Former Frodus member Nathan Burke's new project The Out Circuit has set a release date for their sophomore record. Titled Pierce The Empire With A Sound, the album is due out February 12, 2008. The band was recommended by Thrice who also lent their frontman to the record.

Along with Dustin Kensrue, the record features guest appearances from Sean Ingram of Coalesce, Rachel Burke of Beauty Pill, as well as members of Roadside Monument, The Epochs, Haram, and more. The members of Thrice add:
Nathan Burke holds to the bracing–yet–beautiful instrumental melodies that Burn Your Scripts was noted for, but builds on those, positioning them opposite a heavier sound actualized by occasionally screamy vocals and a driving rhythm section. Pierce the Empire With A Sound offers you that rare space where darkness and beauty collide.
