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.”

Delirium Tremens track listing:

  1. Introspective Nightmares
  2. Faces of Meth
  3. Return to the Underground
  4. We Agnostics
  5. In Memoriam (intro)
  6. Bleed and Swell
  7. Delirium Tremens
  8. Self Immolation
  9. Life Revolted
  10. You Will Die Alone
  11. Husk
  12. Pharma Culture

In support of the new album, NARCOTIC WASTELAND will head out on a 20+ city North American tour, beginning October 21 in Greenville, SC and hitting several states and provinces, coming to an end in Orlando, FL on December 9.

JOHN 5 took a different approach with the release of Season Of The Witch, choosing to share his new music with fans throughout 2016 by releasing several tracks individually in the form of various music videos. Tracks/videos released include the fast-paced “Black Grass Plague”, downtempo, introspective “Behind The Nut Love”, hard rocking “Now Fear This”, jazz fusion marathon “Here’s To The Crazy Ones” (featuring a bit of “monkeying around”), heavy metal Claymation shredfest “Making Monsters”, and last but not least, the whiskey-soaked “Hell Haw”. The videos have garnered nearly a million views, collectively.

“Since music is so visual nowadays, I thought these videos would be the best way to get my music out there, and it seems to have worked – now everybody knows the songs on the record,” states JOHN 5. “I put so much work into this record with the videos, the artwork, the songwriting and the playing – out of my catalog, this is by far my favorite solo record.”

Season Of The Witch track listing:

1) Book of Spells

2) The Black Grass Plague

3) Guitars Tits and Monsters

4) Now Fear This

5) Behind the Nut Love

6) Making Monsters

7) Dr. Evil’s Spook Show

8) Here’s To The Crazy Ones

9) The Macabre

10) Ddd

11) Hell Haw I.G.R.

12) Ode to Jasper

13) Season Of The Witch

JOHN 5 has worked with a varied range of artists, performing as guitarist for some of the biggest headlining rock bands in the world such as Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson, as well as playing session with Paul Stanley, Rod Stewart, Lynyrd Skynyrd and more. Slash has called JOHN 5, “one of the most mind-blowing guitarists around” and Rob Zombie has dubbed him “a fucking shredder”. JOHN 5 has released seven solo albums to date, as well as a remix album, and has written music for the likes of Avril Lavigne, Garbage, Ricky Martin and others.

The spotlights are on: this coming Friday 20th April, GOTTHARD are releasing the first single from the album “Firebirth”, out on 1st. June. The single, with the name “Starlight” will appear in two versions, a rock and an acoustic variation.

“Starlight” is the virtual shooting star of album song writing: the song was one of the first that the band wrote together with Nic Maeder, the new member at the microphone. “The chemistry between us worked immediately”, says guitarist Leo Leoni. “It is really unusual to be able to sit down together and straightway write a song which is later the single.”

“Right from the first, we had a really laid-back atmosphere between us,” agrees Nic Maeder. “It was therefore not hard to come up with good ideas. It was really good fun from the start!”

“Starlight” is not only the first official single to be released but also the lucky star shining on the new formation’s collaboration.

Now the first signs of life of this musical “Firebirth” are showing themselves – strong, catchy and full of life!

“Starlight” can be found on the playlist of all relevant radio stations. A video clip of the song will follow in the next few weeks …

“Starlight” available on iTunes from 20th April on:
