Metal Mind Productions has announced the release of a brand new album by a Polish rock/metal band COCHISE. The album entitled 118 is scheduled for release on February, 24th 2014 in Europe and March, 11th 2014 in the USA (via MVD).
The band was formed in 2004 in Bia?ystok, Poland. The current line-up includes: Pawe? Ma?aszy?ski on vocals (he is also a very successful movie actor in Poland), Wojtek Napora on the guitar, Radek Jasi?ski on the bass guitar and Czarek Mielko on the drums. So far, they have released a demo “9” plus two full-length releases - Still Alive in 2010 and Back to Beginning in 2012.
According to a press release, on their studio albums, Cochise perfectly blend energetic songs enriched with heavy, almost metal sounds with more delicate, atmospheric ones. And that’s exactly what you can expect from their forthcoming release 118. The new material will also prove that they can remain true to the rock tradition and still enrich their sound with fresh and original ideas.
"Coincidentally, the new album marks the band's tenth anniversary," Radek Jasi?ski, the band’s bassist, comments. “It will be our third release and, on the one hand, it will show how far we have gone since our very beginning and, on the other, it will prove that, despite the changing music trends, it’s still us - the same musicians who still love to play rock music”.
Pawe? Ma?aszy?ski, the vocalist, reveals the meaning of the album’s title: "Due to my work as an actor, I spent the last two years of my life travelling. Different cities, different hotels, where I can also work on new music. For some reason, the hotel rooms I stayed in were al-ways number 118. For me, the room 118 means the exchange of energy. It’s really important who you're sharing it with. It’s a claustrophobic, intimate place, filled with emotional waste - which you could compare to a peeling wallpaper - that has seen everything our minds cannot understand. It’s a room where we sleep with our eyes wide open, hidden in the corners behind spider webs of doubts. It’s a rare type of insanity… still cherished and still wanted… buried behind the door to the room 118."
