Earthride Teams Up With COC Bassist

Maryland-based doom rockers Earthride entered Sonic Wave Studios in Raleigh, N.C. over Labor Day weekend with producer producer/engineer Mike Dean (Corrosion of Conformity bassist) to begin recording their second release for L.A.'s Southern Lord Records.

"It's a good relationship," said Earthride vocalist Dave Sherman (Wretched, Spirit Caravan) of working with Dean. "We have a good rapport with Mike. Hopefully this will be one of the best releases of 2005."

Dean and Sherman got to know each other in 2001 when C.O.C. toured the United States with Spirit Caravan and their fellow Maryland residents in Clutch. Later, Dean and Spirit Caravan guitarist/vocalist Wino (St. Vitus, The Obsessed, Hidden Hand) contributed vocal tracks to Dave Grohl's Probot project, released earlier this year by Southern Lord.

Earthride's other members are guitarist Kyle Van Steinburg, bassist Rob Hampshire and drummer Eric Little (Internal Void).

When Dean asked Southern Lord chief Greg Anderson if any of his bands needed a producer, he mentioned Earthride.

"I was excited because of their connections to Spirit Caravan and Internal Void," Dean said. "I was even more excited when they set up their equipment and I heard the songs and realized it would be easy to make them sound tremendous because they already sounded tremendous."

Dean found time to work with Earthride during a break in C.O.C.'s schedule. Last month the band began recording its next release for Sanctuary Records with Galactic drummer Stanton Moore in his band's New Orleans studio. C.O.C. also recently completed recording their version of Lynyrd Skynyrd's "On the Hunt" for one of Sanctuary's upcoming Skynard tribute albums, working with longtime producer John Custer in his Raleigh studio and at Sonic Wave.

Earthride's last release for Southern Lord, "Taming of the Demons", was produced by Chris Koslowski, who's also worked with Pentagram, Spirit Caravan, Internal Void and The Obsessed. The band's first release was a self-produced, self-titled four-song EP/CD that came out in 2000 on its own Earth Brain label.

"I respect Earthride for their abilities and their connection to the history of heavy rock," said Dean. "Their influences run deep and far back."
