San Diego, CA’s Mower have entered a Los Angeles, CA recording studio with producer Eddie Wohl (Anthrax, Ill Nino, 36 Crazyfists, Dry Kill Logic). The album will be a split effort with six brand new Mower songs and six songs from the group’s jazz alter ego Slower. Slower is comprised of the Mower band members performing jazz and lounge versions of Mower songs.
“Mower has always worked from a punk rock mindset and that involves disregarding what’s trendy and concentrating on being creative.Â Slower was born after trying something different in a song on the last CD. The songs have the same content as Mower and putting that into a mellower vibe is one of the most subversive things we could do at this point,” says Mower frontman Brian Sheerin. “Splitting the new CD between Mower and Slower is a great way to give our fans something different and involve some new listeners at the same time. Doing it this way also allowed us to focus on keeping the Mower songs heavy, and our longtime fans will like that.”
The album is the follow-up to their critically acclaimed sophomore effort “Not For You”, which was produced by ex-Snot/Invitro guitarist Mikey Doling. The album landed them tours supporting (Hed)p.e. and Diecast, whileÂ the albumâ€™s lead single â€œRoad Rageâ€ has quickly become one of the most requested tracks at Sirius Satellite Radioâ€™s Hard Attack. The bandâ€™s video for â€œRoad Rageâ€ directed by Dale Resteghini (HATEBREED, SHADOWS FALL) can be viewed at the following location www.revver.com/watch/89187
