Sick of it All Announce ”Wake The Sleeping Dragon!”

New album in November

Sick of it All

SICK OF IT ALL have announced the release of their upcoming album, entitled ”Wake The Sleeping Dragon!“, which is scheduled for a release November 2nd, 2018.

Working with friends is one of the key factors that are very important to SICK OF IT ALL, so asking Ernie Parada for the striking front cover was an obvious choice: “There is no reason to burn bridges in this business”, says drummer drummer Armand Majidi . “Our history with Ernie Parada goes back to the late eighties, so working with him, there is a kinship that makes things easier to communicate.” Singer Lou Koller and Parada came up with the idea of doing monster-movie styled art as the cover. “The dragon climbing the Empire State was a concept I always wanted to see brought to life, so the two ideas were destined to come together this way.”

SICK OF IT ALL and Tue Madsen, who mixed and mastered “Wake The Sleeping Dragon!”, have maintained a long-lasting relationship based on understanding, friendship and most importantly, good results – three factors any band would be very happy with.  The Jerry Farley also became a very important part of the creation of this album. After working with him at Nova Studios, Staten Island, New York, before they went for a closer approach on this album: “This is the first time we’ve ever had a producer involved from start to finish, including the song-writing process.  His objective viewpoints helped settle a lot of little issues that could have easily become stumbling blocks, and the songs themselves ended up benefitting from them.”

The band have also said that a new song will be coming soon, so keep checking back here at The Metal Report as we’ll post it as soon as we have it.

SICK OF IT ALL will also play a one off date in the UK in January:

27.01.19 (UK) London – O2 Forum Kentish Town
