NG26: "Open Your Mind". Released on Holier Than Thou Records & Code 7 Distribution, Monday November 1st 2010.
"One hell of a debut album, from one hell of a set of musicians! I might even go so far as to say this is just what modern metal needs right now!" - Bubblegum Sluts Magazine
"The guitars are huge, heavy and loud, the drums kick like they should, it`s greatâ€¦one band that you simply must keep an eye onâ€¦" - Komodorock.com
Since their inception in mid-2007, Nottingham based NG26 have worked tirelessly in establishing themselves as genuine contenders at the forefront of the newly resurgent UK underground metal scene. The 4â€“piece band (formed by two sets of brothers) have spent the last 3 years relentlessly touring the width and breadth of the country, racking up some serious miles supporting the likes of KILL 2 THIS, CYCLEFLY and Scottish stalwarts GUN.
"Open Your Mind" (Holier Than Thou Records on Monday November 1st) is the bands first commercial release and the 10 track album is a melodically furious fusion of massive metal riff`s and catchy as hell vocal`s, all held together beautifully by a tight as a vice groove driven rhythm section that make all the plaudits this band have received for their live show all the more justified. The first single to be taken from the album â€˜One More Road From Home` proceeds the album on Monday October 25th and is a hugely anthemic slice of metal tinged alternative rock that will appeal to fans of bands such as Stone Sour, Shinedown and Alter Bridge.
NG26 will be touring the UK in support of "Open Your Mind" throughout November and December (including a support slot with GUN in Glasgow) and will be releasing the awesome video for lead single "One More Road From Home" on Monday October 4th! With such a fantastic sounding album, chock full of alternative anthems just waiting to be discovered, NG26 are really making an effort to announce their arrival in the big leagues.
