METAL SUCKS STREAMING NEW 3 SONG

Metal Sucks is hosting an exclusive premiere of 3's latest single "React". The track is taken from 3's new album The Ghost You Gave to Me which will be released October 11th via Metal Blade Records. Head over to Metal Sucks and get a first listen to "React" at http://www.metalsucks.net/2011/09/19exclusive-track-premiere-3s-react/


3 has completed work on their new album, The Ghost You Gave to Me. The album was recorded at Applehead Studios (Coheed and Cambria, Morningwood, Straylight Run) in Woodstock, NY. This is the band's sixth studio album since 1999 and is a massive step forward for the group. The 3 trademarks are intact - many musical peaks and valleys, bright and uplifting chorus's alongside dark and heavy passages powered by Gartdrumm's aggressive drumming and the acoustic/electric guitar duo of Joey Eppard and Billy Riker. The Ghost You Gave to Me is 3 at their most inspired.

Following the release of Revisions and after several tours with Porcupine Tree and an epic run on the first Progressive Nation Tour with Dream Theater, Opeth and Between the Buried and Me, 3 returnedhome brimming with inspiration. Joey Eppard, Billy Riker, Daniel Grimsland and The Gartdrumm immediately began creating demos of ideas that would evolve into The Ghost You Gave to Me. It wasn't long before the songs took on a life of their own. The band found themselves growing out of the standard rock compositional format into something more cinematic in nature. Joey Eppard adds: "The songs told us where to go and the instrumentation followed. We knew this record would be our most progressive but it would be on our terms, and in our own way. As always songwriting and melody are the driving forces behind the sounds capes we generate. I think the biggest challenge was to rise to the occasion lyrically with so many musical scene changes. What I found was that I had to let go and allow the words and melody to be as creative and original as the music, if not more so. In a progressive situation this can be time consuming and indeed the bulk of my efforts were focused on exceeding my own lyrical standards. For example, "Only Child," an eight minute epic that traverses a myriad of musical scenes has enough great lyrics for half a record.

The new single, Numbers can be heard now at metalblade.com/3. The Ghost You Gave to Me can be pre-ordered now at the Metal Blade webstore with an exclusive t-shirt HERE and on iTunes HERE. The cover art was done by the talented Colin Marks (http://www.rain-song.co.uk/).
