Atreyu have filmed a 5-part video series documenting the recording process of their new album, Lead Sails Paper Anchor, due out August 28th. Atreyu teamed with producer John Feldmann (The Used, Good Charlotte) on the follow-up to A Death-Grip On Yesterday. The third and fourth installments of the video series take a look at bassist Mark McKnight’s approach to his bass tracking and back-up vocals, while the fifth installment focuses around lead guitarist Dan Jacobs melting his fret board throughout his recording session on Lead Sails Paper Anchor.

Earlier this week, I found more on Lacey online.
No, it isn’t another porn star this time. Lacey Conner, one of the 10 finalists on Rock of Love, is a singer of the Industrial band Nocturne. Check out their myspace page here.
Lacy also has a video on You Tube that was released in 2006, for her song, This Thing Called Love. Another video is online with her perfoming the song (don’t laugh) “Whore”, with her band Nocturne.

There were a couple of videos on MTV for the songs Shot Gun Sally and Her Monkey, but this release got lost in a sea other big hair rock that was released at the time. Kicked & Klawed is a very solid release that is often over looked.
Lead Singer, Joel Ellis reminds me a lot of a young Vince Neil. Takashi “Jam” O’Hashi proves to be a very solid guitarist. Not surprisingly, the music isn’t too much of a stretch past Motley Crue’s music, but it is a very good listen. My favorite tracks include Shot Gun Sally, Nine Lives, Her Monkey, and Evil Angel.
Shot Gun Sally
Singer Joel Ellis, still maintains catsinboots.com, but is not recording any new music today. Drummer Randy Meers last turned up in band called Trampled Underfoot.
Guitarist Takashi “Jam” O’Hashi has been releasing solo CD’s in Japan.
Kicked and Klawed has been out of print for several years now, and has been pulling down twenty to thirty dollars on Ebay each time it shows. It is a solid sleaze metal disc that is still worth seeking out.
