F5 the Phoenix-based band featuring former MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson, ex-SICK SPEED vocalist Dale Steele, guitarists Steve Conley and John Davis, and ex-MEGADETH drummer Jimmy DeGrasso has posted a new song, "No Excuse", on its MySpace page. The track comes off the group's forthcoming sophomore album, "The Reckoning", which is due on August 19 through OarFin Distribution. The follow-up to 2005's "A Drug for All Seasons" was produced by Ryan Greene at his Crush Recording facility in Scottsdale, Arizona.
F5 called in Ellefson's longtime rhythm section cohort Jimmy DeGrasso to play drums on the new album following the recent departure of original F5 drummer Dave Small.
"A Drug for all Seasons" was released in North America in September 2005 via Cleopatra Records. The original version of "A Drug for all Seasons" is also available in Asia on JVC Victor Entertainment and in Europe on Mascot Records.
F5 will perform at The Sets in Tempe, Arizona on June 13.
The band headlined the first Rage Brigade music festival on April 19 at Club Red in Tempe, Arizona. Fan-filmed video footage from the concert can be viewed below.
