NARCOTIC WASTELAND, Fronted by Dallas Toler-Wade (ex-Nile), to Release New Album “Delirium Tremens”!

NARCOTIC WASTELAND, the full-time project of former Nile frontman Dallas Toler-Wade, is set to release a brand new, full-length album, entitled Delirium Tremens, on October 13, 2017 via Megaforce Records/MRI. Delirium Tremens is now available for pre-orders via Amazon, with more options coming soon.

In celebration of this announcement, NARCOTIC WASTELAND have dropped the first single from the album, entitled “Faces of Meth”. Listen below:

 NARCOTIC WASTELAND frontman Dallas Toler-Wade says: “‘Faces of Meth’ was the second song I wrote for the album. It was kind of inspired by those before and after pictures of people who become addicted to crystal meth. The musical ideas are based off of some of the riff ideas I had in the early 90s, mixed with some newer ideas. Sometimes ideas take years to find their place in a song, and sometimes a song will come in a single night. The best thing to do is just keep jamming and thinking about what you want to achieve musically and lyrically.”

Delirium Tremens shines a spotlight on negative human behavior, again inspired by – but not entirely based on – our country’s addiction epidemic. Loosely inspired by the unstable drug culture present in the band’s stomping grounds of Fayetteville, North Carolina, Delirium Tremens traverses an atmosphere of instability and toxicity that audibly manifests as a gritty, unrelenting, pulverizing extreme metal storm. On Delirium Tremens, NARCOTIC WASTELAND manages to create challenging music without losing a sense of meaning and vital emotional connection with the listener.

“The topic of drug use and death is still present, but we are also branching off a bit to talk about venomous human behavior, self-reflection, and big pharmaceutical companies ruining lives for big profits,” continues Dallas.“I’m very excited for our fans, and fans of metal to hear this album. I feel in many ways it’s our best work, yet I feel we are only skimming the surface of what is possible with this band.”

Delirium Tremens was produced and mixed by NARCOTIC WASTELAND at Vegas View Recording and Dallas’ home studio. For recording and mixing, the band tapped Grammy award winning producer Neil Kernon at Auslander, with mastering by metal producer-elite Alan Douches at West West Side Music.

Dallas adds: “I have worked with Neil Kernon on many albums at this point. He has always inspired me and pushed me to be better than I thought I could be. He is a great producer and a great friend. He is brutally honest. That’s one of the things I love about him the most.”
