Check out “Mean To Me,” a brand new song from Mr. Big. The track is taken from the band’s ninth studio album, Defying Gravity, which will be released on July 7 via Frontiers Music Srl.

Defying Gravity deftly showcases that patented Mr. Big blend of crunch and melody, from the freight-train ride of opening cut “Open Your Eyes” to the harmony-laden wonderment of “Damn I’m in Love Again” to the grateful/wistful nostalgia of “1992” (recalling the days when the band was flying high atop the singles charts with their international No. 1 smash “To Be With You”) to the barnburning slide-blues closer, “Be Kind.” Overall, Defying Gravity is prime evidence that the only thing Mr. Big remains tethered to is their ongoing pursuit of achieving creative excellence.

Original members Eric Martin (lead vocals), Paul Gilbert (guitars), Billy Sheehan (bass) and Pat Torpey (drums) reunited with producer Kevin Elson (who was behind the boards for the band’s 1989 self-titled debut, 1991’s Lean Into It and 1993’s Bump Ahead) for an intensive six-day recording session in Los Angeles. While Torpey was unable to perform some of the songs on Defying Gravity due to a recent diagnosis of Parkinson’s disease, Matt Starr has been filling in for him on a majority of the album. Starr also been touring with the band for the past couple of years, with Torpey able to play a couple of songs at each stop.

“It was great to get back in the studio with our original producer, Kevin Elson,” says Gilbert. “Kevin recorded all of our original classic albums from the ’80s and ’90s, and we immediately felt that magic chemistry with him on Defying Gravity. We basically played live in the studio.

“Over the years, we’ve all had a chance to experiment with every recording technique possible, but it’s still always the best just to play together as a band. Most of my guitar solos were tracked live with the band. I’ve worked hard on my improvisation in the last few years, and it really paid off on this record… both melodically and on the face-melting stuff.”

“2017 is filling up quickly with tour dates all around the world,” proclaims Gilbert. “I can’t wait to play the new songs, and, of course, our favorites from the old days, like ‘Daddy, Brother, Lover, Little Boy’, ‘Just Take My Heart’, ‘Green Tinted Sixties Mind’, ‘Wild World’ and ‘To Be With You’.”

A Perfect Circle recently announced they had signed a worldwide recording deal with BMG and are in the studio working with producer Dave Sardy on the follow-up to 2004’s eMOTIVe.

“All At Once,” a new song from Pearl Jam, Soundgarden and Temple Of The Dog drummer Matt Cameron, can be streamed using the widget below. The track is taken from Cameron’s new solo album titled Cavedweller, which will be released on September 22.

The disc, which was completed before Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell passed away in May, features Matt on vocals and guitar, with drums by Mark Guiliana and bass by Tim Lefebvre, both of whom played on David Bowie’s Blackstar. “Mark’s performance on the title track was kind of mind-blowing,” Cameron told Rolling Stone. “That was kind of what I was hearing for a drum performance, so I just reached out through Instagram or Facebook and he got right back to me. Once he was on board, I had a little more confidence to complete the project.”

Butcher Babies Release Title Track From ‘Lilith’ Album

The band has announced that pre-orders for the new album are available now in both physical and digital formats.

Published

Hollywood-based Metal outfit Butcher Babies are set to release their third studio album, Lilith, on October 27 via Century Media Records.

Today, the band is thrilled to announce that pre-orders for the new album are available now in both physical and digital formats. Speaking about the unique pre-order packages for Lilith, vocalist Carla Harvey comments: “In anticipation of Lilith, we wanted to offer unique pre-sale bundles that are special to us. Not only do we have the album, limited edition vinyl, and t-shirts up for grabs, but we are also offering limited edition items curated by myself and Heidi. One such item is a gorgeous lyric book for Lilith featuring never before seen illustrations by me and graphics by Heidi. Another item is our signature Lilith pendant, a darling necklace handcrafted by us for our Butcher Army. You can find all the details on our pre-order site www.ButcherBabiesOfficial.com“.

Fans that pre-order Lilith will also receive the album’s title track as an Instant Grat. Speaking about the first offering from their new album, vocalist Heidi Shepherd states: “After a year of writing and recording we are thrilled with the growth and maturity of this album. Leading with our title track ‘Lilith,’ the artistic development within the band shines. We worked with producer, Steve Evetts to bring you the rawest form of Butcher Babies. No auto-tune, 100% real drums, real guitars, real bass, and an all out Butcher Babies assault on your senses. As we know in this industry, these standards are quickly replaced by machines and can eliminate what makes a band an actual band. We are so proud of the hard work and dedication that each member of our team put in to create this masterpiece.”
