Pitch Black Forecast to Release New Album, Featuring Guest Appearances by Avenged Sevenfold’s M. Shadows, Lamb of God’s Randy Blythe, and More
Pitch Black Forecast, an all-star project formed by Jason Popson (J Mann of Mushroomhead) and Gene Hoglan (Strapping Young Lad, Death, Dark Angel), has signed a deal with Ohio-based Ferocious Records for release of a new album featuring guest spots from Randy Blythe (Lamb Of God), Devin Townsend (ex-Strapping Young Lad), and M. Shadows (Avenged Sevenfold).
The as-yet-untitled project includes completely remixed and remastered tracks from Pitch Black Forecast’s two previous self- releases (an out-of-print full-length and EP), plus a special bonus EP by Bitch Wrangler.
“This record is a compilation of my favorite Pitch Black Forecast songs, which are remixed with additional tracking and far closer to my initial vision,” said Popson, who recently rejoined Mushroomhead for their Top 20 Billboard-charting new record, The Righteous & The Butterfly.
“The funny thing about side projects is the time frame in which you must deliver, sometime things are rushed and unfocused. With this release we’ve trimmed the fat and took our time compiling what I consider the definitive Pitch Black Forecast release.”
Popson will appear with Mushroomhead on the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival this summer.
Asked what genre Pitch Black Forecast falls under Popson simply said “pissed!”
As stated previously, the album features guest vocals from Blythe, Shadows, and Townsend, and will include a special bonus EP. The project will mark the debut of another Popson side project named Bitch Wrangler. A four song EP titled Spitef*ck will be included as bonus tracks.
“Bitch Wrangler is some totally original, experimental music that is meant to offend,” Popson said.
Both the Pitch Black Forecast and Bitch Wrangler projects will be released this fall.
