Toronto-based FAMOUS UNDERGROUND are currently in the studio laying down tracks for their next album. The band has decided to do a studio version of their MEGADETH / BOB MARLEY mash-up of 'Peace Sells...But Who's Buying' and 'Get Up Stand Up'. A clip of Walsh performing a guide vocal for the bed tracks in the control room off the floor is available below, along with fan-filmed live footage of the song.
BW&BK was given a preview of some of the new material stamped for the next Famous Underground album, and we can tell you it's considerably heavier than what fans and naysayers are expecting.
Famous Underground recently signed a management deal with Germany’s Rock N Growl Management. The group consists of the following musicians: Nick Walsh – vocals, guitars, Laurie-Anne Green – bass, Rick Corvese – guitars, Darren Boyd – guitars, and Desche Sparboom – drums.
Famous Underground haven't ever strayed from their life-long dedication to hard rock and metal music and lock the power and energy into 4-minute songs with great hooks. Famous Underground's sound and music is edgy, melodic and hookybringing a paradigm shift to the arena of rock. It’s been said, that they have created something fresh and exciting in an otherwise stagnated genre.
BraveWords.com scribe Carl Begai describes the new recording as follows: “It’s a darker if-METALLICA-were-GUNS N' ROSES direction with this brand new album."
Nick says of the signing: "We have been building relations with Axel for the past year and we all felt that the timing was right for us to finally seal the deal. We are totally pumped to have his passion and knowledge within the F.U. family."
"We have never had the right opportunity before to bring our brand of metal to the European market", Laurie-Anne states. "The anticipation of playing on the European stages is very exciting to us and we are ready to come over and rock out."
Rock N Growl and Famous Underground are currently shopping the brand new self-titled album, to find a suitable record deal very soon. A video trailer for the upcoming epic video, ‘Dead Weight‘, can be viewed below.
