The Dreaming To Release New Album “Puppet” In November

The Dreaming (ex-Stabbing Westward/Murderdolls) have signed with Ephocal Artist Records/EMI and will release their new album “Puppet” through the label on November 01st. Speaking on the band, frontman Christopher Hall offered:

“After the death of Stabbing Westward, Johnny and I immediately put all our heart and soul into The Dreaming. We spent a lot of time working on our songs and live show in hopes that we would find the right team to get behind this band. After several years bouncing between managers and potential labels, we found a proper home with Epochal Artists Records. Epochal Artists Records understood what we were trying to do, they believe in our music and they are ready to work our album for the long haul. I am so proud to be the first release on E.A.R and so excited to be releasing ‘Puppet‘ with them at the helm.”

Attika 7 Working On Debut Album, New Music Video

More details have been revealed regarding the newly-revamped Attika 7. The outfit recently added former Biohazard vocalist/bassist Evan Seinfeld to their lineup. You can read more about the band and their current plans in the following newly issued press release:

ATTIKA 7 is a brand new force in the ever-evolving heavy metal world, featuring Evan Seinfeld, formerly of Biohazard, lead guitarist, songwriter and famed motorcycle builder Rusty Coones, bassist Tony Campos, founding member of Static X, who also currently performs in Soulfly, Prong, Possessed, Asesino and Ministry, and drummer Dustin Schoenhofer from Walls of Jericho and Bury Your Dead fame. ATTIKA 7 will be releasing their debut album later this year and are currently working on their first video for the single ‘Serial Killer’.

The band describes their lyrics and ideology as genuine and conveys a true American outlaw lifestyle. The ATTIKA 7 sound boasts very heavy, down-tuned and melodic harmonies, all the while boasting brutal hooks and grooves. The band draws from several musical influences, including their own additional projects, and has been compared to the likes of Black Sabbath, Metallica, Godsmack, Pantera, and White Zombie. The timeless no-frills songwriting of ATTIKA 7 is set apart from today’s homogenized, derivative copycat bands by so many things, but above all: authenticity.

The majority of the album was written by lifetime biker and ATTIKA 7 lead guitarist Rusty Coones while serving a seven-year federal prison sentence for a false conviction. Rather than rat on his friends, Rusty used the tension to teach himself how to play guitar in solitary confinement. The passion and street credibility in his lyrics and riffs speak to the underdogs of the world who will not break, will not bend, but stand against forever.

When Rusty called best friend and riding buddy Evan Seinfeld to check in on whether he knew of a singer who could join his band, Evan immediately jumped in without hesitation. Since then, Rusty and Evan have been writing, recording, living and breathing ATTIKA 7 and haven’t looked back.

Evan feels that ATTIKA 7 is the beginning of a new chapter. “As much as Biohazard has been the biggest part of my musical past and my main musical focus for more than two decades, it is time for me to do something new,” states Evan. “It is time for me to cement my musical future. I continue to stand behind the ideals projected in songs I wrote like ‘Down For Life’… and philosophies like standing up for what you believe in no matter what and sticking by your true friends and family to the end! I have so many creative ideas that needed a new home to flourish and I am so grateful for the opportunity to be a member of ATTIKA 7!”

“It is time for me to go on to something exciting and fresh to pursue my dreams and expand my horizons in a more positive situation for me,” adds Evan. “Biohazard is a band that I personally conjured and founded in 1987 and helped me to realize many of my dreams, see the world, and connect with many fans everywhere. I hope to keep the memory of Biohazard where it belongs, in a place of dignity and respect!”

The rebellious anthems of ATTIKA 7 speak volumes to the outlaws of society who refuse to compromise, refuse to fit in, refuse to play it safe, or refuse to sell out their beliefs, whatever they may be. ATTIKA 7 is your own personal soundtrack to your badass lifestyle, as you speed past the cops on your beefed up Harley with your middle finger in the air!”
