Former Born Against frontman Sam McPheeters has announced that he will be releasing a new novel of fiction titled The Loom of Ruin. The book is being published by LA-based publisher, Mugger Books. Sam had this to say about the story:
[It] could be called a "satire" or "dark comedy" or a "story in which lots of terrible things happen to a lot of good people". If you like my writing, you will like this book. It was written with you in mind.

Worse, they'd done so with the tenacity of a cockroach, refusing to die, or even peak.
