June 12, 2017 — CKY (Chad I Ginsburg, Jess Margera and Matt Deis) have debuted a third new single today titled “Head For A Breakdown” exclusively via CONSEQUENCE OF SOUND. This is the final song we’ll hear from the band before the release of their new LP this Friday. The band released “Replaceable” a few weeks ago via exclusively via SIRIUSXM’s OCTANE channel and “Days Of Self Destruction” (Feat. Brent Hinds) before that. Both can be streamed below.
“‘Head for a Breakdown’ seemed to write itself,” says vocalist Chad I Ginsburg. “In a sense, it’s a song about taking things too far when you darn right know it won’t end well but you do it anyway. Go figure. The mid solo section is an epic break unlike any we have done in the past. Very Proud of this song.”
In addition to all preorders now being live, all three tracks are also available as an iTunes instant gratification tracks, meaning fans who pre order the album on iTunes will receive “Head For A Breakdown,”“Replaceable” and “Days Of Self Destruction” as an instant download.
CKY will release The Phoenix on June 16, 2017 via eOne Music. The all new LP will be the first release since the band put out Carver City in 2009. The album was engineered and mixed at Rancho De La Luna, the highly regarded recording studio in Joshua Tree, CA.
The cover art for The Phoenix was completed by chandelier maker and artist Adam Wallacavage. The band commissioned Wallacavage to create a one of a kind piece for the cover.
The band have tour dates booked all summer highlighted by a return to the 2017 Vans Warped Tour. This is the band’s first time returning to the Warped Tour since 2000. CKY just finished a highly successful thirteen show run of the UK, most of which were sold out. The band is currently headlining in Canada for ten key shows from Quebec all the way to Vancouver.
Chad I Ginsburg, the band’s guitarist and singer, steps into the frontman role with charisma, charm, and bravado, confidently delivering a diverse performance as he claims a position that was clearly rightfully his to own.
He’s joined in enduring partnership and musical and personal chemistry by fellow CKY cofounder, Jess Margera, the drummer whose extracurricular work in projects like The Company Band (with guys from Clutch and Fireball Ministry) expanded CKY’s horizons as much as Ginsburg’s solo work has as well. The duo returned to their primary project refreshed and reenergized, with bassist Matt Deis (ex-All That Remains), who first joined CKY in 2005.
Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, and Deftones have all personally invited CKY on tour, cementing a legacy as a hard-charging live act. CKY built a worldwide fanbase of dedicated acolytes, friends, and supporters, lovingly dubbed the CKY Alliance, with a broader group of musicians, athletes, and other creative types in the CKY family, both literally and figuratively.
“We’re grown adults now with an eagle-eye perspective on who we are, what we do, and how to do it right,” Ginsburg declares, with matter-of-fact certainty. “None of us are out there in the clouds. We’re pretty well-grounded people that have an honest perspective on where we’re at.”
