Out today here in the states. Best Buy has an exclusive version with 2 bonus tracks, on sale this week for $7.99.

 

For Geoff however, assuming he hasn't yet heard (or seen it), the single that's been getting a lot of airplay here is "Porn Star Dancing".

 

Personally, I think it's catchy as heck. Very Nickelbackish at times. The first time I heard it on Octane, I couldn't get the damned chorus out of my head. Very infectious; definitely sticks with you.

 

Two versions. First a rock version with Zakk Wylde:

Second, an extended version with Ludacris:

Whoa damn...pretty sexy video there. Song is catchy as heck too. Don't really know anything about this band but I'm going to have to check out a few more sound samples.

The entire cd is pretty damn good if you like the Nickelback style mixed with some Hinder and Shinedown. :headbanger: Thanks for the recommendation Dan!

Yep, I picked up my copy yesterday as well. Some cool stuff on this one. To be honest, there are several fillers, but the good more than outweighs the bad. I think they're a little lighter version than the bands mentioned though. To me it's more like Nickelback meets Rooster meets Sick Puppies. The "Porn Star Dancing" featuring Zakk Wylde is probably the heaviest track. I also downloaded the exclusive bonus track on Itunes called "Fucked Up Situation". Thanks again Dan. I knew nothing about this band until you started this thread.

Interesting. I guess there are multiple "exclusive" versions out there.

 

The 2 "exclusive" tracks on iTunes are:

 

1. Fucked Up Situation

2. Porn Star Dancing (looks to be an extended mix of the Ludacris version)

 

The 2 "exclusive" tracks on the Best Buy CD are:

 

1. Without You (great ballad!)

2. Still Worth Fighting For

Goddamn my time restraints - will check out those vids asap. Funnily enough I just shoved this album on my Ipod not 2 hours ago as I liked what I heard. Will no doubt enjoy and proceed to buy asap. Comments to follow when I've heard it. :)

Just heard this... pretty good. Like Nickelback, the more commercial/melodic numbers are easily the highlight. 'Can't forget you' was particularly delicious.

I just picked up the Best Buy version and this is a pretty darn good disc. I copied all but a few tracks to the computer/ipod.

 

Rick, did you ever make the show? If so, any good?

They will be here April 4th. I've already told a buddy of mine that is interested that I'll definitely go if he decides to pick up tix. He's still saying he will go but as of yet no tickets so we'll see what happens, but I'll let you know how they are if I go.

I usually hate this style of music, but I am quite enjoying 'Goodbye'. Quite a nice catchy song. :whistle:

Great album, with "Set it on Fire" (sounds almost like Hanson :yikes: ) being the only filler.

 

I've had no luck finding "Fucked up Situation", "Without You" or "Still worth Fighting For" on iTunes, any suggestions where to find these tracks?

I can send you "Without You" and "Still worth Fighting For", but I don't have "Fucked up Situation". PM me if you are interested and I will fire them you way.

Really? That song's one of my favorites :( That and "Every Lie." It's a great Modern Melodic Rock album, though. They seem to understand melodicism and hooks better than most bands of that style. I hope their next album is just as good!

    • Ok Cody, It was 41 vs 330. It's now 63 vs 335, so we're making ground, but you need to fire up and make some contributions. It's your thread and that's what you're hanging by at the moment with the big guy.

    • A little sumthin sumthin from the coolest band east of the Rockies.    Show them some well deserved lovin' fellas!   FuZZrd thanks readers w/an advance download of “Pins & Needles” from their debut LP Near Life Experience being released globally December 10, 2021. From Steve Karas (w/slight edits): FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE December 3, 2021 FuZZrd's debut studio album: Near Life Experience available December 10, 2021 Download “PINS & NEEDLES” Here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/ Album teaser video: https://bit.ly/FuZZrdAlbumTeaser Pre-order: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com/ Upcoming live show at Minneapolis’ The Southern Theatre December 11, 2021 –  https://southerntheater.org/ Minneapolis, MN – FuZZrd would like to share their gratitude to the sites readers and presents a free download of the song “Pins & Needles” in advance of the band’s debut studio album Near Life Experience which is being released on December 10, 2021. To access the free download or preview the song, click here: https://www.fuzzrd.com/sleazeroxx/.   FuZZrd guitarist and vocalist Brett Petrusek shares, “Pins and Needles is a personal favorite. It's a song about loss and the overwhelming feeling of anxiety that can often ensue. If you've ever felt so wound up that your skin is crawling you may relate. For me, it's sonically intriguing, it's mysterious and the chorus hits just right. It's wickedly fun to play on guitar, too!" The debut album can be pre-ordered at a discounted price here: https://fuzzrd.limitedrun.com. The band will perform the day following release day alongside Johnny O' Neil (of Dare Force fame) and up and comers, The Issue at The Southern Theatre in Minneapolis, MN. Tickets for the appearance can be purchased by visiting https://southerntheater.org/. Petrusek reflects, “I'm so very proud of what we have accomplished this past year. It's gratifying to see and hear Near Life Experience in its completed form. It's a powerhouse and definitely fits in the category of ‘album I've always wanted to make’. The chemistry with our producer Jeremy Tappero continued to flourish and we all grew as musicians. I love the songs and sound we've created. It's fresh, and new, and noticeably doesn't chase trends. It stays true to its heavy rock roots. It's so awesome to be a part of FuZZrd coming to life, playing live shows, and sharing our music. The whole of what we have created is truly rewarding. I'm totally grateful to have this group." Bassist and background vocalist Robert Berg states, “Substance of structure. A collection of songs that in my view captures what's truly important for fans of multigenerational hard rock. I love the upfront guitars and inspired solos. There's a maturity in the vocal melodies that catapults the meaningful lyrical content. It was inspiring to witness. Every member brought what was necessary; when necessary. I believe we just barely dipped our toes into what's possible with our current guitar duo's musical chemistry. Special, special, special thanks to Producer Jeremy Tappero. I tell him all the time that my favorite moments in life are sitting in the chair next to him and laying it down. He's a true mentor who seemingly always knows what's right for the band. Brett is quite forward thinking and never short of ideas. FuZZrd will build on the experience and continue to make the rock pound." Guitarist and background vocalist Eric Fairchild offers, “Discovering the chemistry and camaraderie of FuZZrd has been the highlight of a truly chaotic year and a half. Being able to connect and collaborate on new music has been so fulfilling. I’m really proud of the work we’ve put in, and the album that has emerged as a result. The songs on Near Life Experience have been able to capture so many feelings that have been otherwise difficult to express. Plus, it’s always fun to tear it up on the guitar! I’m thrilled to get these songs in front of audiences, and continue to build on what we’ve started." Drummer Scott Savage adds, "I could not be happier with the new record; and it could not have happened without everyone’s dedication and hard work. It’s so gratifying to have this finished product and be able to share with everyone! I’m so proud of my band mates and what we have accomplished. We are definitely fired up about what the future holds for us!" For more information contact: Steve Karas SKH Music -  skaras@skhmusic.com
    • I'm digging this song.  Good stuff.  Background vocals don't bother me at all here.
    • Yeah, my apologies for not checking there first.  Figured H.E.A.T fans that frequent this section would be interested.
