Al-Thawra live bootleg w/ our new singer, Sahar

We just randomly found a torrent online somewhere of our last show at the Empty Bottle. The entire set was bootlegged, complete with photos. Naturally, we found this to be pretty awesome, and we thought since new material got recorded for the first time, it would be a perfect opportunity to introduce a new song and our new/old singer, Sahar.

Sahar was one of the earliest Al-Thawra members, way back in 2007, when she was still a wee teenager. It's good to have her back, and she'll definitely add some new texture to new recordings.

The song is called, "Psalm of the Sniper." Hopefully, we'll be committing this plus another few new tracks to some kind of recorded format within the next few months.  Anyway, the content of this song hits close to my heart, both in a personal and political way. As blood is spilling on the streets of Daraa and Homs, people are forced to quell the voices of their neighbors. I shouldn't say too much now, but when this song is officially released, be prepared for some tear-jerking poetry.

If you want the full bootleg, feel free to e-mail us for the link. Without further ado, here are some more photos from the bootleg and the new track....
