NARCOTIC WASTELAND Posts Lyric Video For “The Shackles Of Sobriety”Monday, 13th January 2014
NACROTIC WASTELAND – the new band featuring NILE guitarist/vocalist Dallas Toler-Wade – have posted the lyric video for “The Shackles of Sobriety.” NARCOTIC WASTELAND’s debut album will be released digitally on Wednesday, January 15 and will be made available via the band’s web site as well as iTunes, Spotify and Amazon. Physical copies of the CD will also be available the following week on the group’s web site.
NARCOTIC WASTELAND started as a side project Dallas had been working the past few years when he was not touring or in the writing/studio mode with NILE. “The more songs I completed for Narcotic Wasteland, the more I wanted to put a full band lineup together,” said Dallas Toler-Wade.
Dallas asked longtime friend Edwin Rhone (lead guitar/vocals) if he was interested, which he was. They both had played in some metal bands together in the early to mid-1990’s. Edwin had later recommended Chris (“Lutachrist”) Dupre for bass/vocals.
Dallas stated, “Chris came in and not only knew his parts, but owned them with lots of attitude. So the only thing left was finding a drummer. After trying out several drummers from all over the states over two years, my band mate in NILE, George Kollias, recommended Erik Schultek. Erik did not only nail the material, but fit very well to the style and sound of the music.”
