PrintMURASHITA, the new project lead by former HEMOPTYSIS Front Man/Guitarist Masaki Murashita is currently in studio recording the debut single to be released this summer.

Masaki says, “I’m excited to have fans of my former band, and new project to hear the debut song from the upcoming release. It’s taking my music to the next level and is already getting amazing feedback from the few who have previewed it. Details will be announced soon!”

Masaki Murashita first showed his scorching riffs and powerful songwriting, along with his blistering and aggressive vocal style with the critically acclaimed modern thrash band HEMOPTYSIS.

Combining elements of melodic, thrash, modern, and extreme metal, Masaki molded his own razor sharp brand of metal that has left audiences and critics alike awestruck, and demanding more.

    Hemoptysis_2011_bandphotoThe very hard decision to end Hemoptysis in its current form has been made.
    In the end it is the best decision to be able to move forward into the future both musically and personally.

    First of all, we can’t thank our fans enough for the support they’ve given us. When Masaki and Travis started this band 7 years ago, they never dreamed
    they would accomplish all they have, and that success is due mostly to the support of our amazing fans.
    We really look forward to having them behind us as we move on to the next chapter of our music and careers.

    To all the amazing people who contributed funds to our Indiegogo campaign, we have an email coming to you about the status of the music, and our
    exciting new plans. We look forward to having you on board, so please check your inbox and keep an eye out.

    To our local fans, we are unfortunately not playing the show on Sat, June 7th at Joe’s Grotto, but please come out and support all other awesome bands on
    this bill!

    Singer/Guitarist Masaki Murashita, the songwriter and founding member of Hemoptysis is hard at work preparing to release new music later this year, taking the Hemoptysis sound to into its next incarnation.

          Masaki2011Hemoptysis Guitarist/Front Man Masaki Murashita has posted a video about his new “All-In-One Pedalboard”.
          The video is available at this location.

          Murashita comments: “I’ve made this pedalboard for small shows and tours. It’s small, light, and easy to set up at the shows without sacrificing sound. Everything is visible in front of me and easy to handle. The ISP Theta Preamp Pedal & Stealth Power Amp, and Providence PEC-2 made this possible and I highly recommend any guitar players out there to try this system.”

          The band is in pre-production with Producer Ryan Greene (Megadeth, NOFX) for their forthcoming five song EP and will be entering the studio this winter.
