Trouble The Distortion Field on LP
Chicago metal legends Trouble return with their first album since 2007's Simple Mind Condition. The album entitled The Distortion Field features 13 tracks and will be released by FRW Music. The Distortion Field makes history in the Trouble camp as it marks the band's acquisition of new lead vocalist, Kyle Thomas of Exorder and Floodgate fame.
Trouble founder and guitarist Rick Wartell comments on the new addition, "Kyle is one of the most impressive singers I've ever heard, and by far the most extraordinary singer I've ever had the pleasure of working with. He's got incredible range, incredible power, and an incredible knowledge of Trouble, as he's been a fan for 20-something years. We've known him forever, and he innately understands what Trouble is about. He's like the perfect guy to come in and do this job. It's awesome."
Veteran music producer Bill Metoyer is once again lending his expertise, having previously worked with the band on The Skull and Trouble, both Metal Blade releases.
"Musically, I think this album is a true Trouble record," states Wartell. "In the early days, we used to just write what we felt and didn't really care about what anyone said. We just wrote heavy riffs and played our music our way. But outside influences can kind of get a hold of you and start telling you what to do. When we were writing this album, the thinking was, we don't care what anybody thinks.
He adds, "We're going to write what we write. So this is basically a return to our roots, while combining some reflections of our band's long history as well. With the two different music writers, Bruce and myself, we have a slight variation in our writing; Bruce has more of a '70s groove to his writing, and I'm more the old school doomy metal thing. And when you put it together, you get Trouble."
