Pump Your Ristband: May 20 Record Release at Pal Joey’s

Roxy Monoxide/Y3K Spinoff Band Launching Second Album

http://www.sandiegoreader.com/bands/ristband/">Ristband’s release party for their second album Balancing Act happens Friday, May 20 at Pal Joey’s.

“The cover art features Adelaide Marcus of http://www.sandiegoreader.com/bands/danyavaad/">Danyavaad & the Shimmy Sisters,” says guitarist Dave Gladish, “depicting a Hindu goddess, balancing four symbols from Hindu teaching — lotus, conch, skull, fire — representing what we all have to balance to get through life.” Balancing Act was recorded at Room 16 Studios.

“We kept tradition with our first album by adding a cover and a guest vocalist. The cover tune is ‘Over Under Sideways Down’ by the Yardbirds. We love Jeff Beck! Though we took some liberties with the outtro jam section.”

“The guest singer is Kirk Cumming from my old southern rock band Falcon Mohawk. He sings and Scott Proseus, from the same band, plays slide on the tune ‘Medicine Man.’” Both Cumming and Proseus have also played with Caliber and 5 Miles High.

Ristband was co-founded by Dave Gladish, formerly of http://www.sandiegoreader.com/bands/roxy-monoxide/">Roxy Monoxide. Underpowered and Overdriven, their first album, was released in April 2010. Guests include Scott Proseus on guitar and Lou Fanucchi on accordion. The album was recorded at Room 16 in El Cajon, produced by Dave Gladish, engineered by Scott Stojak, and mastered at Baja Vista Studios in Oceanside.

Drummer Billy Wear also plays with http://www.sandiegoreader.com/bands/y3k/">Y3K, Charlie Imes Hodad Surf Club, and the San Diego Bayside Band. Singer/guitarist Dave Gladish plays with the Bobby Sanchez Combo, Charlie Imes Hodad Surf Club, and Miff Laracy’s Bumbershoot. Bassist Kevin Irvin plays with Wild Rumours, Blow by Blow, and his own Kirvin Experience. Singer/guitarist/keyboardist Ed Been plays with Y3K and Inexpensive Joke.
