Jacksonville, Florida hard rock quintet ALLELE has inked a deal with MTV's Hype Music label. The band recently spent time with Scott Bush of Timeline Studios in Cape Coral, Florida recording five new songs.
A press release states: "In today's repetitious rock world, it's refreshing when an artist comes along with a truly engaging and entertaining sound that can grasp the listener's attention and leave a mark that is not soon forgotten. As you listen to an album and accurately experience the passion the artist felt, you carry that connection and share it with everyone around you. This is definitely the case with Jacksonville's ALLELE, as the Florida five-piece has been tearing up stages across the U.S. alongside major artists like SALIVA, CHIMAIRA, TANTRIC, SOIL, TAPROOT, NONPOINT, STAIND, SEVENDUST and SHINEDOWN, all along the way building an army of devoted followers."
ALLELE's sophomore album, "Next To Parallel", was released lat year via Goomba Music. The CD was produced by the band and mixed/mastered at Jacksonville's MyPlatinumSound by Paul Lapinski (RED JUMPSUIT APPARATUS, ALICIA KEYS, EVERGREEN TERRACE, PUDDLE OF MUDD, MOLLY HATCHET, YELLOWCARD). The vocal tracks were engineered by Pete Charell (bassist of TRAPT) at Dexter Dog Studios in Laguna, California.
ALLELE (pronounced Uh-Leel) was formed in 2002 by vocalist Wally Wood and guitarist Lane Maverick.
