Chris Volz To Tour In Support of Solo Effort, "Redemption"

Chris Volz, formerly of FLAW and the recently-disbanded Five.Bolt.Main, will kick off his tour this weekend in support of his solo album, “Redemption,” which was just released on September 11th on Rock Ridge Music. So far, dates are planned through the month of October with more to come. Joining Volz in his touring band are: Taz Marazz, drums; Johnny Pisano, bass (who played on the album); and Jack Frost, guitar.

In commenting on “Redemption,” Volz says: “The lyrics on this record are very personal. I don’t sing about anything I haven’t felt or don’t mean. Personally, this record was my turn to grab the reins. This album is, with no offense meant to any of my former bandmates, the chance to do everything I’ve always wanted to do.” The recording process took two weeks, the fastest recording experience of Volz’s career. “I have never recorded that expediently. The musicians we worked with were extremely professional and productive. It all flowed very well and everything fell right into place.”

Joining Volz in the studio for said recording experience were Matt Chiaravalle (Kittie, Crossbreed, Warren Zevon) and Jason Spiewak (Five.Bolt.Main) in both production capacity and as players on the record. Also performing on the record were: Danny Schuler (Biohazard), Chris Vitali (Orange 9mm), Johnny Pisano (Ryan Adams, Marky Ramone, Jesse Malin), and Rich Smalley (The NightRats, Looker).
