Relapse Records signs Car Bomb

Official press release: Relapse Records has officially announced the signing of Long Island, NY's Car Bomb. Car Bomb (Michael Dafferner – vocals, Greg Kubacki – guitar, Jon Modell – bass and Elliot Hoffman – drums) was formed out of the dissolution of Dafferner and Kubacki's previous band NECK and have spent the past few years fine-tuning their brand of wildly progressive, technical style of heavy music. Modell also previously played as a touring member of Soilent Green. Car Bomb has played with bands such as Psyopus, Cryptopsy, and Most Precious Blood as well as at the Crumbsuckers reunion show earlier this year. Car Bomb's track "Solid Grey' also appeared on The Hardcore Street CD Volume 2 sampler alongside Hatebreed, Body Count and more. Car Bomb will also pair up with Burnt By The Sun for a split 7" release. The split 7" features the Car Bomb tracks "M^6" and "Pieces of You", the first new material from the band since the release of their self-titled demo, as well as the first new material from Burnt By The Sun for over three years. The 7" will surface in the fall via Relapse. "M^6" can be heard online. Additionally, Car Bomb have recently completed work on their first ever music video for the track “M^6”. The video was shot by Jeremy Jackson and the Filmcore crew (Unearth, Cannibal Corpse, As I Lay Dying, Brian Posehn) in New York. A preview of the video can be viewed here.

Neck was waaaaay better. Should My Fist Eye still amazes me. Unfortunately, the last Neck album AND Car Bomb pale in comparison.

That's pretty awesome that they're covering a Jewel song for their split.

RobertRedford 10/24/2006 9:14:19 PM

Relapse should have saved Neck. That band had so much potential. Though the last Neck album was a slight disappointment.

I likey this band.

methmouth 10/25/2006 8:04:36 AM

sometimes, i think bands need to stop thinking so much and just play some music... that being said, i secretly like this.

WORSTGAYHEAD 10/25/2006 9:12:53 AM

this band is good

burzum 10/25/2006 11:35:58 AM

Meh, surprised that Relapse signed them. I've never heard Neck, but CarBomb kinda just sounds like Pysopus, Mesuggah, Ion Dissonance, and Corprogayo all pooled into one.

burzum 10/25/2006 11:36:46 AM

I'll hold out to here more as i have only heard 1 track.

Lilykoto 10/25/2006 2:44:18 PM

Good job Greg!! This is awesome.
