 MAYLENE AND THE SONS OF DISASTER Unveils New Song “Open Your Eyes”

 ALTERNATIVE PRESS Premieres Exciting Track From Hard Rock Band’s New Album, Out September 27

Hard rock innovators MAYLENE AND THE SONS OF DISASTER will release their long awaited new album Maylene and the Sons of Disaster: IV on September 27 via Ferret Music.  Produced by Brian Virtue (Jane’s Addiction, Deftones, Audioslave), the LP shines a spotlight on the celebrated band’s sleek songcraft, virtuosic prowess and depth of musical identity.  Today, AP premieres the new MAYLENE track “Open Your Eyes” which can be heard now at this location.


In additional band news, Revolver recently premiered the new MAYLENE track “In Dead We Dream” and talked with MATSOD vocalist Dallas Taylor.  Check out “In Dead We Dream” now at this location.  

“As humans, we play things so safe and everything “makes sense” or is “figured out” and is how it’s supposed to be,” said Taylor.  “I hope it will make people question their lives and how they do things, and make people realize what they have.  It is definitely a new band now with a new drive.  This is the most serious thing we’ve ever done and the most grown-up record I’ve ever made in my life.  I think it will surprise a lot of people who were into Maylene before.  It is a very dark record, but it’s the most truthful and heartfelt thing I have done in my life.”

The striking cover art for Maylene and the Sons of Disaster: IV was designed by Forefathers Group (Children of Bodom, In Flames, Between the Buried and Me).  On the record, the band continues its focused conceptual and lyrical bent which plots MAYLENE as renegade outlaws from a 1920’s gangster / prohibition era real-life crime family.  The record’s gritty musical shootouts are filled with intricate guitar riffing and whiskey drenched grooves, while the lyrics take your imagination back to a time when the exploits of gangs of criminals gripped the American people and press.

The track listing for Maylene and the Sons of Disaster: IV is as follows:

1.) In Dead We Dream
2.) Save Me
3.) Faith Healer (Bring Me Down)
4.) Open Your Eyes
5.) Killing Me Slow
6.) Taking on Water
7.) Fate Games
8.) Come for You
9.) Never Enough
10.) Cat’s Walk
11.) Drought of ’85
12.) Off to the Laughing Place

Tireless road dogs, MAYLENE AND THE SONS OF DISASTER is in the midst of a 30 city U.S. tour that will run through September 3.  Fresh from tours with both Clutch and Protest the Hero, the pre-release run will bring the band’s hard-hitting live show to both new fans and loyal followers each evening.  A full listing of upcoming MATSOD live dates can be found below.

     MAYLENE AND THE SONS OF DISASTER features Dallas Taylor (vocals), Chad Huff (guitar), Jake Duncan (guitar / vocals) and Brad Lehmann (bass).
