Chris Epting of AOL‘s Noisecreep conducted an interview with ADLER, the new band led by former GUNS N’ ROSES drummer Steven Adler, last night (Monday, December 17) prior to the group’s first-ever Los Angeles-area concert at the House Of Blues in West Hollywood as the opening act for STEEL PANTHER. The six-minute clip, which includes performance footage, can be seen below.
ADLER‘s debut album, “Back From The Dead”, was released in North America on November 26 via New Ocean Media. The CD was recorded in Los Angeles with producer Jeff Pilson (FOREIGNER, DOKKEN) and was mixed by Jay Ruston (ANTHRAX, STONE SOUR). The effort consists of 11 tracks, ranging from adrenaline-pumping rockers (“Back From The Dead”, “Own Worst Enemy”, “Another Version Of The Truth”) to arena-rock anthems (“Good To Be Bad”, “Blown Away”) to powerful, heartfelt ballads (“Waterfall”, “Just Don’t Ask”). The album features guest appearances by Adler‘s former GUNS N’ ROSES bandmate Slash and ROB ZOMBIE/ex-MARILYN MANSON guitarist John 5.
ADLER is comprised of Adler, frontman Jacob Bunton (LYNAM, MARS ELECTRIC), guitarist Lonny Paul (ADLER’S APPETITE), and bassist Johnny Martin (CHELSEA SMILES).
