Illbreak Debut Today

(i.e. marketing) It isn't just every day that a band wins a regional competition with a recording contract as the grand prize. But Atlanta based alternative rock band Illbreak did just that with Imprint Records' "Search for the Next Rock Star" contest held last summer. Imprint Records is the label owned and operated by 3 Doors Down bassist Todd Harrell and his wife, Jennifer. After sifting through over a thousand entries for the competition spanning six states and representing 11 rock radio stations, 11 finalists were selected and Illbreak was the unanimous choice selected by the panel of judges made up of several industry veterans, including major label A&R reps.

Illbreak's debut on Imprint Records, The Flood, is due for release on September 6. The Flood was produced by an impressive team consisting of Chris Henderson (guitarist for 3 Doors Down), Paul Ebersold (producer of 3 Doors Down's The Better Life) and Geoff Ott (engineer on 3 Doors Down's Away >From the Sun). The album's first single, "How It Feels," is an emotive track balancing slick production, walls of guitars and the powerful voice of lead singer Gareth Asher, and one that is sure to put this new band on everyone's radar in a hurry. Other standout tracks are the haunting and melodic "Wake" and "Carry The Light," the riff-laden "Flesh & Bone" and the breezy "Safe." - Click here for the Full Story
