JAM PAIN SOCIETY's 'Black Light Messiah' To Receive U.S. Release

Locomotive Records will unleash JAM PAIN SOCIETY's "Black Light Messiah" in the U.S. on August 12. This North Carolina band, known for its theatrical stage presentation, counterpoints aggression and melody with soulful vocals.

Self-produced by guitarist/composer Chris Hill (who cites KISS, LED ZEPPELIN, VAN HALEN, and PARLIAMENT/FUNKADELIC as major influences), these 12 tracks bristle with melodic invention, heavy guitar riffs and huge hooks.

The woman behind the mic for this SOCIETY is Leah Kirby. Raised on a steady diet of AC/DC, BLACK SABBATH, JUDAS PRIEST and Motown, Leah cites Aretha Franklin and Ronnie James Dio as vocal influences. She is definitely not your typical rock frontwoman!

Nick Campbell's the man behind the big drum kit, technically gifted, intricate, and raised in the Neil Peart (RUSH) and Danny Carey (TOOL) school of bombast.

The bottom is filled out in its own spectacular JAM PAIN way with two bassists! Matt Frederick (from a band, DRILL 187, that Hill produced) and Greg Putnam (he of the six-string bass) puts the prog into the proceedings. DREAM THEATER enthusiasts both, they combine for one voice…and in so doing, make this JAM totally unique!
