AM CONSPIRACY, the new Florida-based project featuring former DROWNING POOL vocalist Jason "Gong" Jones, has had the release date of its as-yet-untitled debut record pushed back to August 7 from the previously announced July 17. An as-yet-unspecified single will arrive on June 5.
As previously reported, AM CONSPIRACY recently posted a new track, entitled "Far", on its MySpace page.
Commented the group: "[We are] so thrilled to introduce our single 'Far'. Please don't expect it to be as heavy as our other demo songs. We have extremely heavy tracks that will be included on the CD, but we want to show you guys our versitility! Believe [us], we still rock hard! Jason has progressed into a multi-faceted vocalist and songwriter! The band has not comprimised themselves in any way for anybody. This is the music we all wanted to create and give to you! No bullshit, no lies, it's all from the heart and we hope you feel it too!"
AM CONSPIRACY recently inked a deal with Corporate Punishment Records. The group's debut CD was produced by Rae Dileo (FILTER, ARMY OF ANYONE).
Jones officially joined DROWNING POOL in 2003 following the death of previous frontman Dave Williams. Jason went on to sing on the band's sophomore album, "Desensitized", which was released in April 2004 via Wind-Up Records, and spent most of the following year touring with the group in support of the CD.
A relative unknown prior to joining DROWNING POOL, Gong had previously auditioned for the then-vacant singer slot in SEPULTURA during the Brazilian band's vocalist search in 1997 and was briefly a member of CHOP SHOP, the short-lived Los Angeles group led by ex-MANHOLE guitarist Scott Ueda. Prior to joining DROWNING POOL, Jones was linked with a project formed by ex-FEAR FACTORY guitarist Dino Cazares (with whom he recorded a three-song demo) and was believed to be involved with FIVE-O-CLOCK, a group featuring former AMEN guitarist Sonny Mayo, ex-WHITE ZOMBIE drummer Ivan De Prume and bassist Stevo Bruno.
