GUNFIRE 76, the new project featuring former MURDERDOLLS frontman Wednesday 13, has tapped Brent Clawson to mix its debut album.Best known as the bassist for BULLETS AND OCTANE, Brent has spent many years in the studio working as a producer, engineer and mixer. He produced, mixed and engineered "Dirty Angel" from Nick Oliveri's band THE KNIVES; engineered and mixed GUTTERMOUTH's "Eat Your Face"; and produced, engineered and mixed the last two CDs from BULLETS AND OCTANE — "Song For The Underdog" and "Bullets and Octane" — which are being re-released as a double-CD this October. Although GUNFIRE 76's debut album was originally set to be recorded in Los Angeles with producer Howard Willing, setbacks and conflicting schedules have resulted in a change of plans and the CD is now being tracked with studio musicians in Charlotte, North Carolina. So far, seven of the 12 songs have been completed. According to a press release, the album — which will feature material written by Wednesday and Todd Youth (DANZIG, D-GENERATION, THE CHELSEA SMILES) — will have "more of a rock sound." "GUNFIRE 76 will be my extension into the rock world," says Wednesday. "After touring with THE CHELSEA SMILES, Todd Youth and I would find ourselves discussing the bands we grew up on and decided to put a band together that fits more of the rock and roll sound of KISS, DEAD BOYS, NEW YORK DOLLS, THE STOOGES and the in-your-face rock n roll sound. Not being signed to a record label allows me to create new projects and continue growing as an artist." No official band members have yet been selected. GUNFIRE 76 will spend November touring the U.S. and December touring the U.K., with BULLETS AND OCTANE acting as main support. GUNFIRE 76's debut will be self-released in the U.S. and Wednesday will partner with a company for overseas distribution. For more information, visit www.myspace.com/gunfire76.
