F5: Former MEGADETH Bassist's New Band Sign With JVC
F5, the new Phoenix-based band featuring former MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson, ex-SICK SPEED vocalist Dale Steele, drummer David Small, and guitarists Steve Conley and John Davis, have inked a deal with JVC Records for the Asian release of their debut album. "We are in discussions with other labels now for release throughout the rest of the world and should have those finalized shortly," Ellefson said in a statement. The album will be the first major release under licencse from Ellefson Music Production.
F5, whose sound is being described as guitar-heavy melodic hard rock, recorded their debut album last year at a Phoenix-area studio with producer Ryan Greene, who had previously worked with Ellefson on the demos for MEGADETH's "Countdown to Extinction" album back in 1991. Songtitles set appear on the CD include "Fall to Me", "Bleeding", "What I Am" (EDIE BRICKELL AND THE NEW BOHEMIANS cover), "Hold Me Down" and "Dissidence".
