Fresh from sharing stages at a string of sold-out venues on their groundbreaking "Congress of Corruption" fall U.S. tour, Cement Shoes Records label mates Ill Nino
and Ra will be back together before a live national listening audience next month on "Rockline."
Ill Nino and Ra will be the featured guests on the venerable nationally syndicated radio show Monday, November 13, beginning at 8:30 p.m. PT / 11:30 p.m. ET. Fans are encouraged to call in with questions during the program at (800) 344-ROCK (7625). To find a station near you, check out www.rocklineradio.com.
Both bands appear on "Rockline" just as their debut Cement Shoes Records releases are hitting the street, offering listeners the rare opportunity to discuss first-hand the band's entirely different approaches to heavy music on their new recordings.
Ra's third album, Raw
, arriving in stores Today, captures a live performance earlier this year at the Machine Shop in Flint, MI, mixed by legendary producer Andy Johns (Led Zeppelin
, Van Halen
, Ozzy Osbourne
). Aside from including the band's strongest live material, Raw's only studio track, the passionate new single, "Don't Turn Away," has quickly become a radio favorite, with #1 Most Added status at the Active Rock format and quick growth on both the BDS And MediaBase charts with no signs of slowing down any time soon. The East Coast alternative rock/alternative metal/post-grunge outfit draws its inspiration from the ancient Sun god of Egyptian mythology, for which the band is named, and has a unique ability to combine the heavy and the ethereal with an intriguingly wide variety of influences.
On Nov. 7, Ill Nino the world re-known bi-lingual Latino Metal sextet, will be releasing The Under Cover Sessions
, a five-song EP comprised of three of the band's favorite cover songs from acts they loved growing up as fans -– Peter Gabriel
's "Red Rain," Nirvana
's "Territorial Pissings" and Faith No More
's "Zombie Eaters" (featuring a very special guest vocalist appearance) plus two brand new songs. The aforementioned Andy Johns produced with Dave Chavarri and Eddie Wohl (Anthrax
, 36 Crazyfists, Machine Head
). The EP is just a taste of what's to come from Ill Nino, as their highly anticipated fourth full-length studio album, due for a Spring 2007 delivery, is destined to be the band's most influential release to date.
