First quarter of 2019!

Here's a mammoth update for the first quarter of 2019! First off, the two-track Gladiatori dell'Apocalisse (edit) digital single, originally released for's California Wildfire Benefit, is now available to stream and download! 

Featuring two previously unreleased tracks, the long-play single sees me revisit and finalize an Italo-flavored outtake from the 2016 Gladiatori dell'Apocalisse 12" EP sessions, with Andrew Claristidge (of Acid Washed) providing a remix of the b side track The Ravagers. Available via Bandcamp and all streaming platforms, teaser video here.

Second, the physical version of my six-track EP tribute to John Carpenter's iconic 1982 classic The Thing - Outpost 31 Isn't Responding - is finally available! 

Originally released in the fall of 2015, the 2018 ’redux’ version saw the digital single completely remixed and remastered, and expanded with session outtakes, one freshly-penned track, plus my reimagining of Ennio Morricone's Humanity Pt. 1 added as bonus tracks!

Manufactured on snow-white cassettes with full color A and B side stickers, the "cassingle" comes with a wrap-around sleeve featuring Van Davis' gorgeous original artwork printed on premium recycled card stock. Available via Bandcamp! Teaser videos here and here.

Finally, having received the news that my Test Subject 011 EP is mentioned in Kevin J. Wetmore Jr's book Uncovering Stranger Things, I decided to print up a limited-edition sleeve for the 7" vinyl version to celebrate! 

The VHS-inspired alternate artwork, featuring Stranger Things character Eleven in an action pose, is printed on 130 gram folded paper stock, comes in a plastic sleeve and is hand numbered to 50 copies! 

Only available via Bandcamp here, it includes a download of the digital EP version that now adds the alternate mix of Test Subject 011 (from the Choice Cuts 2014 - 2018 album) as a bonus track!
