Southern California metallers, Oblige, have issued the following update via the band's Official Myspace Page:

Oblige is proud to announce the addition of bassist Mike Bodkins (ex-Suicide Silence) and rhythm guitarist Greg Pewthers (ex-Impending Doom). The band has been extremely busy finishing up their new album, with plans to record and release this year. A pre-production track entitled "Drip Drip" has been premiered online, and can be found here. In addition, Oblige has also respectfully parted ways with former label Stillborn Records.

The band comments, "Oblige is going stronger than ever right now, and we are very excited to release our new full length. We plan to tour as much as possible in support of the record. Thanks so much to everyone who has supported us, we cant wait to see everyone on the road."

The bands debut album, 'Expectants', was released in October of 2007 via Stillborn Records.
