Jamsync Music recordiong artist Asphalt Valentine has rapped Installment 1 of the recording process on their upcoming fall release titled ‘Into The Red – Out Of The Black’. ‘Into The Red’ is the first installment for the EPX type project and is currently in the mixing stage. Asphalt Valentine recorded ‘Into The Red’ at 2 locations both in Atlanta, GA. Drums were recorded with Mike Froedge (Dreaded Marco, Black Label Society, DoubleDrive, Speed X) at Open Sky, while guitars, bass and vocals were recorded with Greg Bergdorf (Zebrahead) at Studio 32.
‘Into The Red – Out Of The Black’ is the followup to the bands debut ‘Strip Rock Roll‘. “The thought process behind the 2 part EPX series was that we wanted to come up with something different this time around. As as a team we came up with the EPX concept. What can we do that hasn’t already been done? What can we offer rock n’ roll fans that will peak their curiosity? I think the EPX series may be the solution. Put both packages together and you will have something unique and special.” – Bill Chavis, Jamsync Music
Installment 2 of the series ‘Out Of The Black’, is slated to begin the recording process later this summer and will be a vital extension of ‘Into The Red’.
Release dates and other details about the projects will be revealed soon. Check out the promo video below!

One of the cool bands that I was able to photo at Rock at the Range is Minneapolis, Minnesota’s New Medicine. If you haven’t checked this band out yet, you ought to give their CD, Race You To the Bottom a listen. It is a pretty cool blend of rock and pop, and has quite a few tunes worth checking out. You can check out all of the videos released for Race You to the Bottom below. Our photo gallery and slideshow from Rock On the Range is below as well.
