The Contagion Effect is formed from the ashes of deathcore band Whisteria Cottage. The band consists of 4 of the 5 original members with Chris Booth and Mike Anderson returning to their respective roles on guitar and drums. Cory Myers makes the transition from bass to guitar.
The Contagion Effect also brings the highly anticipated return of original vocalist Mike Comegys. Regarding the new band and direction, Mike Comegys comments, “We are more than happy with the new direction andsound we are going for. This new song is only a small taste of what we have coming up. We have plans for an EP later this year and will be hitting up some shows here shortly. Just want to say thanks to everyone who has shown there support. We could not do it without you!”
The band is currently writing material for a forthcoming EP, tentatively scheduled for a late Fall 2011 release.
