’77 Offer First Taste Of Upcoming ‘Maximum Rock N’ Roll’ Album
July 28, 2013
Spanish hard rockers ’77 have unveiled the front cover artwork and a brand new track, “Down And Dirty”, from their forthcoming album ‘Maximum Rock N’ Roll’ due for release on October 14th through Listenable records. ‘Maximum Rock N’ Roll’s cover was done by urban artist Abdul Vas.
’77 are known for their active touring schedule, electrifying shows, and being rooted in the ’70s. ‘Maximum Rock N’ Roll’ follows the band’s highly successful sophomore release ‘High Decibels’, named one of 2011’s best albums by Sleaze Roxx.
‘Maximum Rock N’ Roll’ was recorded at Gutterview Recorders, in Stockholm from the 17th to 28th of March 2013 and was produced by Fred Estby and Nicke Andersson. It was mastered by Hoffe at Cosmos Mastering, Stockholm.
‘Maximum Rock N’ Roll’ is definitely an album title that speaks for itself. “We tried to harden the style and sound we achieved with High Decibels with even more powerful riffs and catchy choruses. This is an honest album, ’77 doing what we do best, play together rock and roll songs.”
The band is also happy to offer new ideas, “We kept expanding the sound of the band though, ‘Jazz It Up’ or ‘Don’t You Scream’ are good examples, as they are really different songs and something we’ve never approached before. Another example of this to bring the band’s sound to new shores is ‘You Bore Me’, a song featuring LG (Valeta, guitarist) on vocals for the first time on record.”
“We obviously wrote music in typical ’77 fashion such as ‘Down And Dirty’ or ‘Stay Away From Water’, tunes that will make you bang your head and raise your fist in the air while singing the choruses. Once more we recorded live in the studio, supervised by Fred Estby this time behind the mics and mixing desk, and we are really happy with the sound we got: no tricks, no FX! Just Maximum Rock and Roll played as loud as possible”
