“‘The Devil I Am’ video shoot was without a doubt one of the best times I’ve ever had shooting a video. It was great to share the screen with Keith and Trevor. We were all about just making the video as amazing as possible and pulling out all the stops. Whatever it took to make the video really great and we did it,” says Never Enough frontman Norman Matthews. “Shot in Irvine, CA, we didn’t want to do the traditional band performing on their instruments, we really wanted to bring the emotion of the song to the table and act out the emotion of the lyrics. It was a labor of love as even the camera man wore face paint and the vibe was just great! Sam with Dose Productions who did the Victory Pill video for ‘Worse Case Scenario’ is putting everything together in France. He’s got a great eye for things and I’m truly honored and excited to see the final product.”

The band has also posted a free Mp3 download of the t rack “To The Bottom” online through the Corporate Punishment Podcast. The track comes from Never Enough’s debut, self-titled album (“1.0”) which will be available digitally through iTunes and other major digital retailers on November 20th and in stores on December 4th, 2007. The band is currently offering fans a free Never Enough t-shirt to anyone who pre-orders the album through the Corporate Punishment Records website at the following location http://www.corporatepunishment.com/shop/index.php?manufacturers_id=28

When asked about the song, front-man Norman Matthews called it, “Heavy, killer, hook laden guitars with a huge chorus. For me, the song is about people only seeing on the surface, not digging deeper to find out what is really going on with someone. A lot of times we mask our true feelings, but deep inside we are an ocean unto ourselves, deeps seas of emotions longing for someone or something to dig deep and save you.”

Ghost Machine
guitarist reveals band has 33 songs ready for next album

Ghost Machine guitarist John Stevens (ex-Clay People) has revealed more details about the creation of the group’s debut album and the group’s follow-up album, which is slated for release sometime in 2008.

“The entire process of the Hypersensitive album took place either in my studio at my house, except for the drums, which we needed a facility that would properly capture the drum tones. We recorded them at Assembly Line studios in Vienna, VA, and Orange Whip in Santa Barbara, Ca” says Ghost Machine guitarist John Stevens. “In comparison to the last release, this one was carrying the weight of a lot of baggage from our lives. The music for Edification was about my ex, my kid, my life. This whole album was very personal for all of us. It was the perfect chance for Ivan and I to disclose and say goodbye to some personal demons we both carry. Strange how 95% of our material starts out as an insightful instrumental that I write to listen to by myself, but the most tracks that are most impacting were “Sheltered” and “Vegas”, which were generated from Wingnut and Crispy respectively. But it’s really about honesty. We can’t hide the who we are.”

Ghost Machine, which also features Five Finger Death Punch frontman Ivan Moody and former Motograter drummer Chris “Crispy” Binns, recently released the band’s debut album Hypersensitive on Corporate Punishment Records. The album engineered and co-produced by Pete Murray (Ultraspank, Lo-Pro) and draws from a wide range of influences that ran ge from like NINE INCH NAILS, THE CURE, PINK FLOYD, ALICE IN CHAINS, TOOL and MINISTRY.

“The new CD is written and ready for studio. It’s the most incredible stuff I’ve ever been involved with or written. We have yet to choose from 33 tracks which ones are going to represent our lives at this time.” says Stevens. “It will be a double disc, with full band input as opposed to the last two releases being more of a directed out of my studio with Ivan. We are going to do full band rehearsals and get everyone involved. We are also looking at a few different producers to work with on many different songs to keep the sound vibrant, different and well rounded. The self titled and Hypersensitive albums were mainly produced by me, but this time we want to find more outside perspectives that have the same vision we do then see what happens with the end result.”

The group’s debut album can be streamed in its entirety at the following location:
