Tool's Paul D'Amour Returns With Feersum Ennjin
Following his work with Tool, D'Amour created the psychedelic outfit Lusk with Brad Laner (Medicine), Greg Edwards (Autolux, Failure) and Chris Pitman (Gun N'Roses). Lusk released one critically-acclaimed and Grammy-nominated release, Free Mars, in 1997 but their label imploded shortly thereafter and the group subsequently disbanded. D'Amour moved on to film composition, where he has spent the next dozen years quietly working on music for film and television.
"Feersum Ennjin really started as a series of studio experiments but gradually took on a life of its own." Explains D'Amour on the reasons why he decided the time was right to create a new band after all of these years. "All of the different musical experiences of my past took form as I found a melodic thread to tie them all together as one sound. I'm looking forward to taking the next step, to make Feersum Ennjin a living, breathing entity that exists beyond the studio."
Feersum Ennjin was recorded at various Los Angeles studios with D'Amour acting as producer. The band will announce tour dates shortly. Check em out on Facebook
