If you’ve somehow missed the glory thus far, The Company Band is Dave Bone, Neil Fallon (Clutch), Brad Davis (Fu Manchu), Jess Margera (CKY) and James A. Rota (Fireball Ministry), a gathering of friends and furious talent for the sake of some shitkicking Rock fun. TCB released their debut EP Sign Here, Here, and Here in 2007, and followed with a full-length debut album that leaped far beyond the satirical ode to corporate imperialism that birthed their name and the center theme of their debut EP.
Melodically clean, brutally clever and packed with bare-knuckle Rock, there are no dull moments in TCB world. Set for a July 31 release on Weathermaker Music, Pros & Cons is a 5-track EP, recorded and mixed at LA’s legendary Grandmaster Recorders studio by Andrew Alekel. Pros & Cons keeps true to The Company Band’s original mission of offering straight up kick ass Rock ‘n Roll.
Listen to House of Capricorn below:
Vocalist Neil Fallon shares a little insight on the track:
The House of Capricorn is an interstellar flop house. A rehab clinic for forgotten gods and titans. Portions of the lyrics to House of Capricorn are taken directly from the “orientation program” that plays when a freshman group is introduced to the facility. Some artistic license was taken with the description of the House of Capricorn, but for the most it accurately portrays The Company Band’s time there and their subsequent (and now infamous) failed rehabilitation.
There you have it folks. Prepare for the return of The Company Band. Along with the CD release, Weathermaker Music will release a 12” vinyl limited edition/collectors version of the EP. The EP and the vinyl will be released on July 31st.
