ILL NINO: 'The Record Is Finally Done And We Couldn't Be Happier'

ILL NINO has issued the following update:

"Just wanted to let everyone know what's going with our new album 'Enigma'. The record is finally done and we couldn't be happier. All of us feel that 'Enigma' is by far our best effort to date; it fuckin' rules.

"After five months of working on 'Enigma', three weeks in the U.K. co-headline tour with DROWNING POOL, and a six-week, 14-country, European festival tour, covering Download, Lorca Rock, Fields of Rock, Nova Rock, Greenfield, Metaltown, With Full Force, Vina Rock, and the Coca Cola Festival, we've decided to take eight weeks off to be with family, and friends. But don't worry — ILL NINO will be back on the road early September in full support of 'Enigma'. We cannot wait to play these songs for everyone live!! Also the first video for 'The Alibi of Tyrants' will be around mid-August."

"Enigma" (Cement Shoes Records) has reportedly had its release date pushed back to September 25 from the previously announced July 17. A track from the CD, entitled "Alibi of Tyrants", is available for streaming on the band's MySpace page.

ILL NINO's last release was the "The Undercover Sessions" EP, which came out in November through Cement Shoes. The CD was comprised of three of ILL NINO's favorite cover songs from bands they loved growing up as fans, and two brand new songs — all overseen by legendary producer Andy Johns (LED ZEPPELIN, VAN HALEN, OZZY OSBOURNE), Dave Chavarri and Eddie Wohl (ANTHRAX, 36 CRAZYFISTS, MACHINE HEAD). The EP was the band's first release through Cement Shoes following their split with the Roadrunner label.
