May 19, 2011 — Beginning Thursday, May 19th, Egypt Central will be counting down to the release of their new album, White Rabbit, by premiering sneak peeks into the making of the album on the band’s Facebook page.
A new, exclusive, behind the scenes video clip featuring lead singer John Falls and drummer Blake Allison, along with a preview of one of the 12 tracks from the album, will premiere on each of the 12 days leading up to the May 31 release of White Rabbit (Fat Lady Music/ILG/Warner Music Group). Watch the band give you insight into each song, and listen to clips from all 12 tracks from the album before you can buy it.
White Rabbit is the follow up to 2008’s self-titled debut album, which debuted at #8 on the Billboard “Heatseekers” chart. Produced by Skidd Mills (Saving Abel, 12 Stones, etc.) the album features twelve songs of heavy riffs, lyrics from the soul and strong melodic hooks. Threaded throughout this collection of songs is a story of consequences that occur when one accepts or declines the invitation from the “White Rabbit.”
Bassist Joey Chicago is the artist behind the artwork included in the CD booklet, which features the first four cells of a comic strip series based around the story of the “White Rabbit.” The band has partnered with Revolver, who will be exclusively unveiling the first 12 sequential parts of the comic strip—with commentary from Chicago—one per day, leading up to the album’s release date. See the first cell here.
The first single and title track was released to Active Rock radio and iTunes on February 15. It’s currently sitting at #19 on the Active Rock radio chart. A video for “White Rabbit” was recently shot in Nashville with director Mason Dixon (Framing Hanley, Tantric). An exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of the video can be seen on Noisecreep.com here.
