New Tantric Album Delayed

(ABC) Tantric's fourth album, Mind Control, will now be released August 4 on the Silent Majority Group label (through Warner Music Group's Independent Label Group). Originally scheduled for July 21, the album was produced by Brett Hestla (Creed, Framing Hanley, Dark New Day) and is the follow-up to 2008's THE END BEGINS, which produced the Top Five Rock hit, "Down and Out."

The album's first single, "Mind Control," is currently in the Top 40 on the Mediabase Active Rock chart after only two weeks, garnering spins on over 50 radio stations nationwide including Phoenix, Detroit, Dallas, Houston and Chicago, and including Sirius XM's "Octane" channel.

A video for the track was recently shot in Nashville with director Mason Dixon (who directed the video for "Down and Out") and will be debuting nationwide via MTV2's Unleashed on August 4.

In touring news, the band--Hugo Ferreira (lead vocals, keyboards), Joe Pessia (guitars), Erik Leonhardt (bass and vocals), Marcus Ratzenboeck (violin) and Richie Monica (drums)—is gearing up for a U.S. tour with their special guests Aranda and Vayden starting July 31 in Syracuse, which will also include various radio station festivals along the route.
