RE:IGNITION: Debut Album To Feature Guest Appearances By MACHINE HEAD, 36 CRAZYFISTS Members

RE:IGNITION, the San Francisco Bay Area band featuring in its ranks SKINLAB members Steev Esquivel (guitar) and Snake (bass), are continuing work on their debut album, "Empty Heart, Loaded Gun", due later in the year via Corporate Punishment Records. Esquivel has issued the following update in the album's recording sessions:

"We know it's been awhile since the last update... but we're closer than ever to finishing our debut album, 'Empty Heart, Loaded Gun'!!

"It's been a long process, but one we are very proud of and totally confident our friends and fans will approve of. The songs have come coming out amazing: fat-ass bass and slammin drums, the guitars are huge and Dave's [Moore] vocals are coming out just straight-up ass-kickin'! We also managed to drag in some guests to lay down some tracks, with Phil Demmel [MACHINE HEAD, ex-VIO-LENCE] laying down his awesome lead on 'Bright Red' as well as our close freind Bobby Smith laying down some percussion. Brock Lindow [36 CRAZYFISTS] will be coming into the studio next week to do lend his trademark 'goat boy' vocals alongside pianist Rich Hubbard on the song tentatively titled 'Dark Nevada'.

"We are stoked to have such cool people take part in this project. It definitely means a lot and something we're all sure to enjoy years from now!!!

"OK, enough of the golden glitter... Sadly enough, we have decided to carry on and finish the recording process without Kent Matcke, and track the rest of the guitar/vocals ourselves. Which means Snake will be overlooking all recording sessions as well our engineer Duane Ramos, who will be handling the rest of the recording duties. Our good freind Chris Hanson will be handle all ProTool 'editing sessions' to help clean things up before it's off to be mixed.

"Speaking of mixing... We are super-stoked to announce that we have decided to go with Peter Rotcha to mix the album. Peter was recommended to us from SEEMLESS drummer Derrick, who sent us an MP3 of one of their new tunes. After a few listens and a couple phone conversations, we're in aggrement that Peter would be the perfect guy for the job!! .

"Oh, yeah ... Did we mention dates for our first tour is being set up as you read this? Yup, that's right, our homies in 36 CRAZYFISTS have been cool enough to invite us out with 'em in July."
