CKY has completed mixing its fourth album, entitled "Carver City", for a May 19 release via Roadrunner Records. As with all their previous efforts, "Carver City" was produced by the band's guitarist Chad I Ginsburg. The CD was recorded at Studio CIG in the band's home state of Pennsylvania and mixed by Ginsburg and Phil Nicolo at Studio 4 in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania. Some of the eleven tracks set to appear are "Hellions On Parade", "The Boardwalk Body", "…And She Never Returned", "Karmaworks" and "Woe Is Me".
Singer Deron Miller comments: "Literally all the things that have been keeping CKY strong since our last album — the undying hardcore support of our fans, our unorthodox musical approach and a brand new partnership with Roadrunner Records — have restored an enthusiasm within our band that has never been this extreme. Sobriety, hard work, patching up inner turmoil and a love for what we do has undoubtedly made this the most collaborative and focused CKY effort to date."
Ginsburg concurs: "The album is more inventive and more layered than our past releases, with the most melodies, textures and riffs of any CKY album. It is by far the most inspired album we have ever made."
According to Miller, "Carver City" carries with it a "dark summer vacation vibe," nostalgic of the band members' childhood trips to the East Coast beaches. "The fabled town of Carver City has a history of bad luck and misfortune, all the while giving the impression that it's a pleasant family getaway. Much like CKY's town of Hellview, Carver City's events are depicted in the songs, with story lines coming from real-life events."
CKY is planning to tour in support of its Roadrunner debut in the spring.
