AM Conspiracy Set New Album Release
Label partner and (ex-Soil) Dirge Within guitarist, Shaun Glass, says of the upcoming release "We at Burnhill Union are really excited to be putting this record out. I feel AM Conspiracy is truly what a rock band is about, lead vocalist Jason Gong Jones has a voice that is meant for the big arena sound. the album has so many strong tracks that it is hard for the listener to stop after a few tracks in, you will find it on repeated plays. this is a rock fans wet dream!
AM Conspiracy features frontman and lead vocalist, Jason "Gong" Jones, formerly of the band Drowning Pool. After teaming up with guitarists Drew Burke and Rob DeHaven drummer Dean Andrews and bassist Kenny Harrelson, Jones was ready to exorcise his demons in song. "This is the record we always wanted to make; the way we always wanted to make it. It is what rock and roll should be: 5 guys in a room making honest, unadulterated music with no regard to the corporate machine," Jones says.
From rock ballads like "Down" to hard-chargers like "Welt," A.M. Conspiracy's songs create a variety of moods, from profound sincerity to riotous mayhem. Drew explains, "One minute Gong's a little vulnerable and the next he's kicking your teeth in. One minute Dean and Kenny are laying down light melodic ideas and the next they're driving a mosh pit. That is how it works." The first single off the album, "Pictures" was mixed by Randy Staub (Metallica, Stone Sour, Hinder).
The band set out to create an album that was extremely diverse – something that didn't feature 13 versions of the same song – and came up with truly diverse tracks, each with its own signature grit and character. To back up the release on Burnhill Union Records, Gong explains that the plan is to "tour as much as we can and win the people over." To that end, the band head out on a headline run starting January 8th in Orlando,FL, taking them to February with dates to be announced soon.
