FLAW Frontman CHRIS VOLZ Hits The Road

FLAW singer Chris Volz (formerly of FIVE.BOLT.MAIN) has just kicked off a tour in support of his solo album, "Redemption", which was released on September 11 on Rock Ridge Music. Joining Volz in his touring band are Taz Marazz on drums, Johnny Pisano on bass, and Jack Frost (SEVEN WITCHES, ex-SAVATAGE on guitar.

Volz previously stated about "Redemption", "The lyrics on this record are very personal. I don't sing about anything I haven't felt or don't mean. Personally, this record was my turn to grab the reins. This album is, with no offense meant to any of my former bandmates, the chance to do everything I've always wanted to do."

The recording process took two weeks, the fastest recording experience of Volz's career. "I have never recorded that expediently," he said. "The musicians we worked with were extremely professional and productive. It all flowed very well and everything fell right into place."

Joining Volz in the studio were Matt Chiaravalle (KITTIE, CROSSBREED, WARREN ZEVON) and Jason Spiewak (FIVE.BOLT.MAIN) in both production capacity and as players on the record. Also performing on the record were Danny Schuler (BIOHAZARD), Chris Vitali (ORANGE 9MM), Johnny Pisano (RYAN ADAMS, MARKY RAMONE, JESSE MALIN), and Rich Smalley (THE NIGHTRATS, LOOKER).
