ANEW REVOLUTION, the Austin-based foursome which has been steadily building a name for itself within the metal community, has posted two songs from its upcoming debut album, "Rise", on the band's MySpace page. Check out the tracks "Done" and "N.M.E." at this location.
"Rise" is scheduled for releease on April 15 via Koch Records. An eleven-track album which includes the anthemic call-to-arms title track, "Rise", the introspective song "Let Go" and a cover of NEW ORDER's "True Faith", has already turned heads at radio, with 101X's music director Toby Ryan saying, "ANEW REVOLUTION combined compelling and intelligent music, with hooks bigger than Tom Cruise's psychosis." Another early supporter is WJJO, whose music director Ozz added, "ANR constantly get requested on JJO and they’ve proven to be a viable headliner in this market. These guys are for real."
Track listing for the Mudrock-produced (AVENGED SEVENFOLD, GODSMACK) album is as follows:
05. Saddest Song
06. California Burning
07. True Faith
08. Let Go
11. Love To Hate
The band is no stranger to rock fans, having already performed over 250 dates since the group's inception including a run on the Jagermeister Summer of Sin Tour as well as slots with SEVENDUST, STAIND, DOPE and TRAPT.
ANEW REVOLUTION released a self-titled EP soon after forming, selling out all five thousand copies they printed at shows and off of the Internet. The five-track release served as a strong introduction to fans and paved the way to their relationship with Koch Records. Scott Givens, Vice President of Metal for Koch Records, took notice of the quartet's talent, work ethic and grassroots approach. He stated, "Having followed the band since their inception, I have watched them become a top notch live act whose songs can compete with anyone in the genre. It is a pleasure to welcome them to the ever growing Koch metal family.
ANEW REVOLUTION will support OTEP in the U.S. beginning March 30.
