Cult metal band TOXIK have announced that they are reuniting once again and working on a new album, which will be their first since 1989’s “Think This”.
Founding Josh Christian writes:
I’ve been writing this crazy heavy stuff for the last year. In 2007 when we got together, the absence of new material made the reunion feel more like jam sessions. This time around its based like it was originally on a collection of songs with a vibe. The plan is record and perform.
Vocalist Mike Sanders and bassist Brian Bonini will also be participating in the reunion, while the band is looking for a new drummer Tad Leger will not be joining them. Christian explains:
Tad is on the verge of something killer with his doom project/band Lucertola. It’s his baby as he writes the material and plays guitar essentially leading the band. We had planned on finishing the Lucertola disc together and then beginning work on a Toxik disc — at least that was discussed — but the reality is he can’t walk away from his art, and I totally respect that decision, we all do. I’m still hoping Tad shows up on at least one track but either way best of luck to my brother Tad Leger and Lucertola.
