THE COMPANY BAND, featuring vocalist Neil Fallon, drummer Jess Margera, guitarists Jim Rota and Dave Bone with bassist Brad Davis, today confirm November 10 as the release date of their full length debut. The self-titled album was recorded in Los Angeles earlier this year and teamed the band with renowned producer/engineer Andrew Alekel (Queens Of The Stone Age, Foo Fighters). The band will release in advance to the album a special digital-only single featuring the album track "It's A Confusing World" with an exclusive cover of BTO's "Not Fragile". The single will be available for download via various DSP's in early October.
"It was pretty awesome to get everyone into a studio together and make this record," reveals Jess Margera of the album's recording process. "I never thought it would happen given that everyone has insanely crazy touring schedules. But sure enough the results turned out amazing. It was a strange reality for me, personally, as I am a huge fan of Fireball Ministry, Clutch and Fu Manchu. So to be in a room playing drums with members of all those bands was kind of unbelievable."
"It's not very often that one gets to write and play music with people that they respect as well consider family," says Jim Rota. "This band is a dream come true."Good times and great friends made this music that we are proud to bring you," adds Dave Bone. "So pick up your balls and load up your cannons for the 21 gun salute!"
Founded by Margera (CKY) with Rota (Fireball Ministry) and Dave Bone in 2006, THE COMPANY BAND originally got together to jam among friends. Their initial recordings were laid down for the band’s 2008's mini-album 'Sign Here, Here, And Here'. It quickly sold through its limited pressing and has continued to be a popular digital seller via CDBaby.com and others since release. Restricted Release has now pressed it on a special 10-inch available now exclusively through the label's Amazon store. The vinyl pressing features exclusive artwork and is hand-numbered; limited to 1000 copies.
