Envision Radio Networks' "Hangar 19" recently conducted an interview with IRON MAIDEN and PRIMAL ROCK REBELLION guitarist Adrian Smith. You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.

PRIMAL ROCK REBELLION, the project featuring Smith and SIKTH frontman Mikee Goodman, released its debut album, "Awoken Broken", in the U.S. on April 17 and in Europe on February 27 through Spinefarm Records. The CD was produced by Adrian and Mikee, and mixed by Simon Hanhart, whose previous credits include everyone from TIN MACHINE to SAXON. The album features 12 tracks top to tail, and it is available on digipak CD, digital download and double colored vinyl in gatefold sleeve.

With MAIDEN's reputation having been forged through their ability to blend well-crafted vocal and guitar melodies with the sheer brute force of prime heavy metal, it will surely come as no surprise that the debut PRIMAL ROCK REBELLION album, "Awoken Broken", delivers fully on both fronts, but with an extra nod to the underground, the alternative and the downright edgy — an aspect of the music that is enhanced from start to finish by the presence of one-time SIKTH frontman / lyric-writer/spoken-word maestro, Mikee Goodman.
