (Alice in Chains, etc) and Logan Mader (Five Finger Death Punch, Devil Driver, Soulfly, etc) to mix the album, to make it the best it can be.... and you WON'T be disappointed!!! They (and Jeremy [Penick - singer/guitarist]) absolutely KILLED IT with the mixes.... It sounds amazing!!!!

1. Distorted reverbnation.com/depswa until !!!
