GASR is hard at work on developing their second album for Nilaihah,
tentatively titled 'REPTILE.' A polemic with teeth,
the album steps away from the sunny themes of domestic violence, rape,

uncomfortably intimate record meant as a thoughtful and violent reaction
to life in post-9/11 America. 15 demo tracks have been composed, representing
a more aggressive yet still melodic and infectious sound for the band,
who expect to whittle the tracks down to around 10 solid cuts. More
details and previews to come in 2006...
