SICK OF IT ALL Announce New Album "Wake the Sleeping Dragon!" and European Tour

SICK OF IT ALL are pleased to announce their upcoming album, entitled ”Wake The Sleeping Dragon!“, is scheduled for release on 02 November 2018.

Working with friends is one of the key factors that are very important to SICK OF IT ALL, so asking Ernie Parada for the striking front cover was an obvious choice: “There is no reason to burn bridges in this business”, says drummer Armand Majidi . “Our history with Ernie Parada goes back to the late eighties, so working with him, there is a kinship that makes things easier to communicate.”

Singer Lou Koller and Parada came up with the idea of doing monster-movie styled art as the cover. “The dragon climbing the Empire State was a concept I always wanted to see brought to life, so the two ideas were destined to come together this way.”

SICK OF IT ALL and Tue Madsen, who mixed and mastered “Wake The Sleeping Dragon!”, have maintained a long-lasting relationship based on understanding, friendship and most importantly, good results - three factors any band would be very happy with. The Jerry Farley also became a very important part of the creation of this album. After working with him at Nova Studios on Staten Island, New York, they went for a closer approach on this album: “This is the first time we've ever had a producer involved from start to finish, including the song-writing process. His objective viewpoints helped settle a lot of little issues that could have easily become stumbling blocks, and the songs themselves ended up benefitting from them.”

Keep your eyes and ears open for a new song soon. While the band is currently playing summer festivals such as Summer Breeze, Reload or Summer Blast, they have already lined up more shows in France, Spain, Portugal and Italy in November, as well as co-headlining the Persistence Tour 2019.
