Latest release: "Relentless Mutation"

Release date: Fri, Sep 22 2017, US Fri, Sep 22 2017

ARCHSPIRE guitarist Dean Lamb has announced a solo guitar clinic at Long and McQuade in Port Coquitlam, BC. The clinic will take place on March 24, and will include a performance, gear demos, lectures, and a special Q&A session. More information about Lamb's special appearance can be found below.


Regarding the clinic, Dean Lamb comments: "I'll be covering the techniques used in Archspire's music, as well as some new things I've been working on. Sweeping, tapping, hybrid picking, and combinations of these techniques to create new sounds, that will no doubt prove as much of a challenge to aspiring guitarists as they have presented to me. If you're looking to push yourself further, and looking for new inspiration on the instrument, you've come to the right place.

ARCHSPIRE are currently preparing to embark on the next leg of their 'Relentless Mutation' world tour. The band will leave for their first-ever Japanese tour (with OBSCURA) and pick up the "Chaos and Carnage" US tour with CARNIFEX and OCEANO immediately upon their return.
