Implants (members of Strung Out, Pulley, No Use For A Name, The Tank (Brown Lobster Tank), ex-Face to Face, and ex-Death By Stereo) announced that their forthcoming EP will be released late this spring via Cyber Tracks, a label owned and operated by El Hefe (NOFX) and wife Jen Abeyta. The EP was originally supposed to be released last Summer but guess it was delayed. In other band news, the band has added Matt Riddle (Face to Face) to the band.
Implants guitarist/vocals, Rob Ramos talked about the addition of Matt Riddle:
“we have had some changes in the band on this EP. With Matt Riddle joining, and the musicianship he brings, I feel like we have no limitation on how progressive we can get. I can’t wait to play this stuff live.”
Cyber Tracks label owner, Jen Abeyta had this to say about the release:
“Hefe and I are so ecstatic to release another Implants album! This EP is beyond fulfilling …their debut album blew me away so much that I never thought it could be surpassed, but they definitely outdid themselves on this EP. I wish it was a full length …after listening to 5 tracks of pure shredding melodic punk, I’m left wanting more.”
The band’s forthcoming EP release will consist of 4 original tracks and one cover (Cheap Trick). Lead vocalist Ken Conte described the band’s excitement for the upcoming release:
“We are all really stoked on the way the band and these songs have progressed. And with the addition of Matt Riddle it feels like we have all the pieces to conquer just about anything.
To say we are happy with the EP is an understatement. We all worked our asses off, overcame some challenges in the middle of the process, but can say that we’ve created a record that we will look back on with pride.”
