Lots of Solvent news to report. First off, check out his brand new website, including illustrations I did for the new retrospective "Demonstration Tape (1997-2007)". The two disc collection is published by Ghostly International and will be limited at first to one thousand copies available only at Solvent live shows and through the Ghostly and Suction stores starting in October.

"Demonstration Tape" was sequenced by Solvent and features all the hits, along with long-since out of print early work, rare and unreleased material, and two brand new songs. "In Light" has already become a sensation since being uploaded to Solvent's MySpace just a couple days ago. Listen to it here.

Solvent will be on the road a lot over the next few months, touring with VNV Nation in the northwest and Scandinavia, with Freezepop on the "Monsters of Electro-Pop" tour, and a handful of solo shows from Seattle to Istanbul to Hamburg to Malta.

Lowfish - Solvent's partner in Suction Records - is one very busy Canadian as well. Lowfish headlined the Sensory Effects Showcase at the 07 Decibel Festival in Seattle this past Saturday [photo above by Bethany Shorb] and his brand new album "Burn The Lights Out" should be out on Satamile any day now. Listen to the first single, "The Controlling Hand", on Lowfish's MySpace page.
