Metalunderground.com has obtained the exclusive premiere of an acoustic video for Egypt Central's hit single and title track, "White Rabbit." The video was shot in the Atlantic Records Studios in New York City and puts the band's songwriting and musicianship front and center without the glossy production of today's mainstream metal.

Egypt Central’s new album, "White Rabbit," came out on May 31, 2011 on Fat Lady Music/ILG. Produced by Skid Mills (Saving Abel, 12 Stones), "White Rabbit" is the follow-up to 2008’s self-titled debut, which reached #8 on the Billboard “Heatseekers” chart. The 12-song set features heavy riffs, lyrics from the soul and strong melodic hooks. Threaded throughout this collection of songs is a story of consequences that occur when one accepts or declines the invitation from the fictionalized character of the “White Rabbit.” A comic strip created by bassist Joey Chicago depicts the story in more detail and can be found in the CD booklet.

“We knew we had solid songs, but when the opportunity came to work with Skidd, we found the person that could not only make a great sounding record, but also bring the best out of us,” states lead singer John Falls. “We had a lot of growing to do as men and the time was right to give our fans what they deserved and what we knew we were capable of…Kick Ass Rock!” Adds Joey Chicago, “Collectively, this is the best group of songs we have ever written.”

No? These guys are pretty mainstream sounding, but I rather like the acoustic take.
