RIKETS To Release Debut EP In November

RIKETS, the new metal "supergroup" made up of former members of SWITCHED, THE BEDROOM ALL-STARS, and ERASE THE GREY, will be releasing their debut EP, entitled "Anything for the Devil", via the Internet on November 23. The six-song EP was produced by Ben Schigel (CHIMAIRA, SWITCHED) and mixed by Logan Mader (MACHINE HEAD, SOULFLY, MEDICATION). The tracks "Useless" and "Bitter Words" from the EP can currently be listened to here. Other tracks set to appear on the EP are "Blister", "Hollywood", "Glory Girl", and "Anything for the Devil". The EP will hit traditional stores in early 2005. Currently RIKETS are making plans to shoot a video for the track "Useless", as well as mapping out a tour to take place later this year.

Beginning October 25, the EP will be available for pre-order from Corporate Punishment Records' web site. As an added bonus to pre-order, all EPs ordered before November 23 will be signed by the entire band and include Internet links to exclusive RICKETS downloads.
