THE A.K.A.S To Release 'Everybody Make Some Noise!' In March

Metropolis recording artists THE A.K.A.S have just announced a full slate of live dates on The All-American Massacre Tour. They will join WEDNESDAY 13, THE VINCENT BLACK SHADOW, and CREATURE FEATURE on the road. The band will distribute pre-order download cards (which includes a free download of their first single "Dead Flowers Forever") to fans enabling them to be the first to get their hands on the band's upcoming album "Everybody Make Some Noise!", due on March 18.

According to a press release, "Everybody Make Some Noise!" is "a 12-track tour de force of fist-pumping anthems that would make the DEAD KENNEDYS proud. And in fact, head DK Jello Biafra felt the band so honor-worthy that he bestowed a spoken word, carny-styled intro to 'Everything Is a Commercial'." Other guests include JT Woodruff from HAWTHORNE HEIGHTS and Chris #2 from ANTI-FLAG.

"We have a really bizarre set of guest appearances on our record," says vocalist Mike Ski. "Having three people that would never be in the same room together appear on our album and each bring something incredible to the songs is a proud moment. From the breathtaking melody of JT, the angry snarl of Chris #2, to the unsettling narrative by Jello, it's enough to make everyone from a 15-year-old pop girl to a 30-year-old punk rocker smile."

Produced by Alex Newport (AT THE DRIVE-IN, THE MARS VOLTA) in a new studio that THE A.K.A.S literally helped put together ("We gutted, scraped, painted, hammered, and hauled enough to satisfy the most merciless of cynics. Doesn't everybody love to see a band dehumanized?!"), "Everybody Make Some Noise!" is a true testament of a band finding their voice through adversity, poverty and the excruciating toll that band life extolls.

"This album is special in that it represents a true adventure and journey," Mike says. "While other bands are busy writing music just to get laid, paid, or played on the radio, we challenged ourselves and everyone else to be fearless, fierce, and have fun... finding your voice and using it to live out loud."
