The Last Vegas Finish Recording Full Length With Producer Johnny K
December 8, 2011
The Last Vegas officially released their ‘Other Side’ EP on November 29th. The EP serves as a sneak peek into what fans can expect from The Last Vegas’ forthcoming 2012 full length album. The yet to be titled album was recorded this year at Groovemaster Studios in the band’s hometown of Chicago, Illinois and was produced by Grammy nominated producer Johnny K (Disturbed, Megadeth, 3 Doors Down, Staind, Airbourne). 14 tracks in all were recorded with the final track listing and sequencing currently being decided.
When asked about the sound of the upcoming CD frontman Chad Cherry told Sleaze Roxx, “I think the new record is much rawer — more punk rock. I think that’s the best way to describe it. When we write music we write very catchy hooks and I think this will be very apparent on the new record.”
The Last Vegas will be hitting the road this February in support of the upcoming full length and will playing new songs and TLV favorites on a two week tour of Spain. Extensive touring both in the U.S. and abroad will follow the Spanish dates, which will see the band on the road for almost all of 2012.
