#1Chrome Over Brass (May 11)

Chrome Over Brass is the brainchild of Alex Garcia-Rivera, drummer of American Nightmare. A highly regarded drum technician, Garcia-Rivera has worked on albums by Converge, Coliseum, Beastmilk and more. Also known for his drumming work as a touring member for Cold Cave, Saves the Day, Shelter and many others, Chrome Over Brass is a true DIY project. Garcia-Rivera's upcoming album under the band name finds him recording at his own Mystic Valley Studio, a fully analog studio he built with his own hands. 

Each song is comprised of one complete drum performance on a simple five-piece drum set (also made by Garcia-Rivera) with no digital editing. Guitar and bass tracks were recorded in singular takes, a true rarity in today's cut-and-paste music world. Deathwish Inc. will announce a release date for the Chrome Over Brass album shortly.
