1. All our tracks have been recorded for the split with Helmsplitter except the bass for one song which is being handled by a friend of ours. Then just mixing and mastering. Coming out on Horror Pain Gore Death Productions. .
2. The split 7" with Bastard Noise is still coming on HAUNTED HOTEL RECORDS. Waiting on pressing plants. The norm for vinyl these days I'm afraid...
3. A recently discovered "lost" track recorded with Lee Altomare will be coming out as a split 7" (possibley one-sided) with Ginger Cortes on Petite Soles. The art is being worked on as we "speak"
We don't have specific dates for any of these but considering what stage they are at, expect them sooner than later. We were never good at spreading things out. Deal with it.

December 5th at Amityville Music Hall with Artificial Brain, Cognitive and Locus Mortis
December 6th at The Silent Barn with Bastard Noise, Nyodene D, HEXBREAKER QUARTET, and LEA + LEILA

Via Eric Wood:
"The test pressings for the long awaited split 7" e.p. between THE COMMUNION and BASTARD NOISE have been shipped from RAINBO RECORDS to be approved by both artists. This record is entirely dedicated to THE COMMUNION’s passed away guitarist and brother to us all : LEE ALTOMARE. It will be released by HAUNTED HOTEL RECORDS in the near future. "The Skull Communion Continues…" !!!!!"

seeing the phrase “Skull Communion” makes me faint with joy;


this one is for Lee Altomare

One of the many things I have enjoyed about working with “HBnBM” would have to be the people I have met and talked to through this site. Despite this, never did I think I would be communicating with one of my all-time favorite musicians. Recently, I had the pleasure of becoming acquainted with Eric Wood of Bastard Noise. Wood is noted for various projects, but for the sake of a contemporary demeanor, we discussed what he and B.N. have been up to as of lately. To those looking for the memoirs of legendary power-violence outfit, Man is the Bastard… I’m sorry, but this narrative will be focused on a different side of the grand scheme of, “The Skull”… How was your November show with the Locust? It’s insane to see that they’re playing again. It was phenomenal!!!! We are family with The Locust and Justin Pearson is my brother forever and offered us the show. What an amazing venue Porter’s Pub truly is!! The UCSD (University of California at San Diego) campus is joy to on and the venue was spitting distance from the famous, full of history Che’ Cafe. The sound at Porter’s Pub was incredible as well. Great …
The upcoming Bastard Noise / THE COMMUNION split release on HAUNTED HOTEL RECORDS gets a brief mention. thanks Eric Wood!

2 track album
four years ago today my best friend Lee Altomare passed away. think about him all the time.

for those of you who are new to THE COMMUNION, Lee was our guitarist/founding member. 90% of the music we have recorded was written by him, and he was a never ending source of good vibes (even when he was being relentlessly negative it was done so to make us laugh). he loved and lived for his friends, his family, and his music. check it out on bandcamp.
