(NEW YORK, NY) – Southern California mainstays NO BRAGGING RIGHTS has announced their new studio release entitled “Cycles,” due out October 16, 2012. Front man Mike Perez states:
“We cannot wait to get this album out to our friends and fans. We are very proud of the sound and even more proud of the message behind it. We’re looking forward to playing these songs live and seeing everyone at the shows.”
NO BRAGGING RIGHTS recently signed a worldwide record deal with Good Fight / eOne Music. “The guys and I are beyond stoked to be a part of the GoodFight/eOne family. We feel this will be a good fit for us as we grow and continue moving forward,” says Perez.
NO BRAGGING RIGHTS, also widely known as “NBR,” began to take its present shape in the summer of 2005. Leading up to that point, the band had been veterans of the southern California pop punk scene before they began work on their first self released full length album, “Because You Believe in Something Beyond Them.”
NBR was at a crossroads. Member changes and new ideas took them in a heavier, more hardcore oriented direction. The early 2006 release was well received in the local scene and helped establish the band outside of their home town.
The band went on to release three more records over the next five years. Most notably “Illuminator,” recorded at Lambesis Studios featuring the hit single “Blind Faith.”
Beyond excited with the last album, the band returned to Lambesis Studios to record their new record which according to the band, is their most forward thinking material to date. Mixed by Kelly “The Carnage” Cairns at One Light Media in Las Vegas, fans can expect the new record to be released later this year.
NO BRAGGING RIGHTS is: Mike Perez (vocals), Christian Lee (guitars), Daniel Garrow (guitars), Martin Alcedo (drums) and Ryan Warrell (bass).
