For BENEATH THE SCARS, the New Orleans band joined forces, once again, with producer Skidd Mills (Saving Abel, Skillet, Saliva), who had previously worked with 12 STONES on 2007’s ANTHEM FOR THE UNDERDOG. The first single, “Infected,” mixed by Johnny K (3 Doors Down, Disturbed, Staind), is spinning on Active Rock stations nationwide and is available for download on iTunes and Amazon. Fans who pre-order the album from band’s official website (www.12stones.com) will have early download access to six songs. The rest of the album will then be made available on May 22.
A lyric video for “Infected” can be seen here: http://bit.ly/A5Jv2y. As singer Paul McCoy explains, “The song was written about the messed up state of the world. It speaks about how crazy these times are, and about being fed up with the chaos and hatred.”
