Dead in 5 CD Release

When Detroit rockers Dead in 5 planned their CD release party for Saturday May 4th at The Token Lounge, the group was confident their six song debut EP would be finished in plenty of time for the celebration. But just short of their manufacturing deadline, the band’s producer, Andy Patalan (owner of The Loft Studios in Saline and guitarist for Platinum hit-makers Sponge), gave them a call. “Something wasn’t right,” explains Dead in 5 guitarist Brent Hall. Patalan informed the anxious group that there was a technical glitch – and in order to get the sound perfect – there would have to be some re-recording.

Listen in below for the first tune released on their new CD:

“It’s not what we wanted to hear – but we were grateful that Andy cared enough to get it right,” adds guitarist Peder Seglund.

So with a few tracks redone the disc will be ready for release – but unfortunately not in time for Dead in 5’s official release party on May 4. To appease fans – the band will be giving away one single from forthcoming disc to everyone who attends. “And we’ll be throwing a hell of a party anyway!” affirms Dead in 5 lead singer Robert Libres.

Joined by a potent line up of hard rock bands that includes Crackjaw, Mindrought, Spork, and Downriver Zero, the party will also feature a Lucky Monkey Tattoo giveaway, tarot card readings, a “six-way” birthday party, and in a nod to Cinco De Mayo – a skull piñata and ice luge! Raw Radio X’s Rikki Roxx will also act as MC.

While Dead in 5’s debut CD won’t be available at the show – fans will be able to buy band T-shirts, and lead singer Robert Libres’ infamous homemade hot sauces “Demon’s Blood” and “Face Melter.”

Dead in 5 anticipates their CD will be ready in time for the band’s upcoming shows at The Blind Pig (Ann Arbor) on May 10 and Churchill’s (Flint) on May 11.

Outlaw rockers Dead in 5 includes former members of three-time Detroit Music Award winners for “Outstanding Hard Rock Group” 60 Second Crush and acclaimed metal outfit Mansfield Park. The 5-piece original rock act evokes a hemi-powered mash up of Clutch, Soundgarden and Rob Zombie. It’s a rock and roll juggernaut guaranteed to get fists pumping.

Jeremy Porter and The Tucos Celebrate Record Release on March 29
The Ryan Dilaha Band and Oak Bones Join Party at New Dodge Lounge

Twang soaked Americana rockers Jeremy Porter and The Tucos celebrate the release of their new record Partner in Crime at Hamtramck’s New Dodge Lounge on Friday, March 29. Doors are at 9 pm and cover is just $5. Ages 18 and over are welcome to attend. Adding to the festivities will be Detroit-tinged honky tonk by The Ryan Dilaha Band and Oak Bones.

Partner In Crime is the first full-length record by Jeremy Porter and The Tucos, and is now available on limited edition vinyl, CD and download via Detroit’s New Fortune Records. The disc was recorded at The Loft Studios in Saline, Michigan, with acclaimed producers Andy and Tim Patalan helming the project.

The twelve-song CD “ is full of lost love, regret, heartache and a little bit of desperation,” explains Porter. “I think that the best art comes from pain and emotional trauma.”

But music fans can expect plenty of fun at the band’s record release party. “My roots are in punk rock so the live shows tend to be more upbeat, faster and rowdier than you might expect,” adds Porter.

The band’s record release party also kicks off a Midwest tour with shows slated in Pittsburgh, Cleveland and Kalamazoo.

Don’t miss a great night of rock and twang from Jeremy Porter and The Tucos at the New Dodge Lounge on March 29!

Tongue in Cheek Rockers A.S.S. Celebrate CD Release March 1st at The Token Lounge

ASS Band Photo-1

Join metal mongers A.S.S. for a hard rocking party celebrating the release of their debut CD “Easy Pieces of A.S.S.” at Westland’s Token Lounge on Friday. March 1. Supporting A.S.S. is a formidable line up of hard rock bands including Banned from Hell (Black Sabbath Tribute act focused on the Dio Years and featuring Rachel May of Broadzilla on vocals), Dark Avenger (hot off their appearance with Steel Panther), Mare Crisium and Stone The Herd. Lucky Monkey Tattoo will also be on hand – awarding a $50 gift certificate and prize pack to contenders with the most interesting booty tattoo!

Doors are at 8 pm and tickets are $5 for ages 21 and up, $7 for ages 18 -20. Stone the Herd (featuring Billy Gray from Collateral Damage) goes on promptly at 8:30 pm – so rock fans should get there early!

Prior to the show – A.S.S. is hosting a “Show Us Your A.S.S. Album Cover Contest.” Now through February 23, contestants can submit a JPEG photo of their backsides to asskicksass@gmail.com. The band will pick three winners to have their derrieres featured on three limited edition alternate A.S.S. album covers – only available at the CD release party on March 1!

In addition to being featured on the CD cover – each winner will receive a prize pack from the band, along with free admission to the release party on March 1.

Working with producer/musician (Sponge) Andy Patalan at The Loft Studios in Saline, Michigan, “Easy Pieces of A.S.S.” captures the band’s over the top lyrics, and hard driving metal.

Fronted by vocalist Brian Thomas of legendary Detroit band Halloween, A.S.S. is a five piece metal band that doesn’t take itself too seriously. “Take three veteran musicians, add two hungry young guns, sprinkle in heavy doses of sarcasm and attitude and crank the volume to 12 and that’s A.S.S!” explains the band’s drummer Foot. In addition to Thomas and Foot, cousins TJ and Brandon Richardson shred on guitars, with bassist Chris Taylor (Youthcorpse) thumping out a growling low-end.

The band’s name demonstrates their comedic side – A.S.S. is an acronym that stands for everything from Anonymous Super Stars to Already Seeing Someone! Fans frequently email the band suggestions for what each letter should stand for – leading A.S.S. to change its meaning at every show!

“Each band member has a great sense of humor,” adds Thomas. “Though we’re serious about our music, I think heavy doses of irony, frustration, humor and parody are common elements in our songs.”

“Whether you like early 70′s hard rock to 21st century metal, there’s always something to love about A.S.S. “ Thomas surmises.

Don’t miss a raucously fun rock party at the Token Lounge on Friday, March 1 with A.S.S.!
