In related news keyboardist Morten Lybecker has left the band due to family priorities. Lybecker and WITHERING SURFACE depart in a spirit of friendship and understanding towards each others wishes. There’s no plans of a replacement, and in the future the other guys will take care of keyboard-parts themselves. The band is currently busy writing new material for the sequel to last year’s "Walking On Phantom Ice" album. 8 – 9 new songs have already been written. Some new titles include ‘This View’, ‘Exit Sculpture’, ‘State Of Emergency’ and ‘Inhale The Hyper Pulse’. A cover of Pretty Maids’ ‘Future World’ is also planned to be recorded. The band promises that it will be absolutely killer-material and will enter the Berno Studio in Malmö, Sweden in July and August to record the album with an expected release on Copro Records in Oct. / Nov. 2003. www.witheringsurface.dk.
Even though the band currently only consists of drummer Herb and guitarist / vocalist Mike, Germany’s ANASARCA are still around and will be entering the studio in April / May to record their third full length album, which once again will be released by Danish Mighty Music.
