Assemblage 23 releases “Endure”, the eight studio album released by Metropolis Records on September 9th. After starting out on a solo project called Man on a Stage and being involved with several projects from punk with the Advocates to the electronic synth-pop of Procession, Assemblage 23 was a natural progression of founder Tom Shear. What was once a hobby gained recognition after self-releasing material called “Wired”. Albums “Contempt” with “Failure” as a follow up gave the band widespread recognition. In 2002, Assemblage 23 released “Defiance” and two years later returned with a fourth album called “Storm”. The album’s “Meta” and “Compass” would follow.
