LA’s Trigger Point has begun pre production on their new album tentatively titled “GIVING UP THE GHOST” with Producer (and Far/Revolution Smile) guitarist Shaun Lopez (Deftones, Will Haven, Demon Hunter) at the helm. Says vocalist Taylor Wallace, “We are all very excited about making this record. It pretty much captures everything we have been through in the last three years. The music is epic to say the least. We have been working on it just about everyday for the last year, and are finally ready to get in the studio and bring it to life.”
The band is set to begin recording on November 3rd at LA’s Bomb Shelter Studios.
Friday night the band will be headlining their last show of the year before going into the studio.

Louisville, Kentucky’s Velcro Pygmies have been playing and touring clubs in the south for a few years now.
American Muscle is the band’s second CD, and a pretty good one at that. I can hear some definite Def Leppard and Van Halen influences in the band’s tunes.
Fans of 80’s style hard rock are going to love American Muscle. There isn’t a bad song on the disc. American Muscle is filled with songs that have infectious sing along choruses, and heavy guitar riffs. This is an 80’s style glam metal CD disc that simply delivers!
This CD hasn’t left my playlist since I picked up! This CD reminds of an era where music was supposed to be fun. The Velcro Pygmies may not be original, but they most certainly do 80’s style hard rock right! I think most hard rock fans are going to love this disc.
The band also has a brand new website, VelcroPygmies.com. Go check them out, you will be glad you did!
The video below is for the song Don’t Call It Love! Enjoy!!
