Apocalyptic Lovers release EP mixed by legendary producer Michael Wagener.
The Apocalyptic Lovers released a new 8-song EP on National Record Store Day USA – April 16, 2016. Redemption Vol. 1 was mixed by legendary producer, Michael Wagener (Ozzy, Metallica, Skid Row, Dokken, Motley Crue, Poison, Alice Cooper, and Extreme to name a few) and is reminiscent of the days when arena rock and music videos ruled the airwaves.
The band (George Allan – Bass, Dave Hope – Drums, Robert Kane – Vocals, Sean Magee – Guitar, Mike Nagy – Bass – yes two bassists) is very optimistic that this collaboration could be what finally gets them over the wretched music-business hump.
When the band originally formed years ago, most of the members were from Ohio(U.S.A.). The five members now populate great cities in AZ, OH, PA, RI & VA, but this has not deterred them from writing, recording, marketing, and planning world domination one fan at a time.
The EP was recorded at Mindrocket Studio in Pennsylvania and then mixed over 12 days in Nashville with Michael Wagener at his Wireworld Studio. The band released videos for Change of Frequency on March 8th and Killing For A Living on May 13th. The video for Killing For A Living is a tribute to the early Iron Maiden video for Run to the Hills. The Independent release of Redemption Vol I is available worldwide via download from iTunes, Amazon & Google Play. The compact disc is available worldwide per Amazon & a very limited version is available for purchase & shipping via The Record Connection in Niles, Ohio USA. The band is currently booking shows & seeking a label home for Redemption Vol I & their 9 future releases at this time.
About Apocalyptic Lovers:
Originally based out of Youngstown, Ohio, The Apocalyptic Lovers (formerly Love And War) played regionally, and made a trip to LA in 1994. The LA excursion led to a mention in Entertainment Weekly Magazine (USA), which snowballed into two distribution deals overseas at the time.
The band plans to release a 10-EP collection of updated vintage material with a sprinkling of brand new songs. The first of the collection, Redemption Vol. I, is complete and available worldwide. The band has material ready for Volume II and plans on hitting the studio shortly after the completion of any committed tour dates. Judging by the amount a material they have ready to go, fans will not have to wait a Def Leppard’s length in time for new material from the Apocalyptic Lovers.
