Los Angeles based experimental-heavy-rock band IWRESTLEDABEARONCE have announced they will release their highly anticipated, third studio album, Late For Nothing, on August 6th via Century Media Records.

Late For Nothing
was self-produced, recorded, mixed and mastered by the band’s guitarist/programmer Steven Bradley at the band’s home studio in Los Angeles. It also marks IWABO’s first record with their fiery new singer Courtney LaPlante who joined the band with only a day’s notice during last summer’s Vans Warped Tour.

Newly recharged with the addition of LaPlante, Bradley and cohorts John Ganey (guitar/programming), Mike “Rickshaw” Martin (bass) and Mikey Montgomery (drums) are set to keep their fans guessing with Late For Nothing. While the band’s signature, avant-garde style is well intact on the new album; their style has progressed immensely. By far their boldest and most accessible release to date, Late For Nothing rips and roars with blunt force intensity, incorporating their brain joggling breakdowns with a unique blend of electronics, jazzed-out time signatures and break neck riffage.

"The entire album came together as a result of us wanting to do something different," affirms Bradley. "We didn't want to make another weird IWABO album or whatever people were expecting. We set out to make something different and better than anything we've ever released. It's a more evolved version of the band. We explored new styles and genres as well—especially in terms of the more spacey, epic, and beautiful parts. It's got the most melodic moments of our career as well as the heaviest."

Featuring the forthcoming, schizophrenic first single “Thunder Chunky,” Late For Nothing scales the summit of heavy rock/metal with twelve teeth gnashing tracks that find a happy medium between crushing metal and beautifully orchestrated melody. The album’s opener, “Thunder Chunky,” sets the tone for the album as they slash their way through songs like “Letters To Stallone,” that showcases LaPlante’s incredible balance of full throttle screams and melodic choruses, and “Carnage Asada,” which features a guest solo from the legendary Steve Vai.

IWABO will head to Europe for a summer run before returning to support the release of Late For Nothing in the U.S. on The All Stars Tour 2013 with Every Time I Die.

The lack of Krysta lowers my interest quite a bit, but I'll still probably check it out when it's released.

The new vocalist is actually better, believe it or not. Really solid live, and connects with the crowd way more than a mere "replacement" member would.
