Spanish hard rock bruisers and Listenable Records have announced a November 20 North American release date for the band's newest record, Maximum Rock 'n' Roll.
Popular for their active touring schedule, electrifying shows, and being rooted in the 70s, following their highly successful 2011 album High Decibels, '77 walked out from the studio with a third album entitled Maximum Rock 'n' Roll. The band's strongest work to date, Maximum Rock 'n' Roll was recorded at Gutterview Recorders, in Stockholm from March 17 - 28 and was produced by Fred Estby and Nicke Andersson. It was mastered by Hoffe at Cosmos Mastering, Stockholm.
Maximum Rock and Roll is definitely an album title that speaks for itself. The band comments on the album's development: "We tried to harden the style and sound we achieved with High Decibels with even more powerful riffs and catchy choruses. This is an honest album, '77 doing what we do best, play together rock and roll songs. We kept expanding the sound of the band though, 'Jazz it Up' or 'Don't you Scream' are good examples , as they are really different songs and something we've never approached before. Another example of this will to bring the band's sound to new shores is 'You Bore Me,' a song featuring (lead guitarist) LG on vocals for the first time on record."
"We obviously wrote music in typical '77 fashion such as "Down and Dirty" or "Stay away from Water." Tunes that will make you bang your head and raise your fist in the air while singing the choruses. Once more we recorded live in the studio, supervised by Fred Estby this time behind the mics and mixing desk, and we are really happy with the sound we got: no tricks, no FX! Just Maximum Rock and Roll played as loud as possible!"
