The new cd is coming right along; the songs are pretty much done and are getting some final tweaking now. Michael Romeo says that the material has a little bit of everything, and reports that the band will begin tracking drums next month after their appearance at Heavy Montreal on August 10th.
The band’s long-awaited second fan club cd will also begin taking shape around the same time, with an anticipated release in time for the holidays. As mentioned previously, it will be another collection of demo tunes and other rare material, and may also include a bit of content created just for this cd (along the lines of MJR’s Star Wars tune on the first Rarities and Demos, which has since sold out of its first pressing). SXW, the band’s revamped fan club, will be relaunching in September.
Stumped at the last minute by what to get the SymX fan in your life for the holidays? Trying to decide how to spend that holiday check from Grandma? Did the boss actually cough up a holiday bonus this year? Let us help you with that!

Jason asked that this be posted in response to the outpouring of support he’s received over the past few days:
I can’t thank everybody enough for your support in this time. I am overwhelmed by the number of people who have written in on our various media outlets. I can feel the love and again can’t tell you how much it means to me.
I am doing my best to recover and all the positive vibes sure help!
