Rikets Set To Release New Album On 4/20
March 18, 2010
On April 20, 2010, Oklahoma Industrial/Metal outfit- Rikets will release their sophomore effort - 'All America Death Cult' on Burnhill Union Records. The band comprised of vocalist and multi-instrumentalist- Scott Rose, guitarist and producer Provo, drummer Timmy Braun, Michael Reams on bass, and Nick Quijano (formerly of American Head Charge) on second guitar. Rose and company uprooted the original 'All American Death Cult' recording session from where they began in Dallas, TX and relocated them to Ben Schigel's (Switched) Strongsville, OH studio. "Ben has been there since day ONE. He's a motivator, a mentor, a vocal trainer a great creative mind. I've been friends with Ben for years and Switched was one of my favorite bands," Rose explains. "Working with him over the years on Rikets has been cool for both of us because we get to jam together."

'All American Death Cult' features tracks such as Program The Dead, Sold Me Out and a familiar track, "Cry Little Sister," a cover of a song made famous in The Lost Boys (a popular 1987 film). "I had called up Gerard McMann (original vocalist) who was a email buddy of mine and asked him if we could record his song for our new record," Scott recounts. "I wanted him to sing the song. I didn't want to fuck up the most perfect song ever, trying to re interpret what this guy felt when he laid it down." McMann came out and recorded with Rikets, creating a powerful new version of the acclaimed track.

McMann had this to say, "It was great to redo the song with Rikets because I was able to try new approaches to singing it and experiment with the track." He goes on to add, "What Rikets have done with this track is massive. I've heard a lot of people cover the song and their version is just huge!"

On March 27, the band will be shooting the video for the albums first single "Program The Dead" with director David Brodsky (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Hatebreed, Fear Factory) in Oklahoma city. The video will feature leading lady- Staci Flood who has worked with marquee names such as Busta Rhymes and Will Smith in addition to co-founding the "Bombshell Babies" and "The Pussycat Dolls" burlesque cabaret revue's featuring Carmen Electra.
