If the New Wave of British Heavy Metal bombed the seedy Sunset Strip circa 1987, the result would be a gnarly New Disaster. “I always wanted to play in a band that sounded as raw and sleazy as possible,” says ace guitarist, Abel Idle. “From the first night we played together, I knew it was on.” The Disaster Boys’ debut album "Last Night Rites" was recorded at Texas’ legendary Arlyn Studios and mixed by the world renowned Andy Johns of The Rolling Stones and Zeppelin fame. Combine that with their brand new album "Automanic", and you find New Disaster locked and loaded to rekindle the flames of raw-power rock-n-roll. Already wanted for stealing the show on the local club circuit, New Disaster has its sights set on the world at large as songs such as “Virtuous Sin,” “Automanic,” “Shotgun Facelift” and “Cancion De Llello” are set to obliterate stereo speakers, audiences and anything else in harm’s way.
With two albums up their sleeves, a touring van ready for combat, and two European tours under their belts, New Disaster welcomes the chance to navigate the highway to hell on the quest for knock ‘em dead notoriety. “We decided at the beginning that we weren’t going to be just another local band,” says Mark Johnson. “We’re out to be an international touring band and we’re willing to push ourselves through relentless playing and touring. I feel like we’re unstoppable. We’re playing what everyone else is trying to play and that’s some serious, bad-ass rock-n-roll.” Consider yourself warned.
