Many artists struggle to establish their musical identity; Nick Oliveri has forged his through a long career of hard work and full command over his craft and his music including stints in KYUSS, QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, MONDO GENERATOR and, more recently, BL'AST and Dean Ween's MOISTBOYZ. His new album, "Leave Me Alone", is a powerfully captivating proof of his multi-talented personality. A track from the effort, "Human Cannonball Explodes" (featuring lead guitar by Dean Ween), can be streamed below.
Recorded at Thunder Underground Studios in Palm Springs, California, "Leave Me Alone" features Oliveri on all instruments, including drums, guitar, bass and vocals. It includes guitar solos from special guests Phil Campbell from MOTÖRHEAD, Dean Ween (a.k.a. Mickey Moist) from WEEN and MOISTBOYZ, Stephen Haas from MOISTBOYZ, Mike Pygmie from MONDO GENERATOR, Marc Diamond from THE DWARVES and Bruno Fevery from KYUSS LIVES! and VISTA CHINO. There's also a guest vocal by Blag Dahlia from THE DWARVES.
Produced by Oliveri himself, recorded by Harper Hug and Trevor Whatever, and mixed by Mathias Schneeberger, "Leave Me Alone" will be released on Schnitzel Records this September.
Schnitzel is home to WEEN, Alain Johannes, Dean Fertita (HELLO=FIRE), MOISTBOYZ and THE MOONS.
Oliveri will spend most of 2014 on the road playing both acoustic shows and touring with his new band, UNCONTROLLABLE.
