Day in Rock Report for 08/20/2021

(hennemusic) Iron Maiden are streaming the track "Stratego" as the latest preview to their forthcoming album, "Senjutsu." Due September 3, the project was recorded at Guillaume Tell Studio in France in 2019 with producer Kevin Shirley.

"The setup there is perfect for our needs," explains Steve Harris. "The building used to be a cinema and has a really high ceiling so there's a great acoustic sound. We recorded this album in the same way we did 'The Book Of Souls' in that we'd write a song, rehearse it and then put it down together straight away while it was all fresh in our minds. (read more)

Washington D.C. indie rockers The Crystal Casino Band just released their new album, "Not About You", and to celebrate we asked the band to tell us about the title track. Here is the story:

Jarrod Hendricks, Lead Guitarist: It was about December 2019 when the first version of "Not About You" came to me. Around that time we had just wrapped recording our song "Lady Heart Attack," which was the first song I had ever written. When I came to the band with that song I had a basic song structure and only 75 percent of the chorus but was stuck on how to proceed. Luckily, Pete's been writing songs a lot longer than I have, so he picked up where I left off and made it into a much better song than I ever could have. With the success of writing a song but the failure of not being able to finish it, I set off to complete a song without anyone else's help, which was daunting for me at the time. (read more)

"Heartbreak Radio," the latest single off my new EP, Where I Run, is an ode to those sad, heartbreaking country songs we all know and love. You know, the ones when you change the dial to the country station, and it's "my dog died, my wife left me and my truck broke down!" (read more)
