Rock My Monkey recently conducted an interview with AM CONSPIRACY/ex-DROWNING POOL vocalist Jason "Gong" Jones. The chat is now available for streaming using the audio player below.
AM CONSPIRACY's self-titled debut album will be released on January 12, 2010 via Burnhill Union Records (a newly launched independent label from Chicago). A song from the CD, "Pictures", is available for streaming at this location. The track was mixed by Randy Staub, who has previously worked with METALLICA, NICKELBACK and ALICE IN CHAINS, among others.
"AM Conspiracy" was recorded earlier thie year at Belle City Sound studio in Racine, Wisconsin with producer Chris Djuricic (NOVEMBERS DOOM bassist).
Jones recently told AOL's Noisecreep about AM CONSPIRACY's upcoming CD, "It's 13 songs, all very different from each other. We try to mix it up and keep it going. We did it because a lot of records that have been coming out lately, in my opinion, sound like one long song. We try to steer away from that as far as possible. So it's got a good mixture of different emotions that hopefully it'll take people through. It has different kinds of music. Some stuff's real heavy. Some stuff's pretty light."
AM CONSPIRACY was recently rejoined by guitarist Rob DeHaven.
The band's lineup features core members Jones, Kenny Harrelson (bass) and Dean Andrews (drums) alongside guitarist Drew Burke.
In early 2007, AM CONSPIRACY signed with Corporate Punishment Records and began work on its first release with Rae DiLeo (FILTER, ARMY OF ANYONE). Shortly after signing, the band parted ways with the label and released a four-song EP entitled "Out of the Shallow End". Two of the tracks off the EP ("Absence" and "Far") were featured in regular rotation on XM Radio's SquiZZ, Europe's Kerrang!, and various FM stations across the U.S. "Right On Time" (another track off the EP) and "Welt" (previously unreleased) were part of the "WWE SmackDown vs. Raw 2008" soundtrack.
