Early Man is back in the studio, currently working on their long-awaited sophomore full-length with Jack Endino (High on Fire, Zeke, Valient Thorr, Nirvana). The still-untitled album - the follow up to the band`s critically-acclaimed 2005 debut Closing In (Matador) - will be released by The End Records in early 2009. Early Man - guitarist/vocalist Mike Conte, drummer Adam Bennati, guitarist Pete Macy, and bassist Tim Ramage - are keeping fans updated on their progress in the studio at this location.
In anticipation of the release of the forthcoming album, Early Man will be hitting the road for some dates out west with 3 Inches of Blood and Toxic Holocaust.
