• ¡Forward, Russia! will be releasing their second album, Life Processes, on Monday 14th April. This will be their first album for Cooking Vinyl, having previously released their material – a much-admired debut album, Give Me A Wall, in 2006 following a series of equally respected singles, two of which were Top 40 - through guitarist Whiskas’, Dance To The Radio label.
• Give Me A Wall sold 10,000 copies in the first month and is now at a respectable 20,000
• The album will be preceded by a single, Breaking Standing on Monday 7th April. It will be available on CD, 2 x 7” and digital download.
• Regarding the decision to leave Dance To The Radio, Whiskas explains, “It was a joy to be involved on a massive creative level with this album and with so much investment in that aspect of the record, it seemed wrong and I felt unable to plough that attention into it's release - so as a whole band we thought it would be best to seek an independent outlet for Life Processes. With Cooking Vinyl so enthusiastic about the album, we've felt quite comfortable throughout the change”
• Life Processes is a considerable advancement from the scratchily acerbic, post-hardcore histrionics of its predecessor, and has been shaped with the assistance of renowned producer Matt Bayles (The Blood Brothers, Mastodon, Minus The Bear, Pearl Jam), in Seattle. The 11 tracks find the band honing their eruptive sound, resulting in a cohesive, intricate and expertly layered experience. “People may be surprised by some of the quieter, prettier parts; some of the heavier parts will raise eyebrows, too,” says singer Tom Woodhead. “‘Spanish Triangles’ is the song that will be mentioned most with regard to our ‘new direction’.”
