Dredg Announce The Pariah, The Parrot, The Delusion

(PR) Aggressive and beautiful, visceral and thoughtful, Dredg are set to release their highly anticipated release, The Pariah, The Parrot, The Delusion on their own Ohlone Recordings through Warner Music Group's Independent Label Group June 9, 2009. The album will be available online and in stores with a limited edition disc featuring alternate artwork and a vinyl recording also to be offered.

In support of The Pariah, Dredg will headline a special North American club tour with Torche, kicking off March 15th in Iowa City before taking the country by storm this summer. Drawing massively as an underground favorite, Dredg has toured extensively, headlining multiple tours as well as supporting some of the most respected and popular of their peers.

Produced by Matt Radosevich, The Pariah marks the Bay Area band's fourth full-length studio album. On this release, Gavin Hayes (vocals, guitar), Drew Roulette (bass, moog, speak & spell, samples), Mark Engles (guitar) and Dino Campanella (drums, keys) combine to create equal parts punk aggression and metallic complexity - a sound that brings together the artistic instrumentation, haunting vocals and emotional intensity that is Dredg.

Though driven by rhythms and guitars, The Pariah is far from a typical rock album. Inspired in part by Salman Rushdie's essay "Imagine There's No Heaven: A Letter to the 6 Billionth Citizen," Dredg capture the madness of the modern world, particularly its battles over religion and science, within a musical missive to the future. Fittingly, The Pariah is packaged and constructed like a letter, its songs and instrumental interludes connected by eerie, evocative Wurlitzer piano-and-voice segments. Diverse and textured, these intentional imperfections allow some of Dredg's mellowest recorded moments to mingle with some of their harshest.
