MULTI-PLATINUM SELLING BAND, ALIEN ANT FARM CONFIRMS NEW MUSIC RELEASE IN COLLABORATION WITH ESJAY JONES PRODUCTIONS
There has been a lot of excitement on social media over the past few weeks as multi-platinum selling band ALIEN ANT FARM teams up with South African born producer / songwriter, Esjay Jones for the recording of their new 4-song EP.
Production / Engineer duo, Esjay Jones and Lucas D’Angelo partnered with audio pioneers SLATE DIGITAL and GENELEC, INC to build a temporary recording studio in the home of AAF Drummer, Mike Cosgrove in Riverside, CA.
“Some of my favorite records were not recorded in conventional studios” said Esjay, “drawing inspiration from albums like Incubus Morning View, Deftones White Pony and other favorites from the early 2000’s, we wanted to harness a creative atmosphere and capture the sonic and youthful energy of the band where they are most comfortable” Esjay exclaims “The natural push and pull of the band was extremely important to us - records are too perfect these days, and we didn’t want that”
Frank Zummo is an American rock / EDM drummer, musician, songwriter, and record producer, best known as the drummer for SUM 41 and Street Drum Corps.
Esjay is currently working alongside Frank and his team at Waldman management on his artist project.
Esjay has been building a repertoire of hip hop and metal influenced productions rumoured to feature some of her famous friends including Love & Death vocalist, Brian “Head” Welch.
“I’ve been working on this project in between producing and writing with bands for the past two years. I decided to pull the trigger and officially launch this project with a cover of SlipKnot’s ‘duality’ featuring my good friend, Terry Corso of Alien Ant Farm on guitar” say Jones. “I’ve always had a great love for the nu-metal era and Slipknots "duality" is one of my favorite tracks from the early 2000's. It’s been a great quarantine process to put a different spin on this incredible song to record this "Pigs version" in isolation, then finish it with a couple of friends from around the world over the inter-web ”
Esjay has hinted that the over-all project is heavily influenced by her love of Deftones ... we are looking forward to hearing the rest of this project due late 2020.
