Raleigh Metal Band “DRILL 187” Sign With TURKEY VULTURE RECORDS, Set To Release New EP Album!!

DRILL group shot

Drill 187, the Raleigh based metal band, has signed with indie label Turkey Vulture Records and is set to release their new album “From The Ashes of Man” locally on May 9th, 2014, with international digital release to be announced soon. This will be the band’s first release on their new record label and will be distributed digitally worldwide through Turkey Vulture Records/Bungalo Records/Universal Music Group Distribution/Caroline. The band’s previous record “The Faceless Majority” was released independently through distributor Southwest Wholesale Distribution on Sept. 3rd, 2002 and went on to sell almost 5000 copies.

Fast-forward to 2012, which saw the members of Drill 187 join forces again to begin working on new material. Welcoming back former drummer Bobby Stansbury and adding new guitarist Carlos Ameri along with original members Jason Lilley (vocals), Matt Frederick (bass) and Ron Dalgo (guitar), the band began writing relentlessly. Combining the new blood with the writing prowess of the original members helped bring a renewed passion and energy to the album. Though “Faceless” received tons of rave reviews, “From The Ashes of Man” is clearly a progressive step forward for the band in songwriting and aggression. The new album was recorded at Schaefer Sound Productions in Raleigh, NC. from February 2013 to June 2013 and was produced by members Jason Lilley and Ron Dalgo, engineered/co-produced by Thomas Clark, and mixed/mastered by Jamie King. A number of special guest performances also highlight the new record including guitar and vocal performances by former Drill guitarist/writer Jason Ussery and percussion performances by Reed Mullin of Corrosion of Conformity on “Rise”.

With renewed ambition, writing strong new music and the same meticulous DIY work ethic that took them to the top before, DRILL 187 is once again a band on the rise and coming soon to a stage near you!!

“From The Ashes of Man” Track Listing:
1. More Than Man
2. Crush
3. Crucified
4. Hate Smiles
5. Wake
6. Rise

Drill 187 “From The Ashes of Man” will be available at shows and on the Turkey Vulture Records website on May 9th, 2014.

Turkey Vulture Records has just inked a deal with the Orlando, Florida based hard-rock band NU ERA who draws its influence from many genres including metal, hip-hop, hardcore, and nu-metal styles. The band has just finished their first full-length album to be released on Turkey Vulture Records entitled “Dialysis” which has already seen airplay on several national radio stations. Nu Era has shared the stage with countless national acts including Avenged 7fold, 3 Days Grace, and Sevendust just to name a few.

What makes this powerful group unique is the unwillingness to conform to standards in any one specific genre. The band defines itself as individuals coming together and combining many different styles. The riffs heard on the new album are quite “metal-esque” at times, and at other points completely lean towards the nu-metal genre, which is complimented by the rhymes over the top. Melodic singing, hard screaming, turntable scratches, movie samples, and even President Obama can be heard on the band’s albums and live performances.

Nu Era have developed a constantly growing fan base and plan on doing extensive touring in support of the new release. The new album will be available online everywhere through Turkey Vulture Records/Bungalo Records/Universal Music Group Distribution.

Turkey Vulture Records would like to announce the signing of the rising South Dakota rock band CORE. Both parties are excited in this venture and are very excited in working together. Core will be entering T.V.R. Recording Studios with Turkey Vulture Records label owner and producer Jason Z. for the yet to be titled album which will begin in early 2013 and set for release and distribution through Turkey Vulture Records/Bungalo Records/Universal Music Group Distribution. Jason Z. states “It’s been a roller coaster of emotions throughout the negotiations and signing of this deal due to some line-up changes, but everything is very solid now and we are looking very forward to getting into the studio to begin tracking the new record!!”

CORE is not your average hard rock band. Hailing from South Dakota they are sure to be the next big thing to come out of the Midwest. For fans of Staind, Sevendust and Papa Roach, CORE approach songwriting honestly and are dedicated passionate musicians. This powerhouse quartet provides a tight rhythm section that produces a brutal sound that is balanced by tender yet powerful vocal harmonies reminiscent of Layne Staley. Equal parts heavy riffs and delicate acoustics; CORE’s music is emotionally charged and unique. The band has shared the stage with countless national acts such as SHINEDOWN, SEVENDUST, and BUCKCHERRY just to name a few.

CORE has a devoted and solid national following. The band has performed at numerous shows in support of their highly successful sophomore CD “St. Judas Day Parade” released in July 2010. The singles “Dig”, “Live Forever”, and “You’re So Fake” have received major airplay through out the Midwest U.S. on active rock and college radio stations. CORE’s debut album “We All Fall Down” earned the band rave reviews from TAXI & cdreview.com, citing the songs “Eisoptrophobia”, “Confession”, and “Calling John Coffey” as favorites.

Watch for great things to come from CORE in the near future!!!
