Dragpipe Set To Take Their Unique Style Of "Gasoline Rock" To The Road

Bookmark and Share

September 27, 2002 -- A new genre of music has invaded the music scene, and DRAGPIPE-Jai Diablo (lead vocals), Pete Barrera (drums), Ritchie "Slick" Garcia (guitar), Gino "Sleevs" Depinto (guitar), Monty (guitar) and Jeno (bass)-are the proud pioneers. 

When asked by Shoutweb.com to describe their chaotic blend of rock & roll, here's how lead singer Jai Diablo responded: "Well we're very obnoxious people and that comes through in the music. It's punk, heavy, extreme, it's just 'gasoline rock.'"

The band will be bringing this explosive new sound to cities all across the east coast tour dates in support of their highly-charged critically acclaimed MUSIC FOR THE LAST DAY OF YOUR LIFE (which was released August 27 on Interscope Records). 

Kicking off September 27 in Asbury Park, NJ, this particular leg of the tour will last throughout October. The band is expecting to be on tour throughout the remainder of 2002 and well into 2003.

This isn't their first taste of the road and it certainly won't be their last. Most recently they appeared as part of the "Locobazooka!" tour with Filter, Sevendust, Nonpoint, Mushroomhead and Earshot, and they've played shows with Monster Magnet, they've headlined a number of their own club dates and they were one of the highlights of last year's CMJ Music Marathon convention. 

"Simple Minded," the explosive first single from MUSIC FOR THE LAST DAY OF YOUR LIFE, made an impressive introduction to the U.S. radio airwaves a few weeks ago as the #4 Most Added song at Active Rock stations. It's currently #36 on Radio & Records' "Active Rock" chart and is continuing its rise to the top. A video for "Simple Minded" was recently shot in Los Angeles with Martin Weisz (Korn, Filter) at the director's helm and is currently in rotation on MTV2 and MuchMusic USA.

For the album, DRAGPIPE enlisted producer Dave Sardy (Slayer, Marilyn Manson, Bush) to work behind the boards. Before they joined up with him, the band spent some time in pre-production with ex-Marilyn Manson bassist Twiggy Ramirez and ex-Metallica bassist Jason Newsted, who was originally on tap to produce the album, but was ultimately unable to do it because of timing conflicts with his new band Echobrain.

MUSIC FOR THE LAST DAY OF YOUR LIFE has been generating critical acclaim as well, including Revolver, Metal Edge, Alternative Press and the U.K.'s Kerrang! Magazine, who've each proclaimed DRAGPIPE "a band to watch in 2002." And here's what Jim Fusilli of the Wall Street Journal proclaimed in a recent album review:

"The members of the New Jersey-based band Dragpipe count Bad Brains and Jane's Addiction among their influences. On their debut disc, MUSIC FOR THE LAST DAY OF YOUR LIFE, they show that they're more than imitators. Their three-guitar attack creates a boisterous platform for vocalist Jai Diablo. Producer Dave Sardy, who's worked with Nine Inch Nails and Marilyn Manson, wisely lets chaos reign. Add to the relentless music the poise and swagger of a veteran band, and the result is a frenetic hard-rock disc that attacks the listener from its opening track."
--Jim Fusilli, Wall St. Journal, September 19, 2002
