Emberghost have recruited Michael Derks of Gwar as the featured guitarist on their Not Long For This Earth project.

Derks connected with Emberghost via mutual friend Kristen Randall, who was announced last week as the replacement for departed keyboardist and co-vocalist Sarah Jennings.

Derks says of his new venture: "Kristen and I have been talking about doing a project for years, and when she introduced me to Emberghost, I saw the perfect opportunity to do something different."

Emberghost vocalist Parker says, "It's really exciting to get to work with someone of this caliber. Mike brings a unique perspective to this project, and it will be better for it."

Not Long For This Earth, which the band has all but completely funded on Kickstarter, is Emberghost's acoustic retrospective celebrating the work they did with Sarah, who succumbed to brain cancer in 2010. Produced by Rob Daiker, NLFTEis collaboration with members of the Virginia Symphony Orchestra, and is expected to be released this fall.
