Although the past year and a half has been an especially rough time for New York hardcore veterans, Full Blown Chaos, vocalist Ray Mazzola wants fans to know that the band is stronger than ever, and has plans to release a new album in 2010, tentatively called Villains.
"Between being stifled by personal loses and major deaths in all of our families, it was hard to stay on the road and keep focused on the big picture," explains Mazzola. "Music has a way though, to heal and revitalize the soul through creativity and inspiration. Writing this record has been just that."
Full Blown Chaos is currently finishing up the writing process for the new album, and will head into the studio for preproduction within the next couple of weeks. Formally a four-piece band, Full Blown Chaos has added a second guitarist for the upcoming release, and plan to take full advantage of the new opportunities that the fresh line-up has to offer.
"Being a five-piece now has its benefits, and we are fine tuning it all. This record is going to decimate everything we have released to date, and beat the piss out of the bullshit being praised today. It's not enough to step up to the plate and contend for individuality, you need to knock it out of the park and show everyone what the fuck is up."
