Age of Despair Taps Producer Chris Hill To Record New Album

The newly completed lineup of AGE OF DESPAIR, featuring Shawn McCoy guitarist of CONFESSOR along side Brian Zuccaro (vocals), Marcus Williams (guitar), Ali Lugo (bass) and Abdala Saghir (drums), has tapped Chris Hill (JAM PAIN SOCIETY, DRILL 187, ACE FREHLEY) to produce the group's forthcoming studio album.

The band comments, "We think Chris is the next great producer to come out of the Raleigh area along side John Custer (CORROSION OF CONFORMITY, CRY OF LOVE, DAG) and Dick Hodgins (HOOTIE AND THE BLOWFISH, CONFESSOR). Our early report from the studio… The drums sound like cannons and the guitars are as heavy as tombstones grinding together. Absolutely brutal!"

The group has secured management and is shopping for a label and booking agent that will put the band to work. Shawn states, "We hope to tour non-stop through 2011 and beyond." AGE OF DESPAIR has scheduled a few one-off shows at Volume 11 in Raleigh, North Carolina on Sunday, March 7 with KITTIE & GOD FORBID and as direct support to OBITUARY on May 29.
