Disperse drummer Mike Malyan releases 'Foreword' tab book

Michael Malyan has released a new drum tab book for DISPERSE's new album, 'Foreword'. The publication contains a complete drum transcription of 'Foreword' and features digital Guitar Pro 7/6/5 audio files, a PDF copy of the book, and much more. The volume is comb-bound on high-quality 100gsm paper. 
The book is available for purchase at this link:

To celebrate the release of the book, Mike Malyan is currently giving away the tabs to the band's single "Surrender" in digital form at this link:

Regarding the release of his tab book, the drummer comments: "I am so happy with this tab book. I have gone through and painstakingly mapped out the album drum parts, down to the extreme detail of exactly which cymbals were hit, and every single ghost note. Some parts are hybrids with some programmed drum elements, but the tabs encompass them into a playable hybrid of the two sounds! The digital book is written in Guitar Pro 6, and then optimized individually for the new Guitar Pro 7! I have also included GP5 files for those of you who have the older Guitar Pro 5 software, although I can't guarantee all of the ghost notes will make it through! The physical book is printed on high quality 100gsm paper, and comb bound by hand by yours truly!"

Mike Malyan has previously released a play-through video of the track "Surrender" taken from the band's current full-length 'Foreword'. The multi-cam video is still streaming at the link below.

The stick artist commented: "The song 'Surrender' is one of my favourites to play from 'Foreword'. The challenge of its intricate dynamics in the simpler sections almost trumps the later parts with the complex time signatures. Thankfully there is a mini drum solo section at the end to make up for all of the earlier difficulties."
