“Scatterbrain” features 13 brand new tracks and was recorded at the Steakhouse Studio in North Hollywood California where the band once again tapped Chris “The Wizard” Collier (Flotsam & Jetsam/Prong/Last In Line) to engineer the new effort.
From the infectious riff of the album opener “Scatterbrain” to the outro of “Angel,” KXM have created something truly special and musically diverse. Songs like “Breakout,” “Calypso,” and “True Deceivers” are sonically different from each other taking the listener on a musical journey. Scatterbrain is thematically a darker record than the debut. The album builds upon the developed KXM rock sound but this time includes some different dynamics drawing inspiration from prog, ska, punk and metal. Through it all, it remains undeniably KXM.
Speaking about the recording process for KXM’s new record, vocalist dUg Pinnick comments, “We wrote all the songs right on the spot and immediately recorded them, everyone doing his part and no one telling the other one what or how to play, just like the previous album!”. Drummer Ray Luzier adds “We wanted to use the same formula as the 1st KXM record…book studio time, come in fresh every day with a new idea, run with it and not over think anything” .
Basically it was “Record-topia”, we showed up in the studio, camped out with a bunch of gear and let the tape roll!” states guitarist George Lynch. “Just like the first album, no pre-production, no rehearsal, no pre-written songs, every song was written as a product of an in-studio jam session!”
On the topic of the musical direction and overall vibe of the new album Ray recently told Modern Drummer Magazine; “It's a darker record than the first one, it's really heavy and it’s very soulful with dUg's voice leading the way". Ray further describes the direction of the new album, “There is some straight ahead rock, bits of prog, ska and tons of dynamics, there is a lot involved but it still sounds like KXM!” Official release date for KXM “Scatterbrain” is March 17, 2017.
