Igor Spectre’s side project THE BLACKSHANKS launched their debut LP this week, with two music videos and a 26-minute album available only on iTunes, Amazon, and SoundCloud.
The Blackshanks consists of Igor guitarist B. O’Malley on guitar and lead vocals, Igor keyboardist Mary Sonic Woo on keys, Igor drummer Tim Kinzy on drums, and Igor bassist Dan on bass, and the project came together as a result of Igor Spectre having severe downtime this year due to singer Robert James’ illness and Igor lineup changes. More videos coming soon. As for live shows, we’ll have to keep you posted on that, as Igor is back in the studio at work on our new album!
