ENUFF Z'NUFF Announces New Studio Album 'Brainwashed Generation' Release Single "Fa
ENUFF Z'NUFF will release its new album, "Brainwashed Generation", on July 10 via Frontiers Music Srl. The follow-up to 2018's "Diamond Boy" is described in a press release as "a diverse collection of songs that demonstrate the progression of musical styles in the ENUFF Z'NUFF catalog, all while retaining the undercurrent that has kept them a loyal fanbase since the '80s." The LP also features guest appearances from original frontman and guitarist Donnie Vie ("Strangers In My Head") as well as Mike Portnoy (SONS OF APOLLO) and Daxx Nielsen (CHEAP TRICK).
Now centered around bass player and vocalist Chip Z'nuff, ENUFF Z'NUFF is still delivering the band's patented power pop melded with hard rock stylings.
The first single from "Brainwashed Generation", a song called "Fatal Distraction", can be streamed below.
Of the new album, Chip Z'nuff says: "This batch of songs are simply gifts from above via a plethora of influences. There's certainly plenty of fodder at this unprecedented time in our world."
He continues: "We recorded the album in few interesting locations. Stonecutters Studio in downtown Chicago, Chris Steinmantz's studio (WHITE LION, STYX), which was a ghost town, and my studio on the Southside that was filled with extracurricular activities during the whole process."
On working with guest musicians: "Fabulous rock musicians came by during these sessions to lend their magnificent skills such as members of CHEAP TRICK (Daxx Nielsen), Mike Portnoyand Steve Ramone."
The band plans to tour the U.S. and Europe in support of "Brainwashed Generation", once conditions allow touring activity to resume safely for fans and artists alike.
