RISE TO ADDICTION Putting Finishing Touches On Debut Album

July 20, 2006

British rockers RISE TO ADDICTION, who feature in their ranks former BLAZE members John Slater (guitar) and Steve Wray (guitar),are currently putting the finishing touches on their debut album. With the music now recorded, all that remains is for Leigh Oates to add his vocals and for mixing to be completed. A total of 12 songs have been laid down for the album which has a working title of "All Human Life". The band are once again working with Andy Sneap (MACHINE HEAD, KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, TRIVIUM) who produced last year's self-titled EP. Discussions with labels are underway for the album's release

Commenting on their approach to recording, guitarist John Slater said, "I suppose this is how DEF LEPPARD felt when recording 'Hysteria'. I am, of course, referring to freedom' in the studio. Usually we write the songs and rehearse them over and over again until we can hold full conversations whilst playing them. Then record them. This time was different. We wrote the songs, rehearsed them, gigged some of them, tweaked them, demoed them and finally tweaked them once more. It's been a really fun way to make music. We're all really pleased with the results. Unlike 'Hysteria', we've no intentions of layering 18 vocal overdubs — we haven't got time. We had no intentions of spending this long in the studio but hey, it's like going to your favourite pub. Until the landlord rings that bell you'll keep drinking and right now it feels like 1:15 a.m. Lock-in!"
