El Drugstore Announces Album Release

Following a colossal three year-long writing and pre-production process, New Jersey's instrumental freak attack trio, El Drugstore, has put the final touches on a new full-length.

Devised by the corrupted intellect of guitarist Kevin Conway (ex-East of the Wall), drummer Seth Rheam (East of the Wall), and bassist Rolando Alvarado, Keyport, New Jersey-based El Drugstore has been discharging mangled, aggro-technical metallic racket since 2008.

The band's debut recording, a split full-length with cohorts A Fucking Elephant, marked the inauguration of their conjoined independent label, Nefarious Industries in 2011.

With over forty-five minutes of bombast, El Drugstore is at full-mast on this debut full-length, "Plague Ship." The album was tracked at parts unknown by the band and cohort Chris Alfano (East of the Wall, Argonauts), and mixed and mastered by Kevin Antreassian at Backroom Studios.

The "Plague Ship" will set sail December 31st via Nefarious Industries, initially as a digital-only release, yet plans for it to manifest itself in the physical form are being drawn.

El Drugstore Working On New Album

Keyport, New Jersey-based rabid metal trio El Drugstore is currently in construction mode, demoing and preparing a debut full-length.

Featuring guitarist Kevin Conway (ex-East of the Wall), drummer Seth Rheam (East of the Wall), and bassist Rolando Alvarado, this Keyport, New Jersey-based outfit has been dropping a brew of aggro-technical metallic racket since 2008. The band's debut, a split full-length with cohorts A Fucking Elephant -- which marked the maiden release for both bands’ then newly-founded Nefarious Industries -- El Drugstore is now beyond balls-deep in the songwriting process for "Plague Ship," the band's first studio full-length.

The album will be recorded in the coming weeks, and is slated for a late Spring release, once again via Nefarious Industries. El Drugstore recently released a demo version of “Fascinating Underpants,” one of the mangled anthems set to be a part of "Plague Ship." The track was posted as an exclusive premiere via American Aftermath here.

Upcoming El Drugstore live shows are:

12/15/2012 Saint Vitus Bar - Brooklyn, NY w/ Behold The Arctopus, Ocrilim
1/15/2013 The Brighton Bar - Long Branch, NJ w/ Jar'd Loose, Hammer Fight, Toothgrinder
