Chicago’s Lord Mantis is back, with a retooled lineup that features former members of Indian, which broke up, I guess.
I wasn’t aware, but yeah…Indian is done, it seems.
The new Lord Mantis includes founding drummer Bill Bumbardner and lead guitarist Andrew Markuszewski (formerly of Nachtmystium).
The new dudes are Will Lindsay (Anatomy Of Habit, Abigail Williams, ex-Indian, ex-Nachtmystium, ex-Wolves In The Throne Room) on bass, Dylan O’Toole (ex-Indian) on vocals, and Scott Shellhamer (American Heritage, ex-Mares Of Thrace) on guitars.
The group also plans to collaborate with former Lord Mantis member Greg Gomer, who will contribute to the band’s upcoming recording sessions.
A new EP is written, and Lord Mantis will hit the studio by month’s end to start tracking.
