ART OF ANARCHY NEW SINGLE TEASER, FIRST LIVE SHOW WITH SCOTT STAPP IN OCTOBER
— Art Of Anarchy (@artofanarchy) September 9, 2016
After it was reported earlier this year that ex-Creed vocalist Scott Stapp would fill Scott Weiland’s role as the singer of Art of Anarchy, the band has begun picking up the pieces by announcing it will play a live show in New York at the Gramercy Theater on October 27th. They’ve also released a teaser of a new single “The Madness”.
In an interview with Alternative Press two weeks earlier, Stapp mentioned a new single would be released in October plus a new album on Another Century Records would follow early next year. He described it as “A perfect mixture of all the bands each member has come from. It’s like Disturbed meets Guns N’ Roses meets Creed.”
Art of Anarchy’s one album, released last year, has Scott Weiland’s stamp all over it from its passionate melodic power ballads like “’Til the Dust Is Gone” and “Get on Down”, to its more metallic moments like “Small Batch Whiskey”, but it also retains a Guns N’ Roses feel due to the influence of the album’s producer, guitarist Bumblefoot. That combination works well for many of its songs. Scott Weiland was an enormous loss in many ways, and difficult to overcome, but the band are ready to release new music. Below is an excerpt of what’s to come…
