Corporate Punishment has announced the signing of Orange County’s NEVER ENOUGH (aka N3V3R 3N0U6H), the new project featuring Eighteen Visions’ guitarist (and ex-Throwdown vocalist/ Death by Stereo guitarist) Keith Barney and Drummer Trevor Friedrich, and Lylah Vocalist/Guitarist Norman Matthew.
The band will release their self produced, as-yet-untitled, debut EP on 9/11 via Corporate Punishment/Koch.
Said Guitarist/Producer Barney, "N3 is an outlet for all the love, rage and sadness in our lives. We know there are people out there that are just like us, people who still truly care about what's going on in the world around them and not just what's right in front of them."
On differences from his past project Barney adds, "lyrically we touch on politics and some other things which never happened in 18v. It's more message and idea driven, really trying to connect with people. There are songs that hit every spectrum of emotions - heavy and pissed, quiet and personal. It’s really important to me that people don’t just see this as an 18V spin-off."
As for the numbers, "everything is based in numbers- population, salaries, status, polls. Numbers represent a lot of the bad things in the world and the le tters represent communication and the things we need more of. People just can't seem to fucking get enough. Can't kill enough. Can't steal enough. Can't get thin enough. Can't get rich enough. You name it and people want more of it."
Ignite has postponed their upcoming European tour with Death By Stereo, which was slated to run from February 15th until March 10th.

As soon as we have any news on when the European dates will be re-scheduled we will post them on our website and Myspace immediately."

The group has confirmed that original members drummer Jarrod Alexander (A Static Lullaby, Suicide File) and guitarist Jim Miner will appear on the new album.
