The news of Cannibal Ox‘s reunion seemed to come and go without much impact. They launched a Kickstarter with the goal of raising $30,000 to fund a new album and only got $5,439 from 132 people, held a live reunion show that was pretty disappointing, and the new music has been… well, it doesn’t feel like the first time you listened to The Cold Vein, which is probably an unfair thing to say but it’s impossible not to think.

BUT fear no more, because the duo now has some new music in the form of a “maxi-single,” and they’re sounding pretty positive about it:

While Cannibal Ox’s seminal debut, The Cold Vein, was released in 2001, Vast & Vordul are also currently in the studio recording their long-overdue sophomore LP, which will be released in 2013, as Vast states “we never broke up, but the timing is now right for a new Cannibal Ox LP. Iron Galaxy Records is about to take over.”

After a successful west-coast tour run, Vast and Vordul are preparing for a east-coast run and recording new material for there forthcoming sophomore LP. Today, Cannibal Ox announces the release of a new Maxi-Single, “Gotham,” which includes three new tracks and will be available on 4-16-2013.
