In one week, the classic kings of punk, THE ADICTS, will unleash their eleventh studio album, And So It Was So!, via Nuclear Blast in the U.S. and Arising Empire for Europe and the U.K..
Today, the band discusses the origin of their name and why there is only one “d” in the spelling. Check out the video here: https://youtu.be/Mfl_KqQq5R0
The band released the music video for “Picture The Scene”. Watch the infectious, graphical, motion voyage that was skillfully directed by Bobby Hacker and produced by Luke “Ramone” Davison on the Nuclear Blast YouTube channel!
Unparalleled with their Clockwork Orange Droog attire and theatrics, high energy, uptempo music, mosh-pit inducing, and unforgettable performances, THE ADICTS are no strangers to the scene having formed in the 1975 in Ipswich, England. These punk legends continue to raise sonic hell.
The band comments, “And It Was So! is the title, it tells it like it is.”
The album was recorded at Pete’s place in California. Engineered was handled by Tom Arley, Pete Dee and Christopher Brookes. Pete was also in charge of handling the mixing of the record. The artwork for the album was created by the band.
