VOIVOD drummer Michel “Away” Langevin has issued an update on the band’s current activities:
"Hello there, Here's what's up: The video for Polaroids is finished. It was done with Banger Productions and Ottoblix and contains some of my animation work. I started working on the video for 'The X-Stream', also in collaboration with Banger Productions and Ottoblix. We will be recording the follow-up to Katorz in the fall 2007. I'm almost finished with the Roar re-issue on Sanctuary. It will include a bonus DVD pulled from the Iron Gang archives of the era. Expect a fall release.
Troubleman Unlimited are done with the layout of my art book. The book will contain 325 Voivod-related drawings and covers the years 1976-2006. No release date yet but it's getting close! Check out our new belt-buckles, soon on Bandmerch.com. My project LES ÉKORCHÉS is out on Indica/Outside. Produced by Glen Robinson. Info: lesekorches.com and myspace.com/lesekorches
My other project KOSMOS will come out this year on The End. Info: myspace.com/kosmostheband. Snake's project PARANOLAND is on the way. Also produced by Glen Robinson. Info: myspace.com/paranoland Also in the works: The Outer Limits and Angel Rat re-issues on The End. Killing Technology and Dimension Hatross re-issues with bonus Iron Gang DVDs on Sanctuary. DVOD 2 and DVOD 3 are coming along too.
That's about it I guess. I'm very sorry about the delays, all of this is a lot of work!"
