A little over twenty years ago, The New Rising Sons formed in the bowels of the lower east side of Manhattan by Garrett Klahn (Texas Is The Reason) and Drew Thomas (Into Another) had parted with their respective bands and created something more with local guitarist and songwriter Kevin McGinnis. After a few months, The New Rising Sons were offered a multi-album contract with Virgin Records. Ted Niceley (Fugazi, Girls Against Boys, Shudder To Think, Jawbox, Standford Prison Experiment) was brought in to produce, while Andy Wallace (Nirvana, Faith No More, Jeff Buckley, Sonic Youth, Rage Against The Machine, Foo Fighters), was slated to mix. Scotty Beschta (The Promise Ring) was recruited to fill the bass role, but due to unforeseen circumstances, never ended up on the final recordings. As time went on, plagued both by troubles at the label and turmoil internally, the band would ultimately reach its demise in late 2000. The could’ves, would’ves, and should’ves have been a topic of conversation since the band was dropped and the record shelved. Thankfully, with the help of Arctic Rodeo, the record is being released in full for the first time, as a limited edition 20th anniversary vinyl and re-mastered by the Grammy award-winning mastering engineer Alan Douches (Sufjan Stevens, The Promise Ring, Converge, Brand New, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Saves the Day, Mastodon, The Chemical Brothers, Yes, Ben Folds Five, Hole, The Dismemberment Plan, Run DMC, Monster Magnet). Now available.
