Akron hard rockers L. A. Knights have entered an Akron, Ohio studio with new producer Curran Murphy (Annihilator/Nevermore/Shatter Messiah) to begin recording their new album for a tentative summer release. Knights guitarist, Jozey Zeitler recently told John "American Hilljack" Lane host of the "Hilljack House" on northcoastunderground.com, that he hopes to be done tracking the new CD PSYCHOANALYZE "Sometime in April."
L. A. Knights debut release was "Rubber City Meltdown", which caught the eye of several independent record labels, culminating in the signing of the band with Independent Ear out of Chicago, Il. The CD came out April of 2013. The band also was recently highlighted on a Tribute album for rock legends, The Godz. L.A.K.covered the song Guaranteed from the Godz debut release. Guaranteed will be included on PSYCHOANALYZE, as well as a raucous version of The Beatles number one hit, "Hard Days Night".
While Rubber City Meltdown showed the rock world their potential and received great reviews, they chose Murphy to bring out the aggressive and dirtier side of the bands new offerings. Songs like the title track, Trainwreck, Dance, That Girl, Devil on my Heels, For the Girls, Time Wounds all Heels, Whiskey Drinking Fool, Tattooed and Scarred and Don't Let Me Down, show the bands influences which include, Motley Crue, Guns n Roses, AC/DC,Junkyard, Buckcherry and of course The Rolling Stones and the Beatles.
Producer Curran Murphy owns and operates, Custom Audio Mutations in Akron, Ohio. The Knights also loved the fact that the studio is a local studio and wanted to work with someone who has a worldwide reputation and also represents the local scene from which they are so proud to come from. Murphy who also builds custom guitars, tube amps and effect pedals puts his energy and intensity into everything he works on and he intends to put that focus,experience, intensity and drive in to the new L.A. Knights cd, PSYCHOANALYZE! Look for release in the early summer of 2015.
