HourCast to Release State Of Disgrace On Alkamedia Records

Boston, Massachusetts' HourCast is readying their latest work, "State Of Disgrace," for a June 6, 2006 release via Alkamedia Records. HourCast combines elements of hard rock and metal with a distinct electronic influence. "We had no preconceptions as to what the band would sound like," says vocalist Patrick McBride. According to the press release, the members of HourCast – Mcbride, drummer Jerry Clews, guitarist David Henriquez and bassist David Sullivan - have combined their varied influences to create a unique sound that incorporates the heavy flavor of Deftones and Tool with the dark electronic atmosphere of Nine Inch Nails and Depeche Mode.

Not being signed to a label could serve as a liability to some bands, but not HourCast. "We didn’t have a label telling us what to do and that allowed us to add variety and flavor to the album," says McBride. HourCast is a band looking to gain ground in the current music scene. "Myspace and live shows are definitely helping us to build a fan base," says McBride.

The track listing for HourCast's "State Of Disgrace" comprises:

This life
God Failed
Smash Up
Almost Like Life
3rd Of July
Memories And Lies
