DC4 — the Los Angeles-based hard rock band featuring Rowan Robertson (ex-DIO) alongside brothers Jeff Duncan (ARMORED SAINT, ODIN) on lead vocals and guitar, Shawn Duncan (ODIN) on drums and Matt Duncan on bass — will enter the studio in December/January to begin recording its new album for a tentative late spring release. The follow-up to 2007's "Explode" will be produced by Bill Metoyer, who has previously worked with SLAYER, CORROSION OF CONFORMITY and FATES WARNING, among many others.Commented the group: "We are about seven songs [into the songwriting process] so far! The songs are rockin and we are heavy on the guitars in this one! Honestly, we can't wait for everyone to hear it!" DC4 will debut some of its new material on November 7 at the Whisky A Go Go in Hollywood, California. The group last year spent time at Skull Seven studio with producers Metoyer and Joey Vera (ARMORED SAINT, FATES WARNING) recording additional tracks for the re-release of "Explode". The new tracks, titled "People" and "25 To Life", were added to the CD along with a video and new artwork for an "enhanced" package. Jeff Duncan and Shawn Duncan — of ODIN fame and notable for their appearances in "The Decline Of Western Civilization - The Metal Years" — formed DC4 with brother Matt Duncan in 1995 and released their debut EP, "Mood Swings", produced by Joe Floyd (BRUCE DICKINSON, WARRIOR). In 2001, DC4 released "Volume One", which was produced by Joey Vera. Robertson, who is best known for his dynamic guitar wizardry on DIO's "Lock Up The Wolves" album, joined the ranks in 2006.
