42 DECIBEL - HARD ROCK N´ROLL DEBUT ALBUM OUT IN JUNE
42 Decibel have documented one thing
beyond a doubt: traditional rock'n'roll is universal and stops neither
at geographical borders nor current trends and fashions. The way this
young band get down to business in the studio and live on stage brings
to mind acts such as AC/DC, Airbourne, The Answer and Buckcherry.
42 Decibel sound like they might hail from Australia, the US, England
or Scandinavia. But in fact the quartet stems from Argentina, where they
have recently shaken all the hottest clubs in and around Buenos Aires
to their very foundations. Their debut album Hard Rock'n'Roll is a
classy, spirited rock pamphlet and has been scheduled as CD and LP for
release on 24 June 2013 (Germany: 21 June 2013; US/Canada: 2 July 2013).
Nicko Cambiasso is the band's mastermind. He founded 42 Decibel in January 2010 and indicates the band's general direction: “I'm
the man behind the project, in a way from the very beginning the one
who set the direction of our sound, where we should aim in terms of our
songwriting and how we should develop in the future,” Cambiasso explains. “I'm
really old school, I like the drums to be pretty straightforward and to
sound solid in order to go straight into the aural tract of our
listeners.” The group's frontman is vocalist/guitarist Junior Figueroa, who founded 42 Decibel together with Cambiasso. “Junior is the youngest of the band members, a great frontman, very dynamic on stage,” Cambiasso describes his colleague, “one
of the best guitarists I've played with. As a lot of people say after
having seen one of our shows: 'He's out of this world'.” The band is completed by bassist Chris Marck Towers and rhythm/slide guitarist Billy Bob Riley. “Billy
Bob is a very easy-going person who explodes on stage and can't stop
moving even for a second. Thanks to his slide guitar skills, we've
succeeded in broadening our compositional range,” Cambiasso enthuses, commenting equally positively on his bassist: “Chris
is a tougher guy, he's got a great groove. He's not one of those who
play one and the same note all the time. His bass riffs add that special
touch which sets us apart from other bands in this genre.”
42 Decibel's first 7-track demo saw
the light of day back in spring 2010, defining the basis of their sound.
Now the band are ready to present their first album Hard Rock'n'Roll,
recorded with the support of sound engineer Patricio Claypole at the El
Attic Studios and mastered by Justin Weis (Papa Roach, The Tubes) at San
Francisco's Trakworx Studios. The debut's title hints at the direction
of the album: traditional rock music which goes straight to gut and into
your feet. The musician's influences are unmistakable and as renowned
as they are legendary: “Our sound is pretty much old school, vintage, straightforward and genuine,” says Cambiasso. “We
all love AC/DC, Jimi Hendrix, Creedence Clearwater Revival, ZZ Top, Led
Zeppelin, Rose Tattoo, Elvis Presley, Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin and
Lynyrd Skynyrd. We just try to play the music we want to listen to and
go back to our roots.”
Cambiasso is referring to haunting rock tracks such as 'Scotch Drinker',
'Smokin' Fire' and 'Addicted To Rage' with their uncompromising drive
and disarming directness. 'Gimme A Drink', for example, refers to a
fairly unattractive woman who seems to become more interesting after a
few drinks. 'Rocker Soul' with its powerful and gritty riff also
deserves a mention and is the thematic symbol of the band's philosophy.
Cambiasso: “´Rocker Soul` was the first song we composed together.”
Probably the most unusual track on Hard Rock'n'Roll is 'Long Legged
Woman'. “The Song has that Australian sound, but with a touch of
Southern Rock, and features one of the guitar solos I most enjoy on the
record.” That's pretty much all you need to know about the album for the
time being. The outstanding songs on 42 Decibel's album are set to
answer any questions you may have!
