SLAVE TO THE SYSTEM Finish Recording 10 New Songs For Sophomore Album

SLAVE TO THE SYSTEM, the band featuring Scott Rockenfield (drums, QUEENSRŸCHE), Kelly Gray (guitar, ex-QUEENSRŸCHE), Damon Johnson (guitar/vocals, BROTHER CANE), have issued the following statement:

"A huge word of thanks to everyone that attended the shows in the month of April (as well as February). The band had a great time getting to talk to many of you in person and are continuing to put more show dates together for the summer, schedules permitting. As has been rumored, the band has 10 new songs already recorded and mixed for the follow-up to the debut album, and the band hopes to have a sophomore release out within the next 8 to 12 months. More news and updates coming, and be looking for a 'Slave to the System Store' at with good deals on t-shirts, pictures, CDs, and other paraphenalia. Finally, don't forget to continue to request STTS at rock radio. The band made a great impact with 'Stigmata' and want to build on that momentum as they continue forward."

SLAVE TO THE SYSTEM's debut album came in February, but the band haven't been able to announce a full tour because of their other commitments — singer-guitarist Damon Johnson is a member of ALICE COOPER's band, and drummer Scott Rockenfield has a busy year ahead of him with QUEENSRŸCHE.

QUEENSRŸCHE has announced shows from late August through mid-October in support of their new album "Operation: Mindcrime II", which comes out April 4.

COOPER's got a Canadian run mapped out from May 1 through May 17, with U.S. dates penciled in for June.
