Photo Finish Records has announced the release of “RACE YOU TO THE BOTTOM,” the debut album from Minneapolis-based hard rock band New Medicine, due everywhere September 14.
Leading up to the release, the band will join Halestorm on a cross-country trek through the end of July, after which both bands will join headliners Disturbed and Avenged Sevenfold for the Rock Star Energy Drink Uproar Festival.
“Laid,” the first single from “RACE YOU TO THE BOTTOM,” will hit active rock radio later this summer. The song is currently available at all online retailers, and a companion video is in production and due later this month.
On “RACE YOU TO THE BOTTOM,” New Medicine collaborated with several notable producers including Sam Hollander and Dave Katz, better known as S*A*M & Sluggo (Coheed & Cambria, Gym Class Heroes, Katy Perry); Steve Hodge (Michael Jackson, Sting, Psychedelic Furs); and The Blasting Room, the production team of Bill Stevenson (Rise Against) and Jason Livermore (Puddle of Mudd). The resulting 14 songs showcase a hard sound with a positive slant.
New Medicine is Jake Scherer, Dan Garland, Matthew Brady, and Ryan Guanzon. For up-to-the-minute news and information, please visit www.newmedicinerock.com, www.myspace.com/newmedicine, and http://twitter.com/newmedicine.
