After a successful 2012 playing gigs up and down the country, several festival slots and plenty of airplay, the time has come for Kodiak Jack to move on…
The debut album Your Death: My Glory received critical acclaim across the board with Room Thirteen calling it “an album that sounds truly epic”, Uber Rock declared it “a top notch debut album, chock-a-block with catchy anthems” and Classic Rock magazine stated “Their debut is assured and urgent”… That however was then, and this is very much now.
January 2013 will see Kodiak Jack returning to the studio to record their sophomore effort and confident that they can eclipse their debut with their best songs to date.
We are very proud to announce the band will be recording the new album at J Street Studios in Sacramento, California and that Brian Wheat, bassist with US rock giants Tesla will be taking on production duties.
Having worked with the likes of Deftones and Papa Roach as well as Tesla and Soul Motor, we are excited to be able to follow in the footsteps of some of the USA’s finest exports.
Brian has become a fan of Kodiak Jack over the past year, so when the opportunity to work with him came up we all naturally jumped at the chance. With his experience on both sides of the mixing desk combined with his ear for a rock anthem we couldn’t wish for a better choice to lead Kodiak Jack to the next level.
Brian will be coming over to the UK for a week of pre-production before we head over to the States to begin the recording process. Ahead of this Kodiak Jack will be playing at the Deco in Portsmouth on Saturday 19th January and unveiling some of the new tracks from the album for the very first time. We may just be able to get Brian along to attend as well…
Recording begins on the 27th January for four weeks, during this time we will be filming a documentary of the sessions and there will be daily blogs from members of the band so you can keep up with the progress of the album.
Kodiak Jack and Angry Badger Records would like to thank everyone for their on-going support and look forward to being able to share the new material with you all very soon.
