For Immediate Release Date: May 16, 2003 The following is what us nerds would call a press release. The topic, 36 Crazyfists. And it reads like this: ALASKAN ROCK RETURNS! 36 CRAZYFISTS RETURNS TO THE STUDIO TO RECORD THE FOLLOW UP TO BITTERNESS THE STAR NABS JAMES WISNER (DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL, FURTHER SEEMS FOREVER) TO PRODUCE THE EFFORT, ANDY SNEAP (KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, ARCH ENEMY) TO MIX New York, NY: Are you in desperate need of a sonic pummeling? Well, 36 CRAZYFISTS, who take their name from a Jackie Chan flick, will be more than happy to oblige your desires with their upcoming sophomore release for Roadrunner Records. The band is currently holed up in Fort Lauderdale, FL, considerably warmer than their hometown of Anchorage, working on new material for the follow up to last year's emotionally jarring Bitterness The Star. The 'Fists have tapped James Wisner, who has worked with post-hardcore acts such as Dashboard Confessional and Further Seems Forever, to produce the effort. Veteran Andy Sneap (Killswitch Engage, Arch Enemy and Opeth) has been recruited to mix. The band begins tracking on May 28 and hopes to complete the album by the end of July to ready for a Fall release. For those of you who are dying to know, some tentative song titles are “Bloodwork” and “At The End Of August.” 36 CRAZYFISTS singer Brock Lindow says, “This sophomore effort will definitely be a more aggressive and dynamic feeling record.” The band feels they are writing some of their heaviest material ever, while still maintaining the emotional vocal melodies that hooked fans on their first record. Stay tuned for more studio updates on the band and their upcoming release.
