SPV signs 42DECIBEL from Argentinia!
DEBUT "HARD ROCK'N'ROLL" OUT IN JUNE
Frontman Junior Figueroa’s voice brings to mind Bon Scott
They’re young and hungry for rock’n’roll, they come from Argentina and have recently shaken all the hottest clubs in and around Buenos Aires to their very foundations: 42 Decibel is the name of Steamhammer/SPV’s latest signing. Their debut album Hard Rock’n’Roll – the title says it all about their stylistic direction – has been scheduled for release on 24 June 2013 (Germany: 21 June 2013; US/Canada: 2 July 2013).
42 Decibel were founded in January 2010 by drummer Nicko Cambiasso and vocalist/guitarist Junior Figueroa. The band is completed by bassist Chris Towers and rhythm/slide guitarist Billy Bob Riley. 42 Decibel’s first 7-track demo saw the light of day in spring 2010 and defined the basis of their sound. Now the band are ready to present their first album Hard RockŽn`Roll, recorded with the support of sound engineer Patricio Claypole at the El Attic Studios and mastered by Justin Weis (Papa Roach, The Tubes) at San Francisco’s Trakworx Studios.
“We’re really happy and proud to sign with a label like SPV, and we’re grateful to Olly Hahn for his trust in our music,” Nicko Cambiasso enthuses, adding: “We also thank our great friend Herko Schmidt, who did so much to make this happen.”
SPV/Steamhammer product manager Olly Hahn sees great potential in his latest signing: “Much like AC/DC in their very early days, 42 Decibel ooze unbridled enthusiasm which immediately enthrals their fans. In addition, they have a fantastic frontman in vocalist Junior Figueroa, whose raw voice complements the songs perfectly. 42 Decibel are a definite must-hear!”
42 Decibel release a new video for the song "Rocker Soul" from their debut album "Hard Rock N´Roll".
42 Decibel have documented one thing beyond a doubt: traditional rock’n’roll is universal and stops neither at geographical borders nor current trends and fashions. The way this young band get down to business in the studio and live on stage brings to mind acts such as AC/DC, Airbourne, The Answer and Buckcherry. 42 Decibel sound like they might hail from Australia, the US, England or Scandinavia. But in fact the quartet stems from Argentina, where they have recently shaken all the hottest clubs in and around Buenos Aires to their very foundations. Their debut album Hard Rock’n’Roll is a classy, spirited rock pamphlet and were released last year as CD, 2LP and download.
