Legendary NYC rock powerhouse UNSANE has completed work on its long awaited new album, titled “WRECK”. The seventh full length recording of the band’s storied career will see a March 20, 2012 release date via Jello Biafra’s Alternative Tentacles label.

Recorded by the band and producer Andrew Schneider at Brooklyn’s Translator Audio (Pelican, Keelhaul, etc.), “WRECK” is an unfettered burst of pent up emotions and frustrations channeled into song and an unflinching glance into a type of life others probably should not lead.   From the shock and awe of the LP’s lead track “Rat” and the stunningly damaged “Decay” to the doom and gloom of the heavy handed “No Chance” and through to the transcendental brainwork of “Stuck”, UNSANE’s “WRECK” is darkly abrasive and poetic music delivered with a fearsome intensity.   A punishing, but ultimately tuneful album, realistic in subject matter and as engaging as it is abrasive, “WRECK” features UNSANE at its legendary best. Chris Spencer’s vocals and lyrics positively ache with fear and loathing (resembling the sound of a man trapped in the New York Subway system) while his searing Telecaster howl and pulverizing chords wreak havoc over Vincent Signorelli’s drums and Dave Curran’s muscular, thick as lava bass lines. UNSANE celebrates its 20th anniversary by delivering the darkest and most personal record of its celebrated career; “WRECK” is the band’s defining moment.
