Twenty years after seizing power in Austin, Texas, rock-roll battering squad Broken Teeth is poised to throw its hardest punch ever after signing with Megadeth bassist David Ellefson and former Corporate Punishment President Thom Hazaert at their powerhouse EMP Label Group. The label will issue Broken Teeth‘s new album 4 on the Floor on April 21, 2017.
“Thom and I both have a lot of history with Jason (McMaster), and we are both huge fans of Dangerous Toys and Watchtower. He is one of the greatest and most versatile hard rock vocalists around, and that is definitely showcased in Broken Teeth. We are extremely proud to welcome them to the EMP Family, and release their killer new album.”
“Obviously, we have the utmost respect for Dave as both a musician and promoter of hard rock music,” said Broken Teeth vocalist Jason McMaster. “I have some history with Dave and Thom, and couldn’t be happier to join forces with them as we prepare to unleash the latest chapter of Broken Teeth music.”
Once described as “a pissed-off AC/DC,” Broken Teeth has evolved into a hard-rock/heavy metal bomb blast built on the swaggering boogie of bad-boy blues. Not surprisingly, 4 on the Floor continues the band’s gritty legacy with odes to the rebellious, forbidden love of rock-n-roll (the slow-stomping “Sinful”); standing proud as a loner (the riotous burner, “House of Damnation”); life on the rock-n-roll highway to hell (the bluesy shuffle of “Borrowed Time”); and the ultimate salute to legendary Motorhead main man, Lemmy Kilmister (the appropriately rollicking “Never Dead,” which was written before Lemmy’s passing).
“We don’t really do tributes, but Lemmy and the kind of rock-n-roll he did is what we’re all about,” said Broken Teeth guitarist Jared Tuten. “It just felt right for us to immortalize him forever” (adapted from Press Release)
