Legendary NYC rock powerhouse UNSANE has completed work on
its long awaited new album, titled “WRECK”. Their seventh full length, it gets a March 20 release date via Jello
Biafra’s Alternative Tentacles label. 

      Recorded by the band and producer Andrew Schneider at
Brooklyn’s Translator Audio (Pelican,
Keelhaul, etc.), “WRECK” is
described by the label as “an unfettered burst of pent up emotions and
frustrations channeled into song and an unflinching glance into a type of life
others probably should not lead….  darkly abrasive and poetic music delivered
with a fearsome intensity.”

 

 

     “Making the album “WRECK”
has been amazingly cathartic. Not only musically, but personally,”
comments vocalist/guitarist Chris Spencer. “Writing with Dave (Curran,
bass) and Vincent (Signorelli, drums) is always great, and having been
together so long made it easy to focus on what musically and lyrically
would sum up this period of time. Recordings about modern urban life. The
constant noise, confrontation, stress and alienation that goes with it,
and the dysfunctional ways people try to deal with it. The death, drugs,
attempted suicide and
completely degenerative behavior of those around us really left a mark. I
really was feeling like I needed to get it out of my system. There are
some moments of redemption, but
more often than not things did not end well. As the world population
reaches seven billion it’s impossible not to feel the overcrowding.”

     Upon the release of the new LP, Unsame will team up
