ISIS Members are Not Too Busy to Give a Multi-Faceted Update

I’ve been watching a lot of Archer lately. I just finished Season 1 on NetFlix, as a matter of fact, and the name ISIS has been emblazoned on the screen nearly every episode. Even the capitalized typeset of the acronym International Secret Intelligence Service reminds me of the metal band, who—one year removed from their official announced breakup—followed up on all their respective projects.

  • Mike Gallagher is scoring films and creating music under the name MGR
  • Aaron Turner is working with Faith Coloccia on Mamiffer and House of Low Culture
  • Jeff Caxide created CRONE with a release forthcoming
  • Clifford Meyer is in two new projects: Windmills By The Ocean and Taiga, as well as keeping Red Sparowes aflight
  • Aaron Harris continues his production career, and is currently working on the future album from Lesser Key
