EGYPT CENTRAL Continue Their Rise Up The Active Rock Charts With Title Track From ’White Rabbit,’ Due Out May 17

April 18, 2011 -- EGYPT CENTRAL--John Falls (vocals), Joey Chicago (bass), Blake Allison (drums), Jeff James (guitar)—is currently criss-crossing the U.S. with Cold and Kopek in support of their forthcoming sophomore album, WHITE RABBIT, which is due out May 17 on Fat Lady Music/ILG/Warner Music Group.
The first single and title track was released to Active Rock radio and iTunes on February 15.   It’s currently sitting at #24 on Billboard’s “Active Rock” chart and #25 on the Mediabase Active Rock chart.  A video for “White Rabbit” was recently shot in Nashville with director Mason Dixon (Framing Hanley, Tantric).   An exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of the video can be seen on here.
As bassist Joey Chicago explained to  "’White Rabbit,' as a song, is about the act of being within the struggle, the lesson that is trusting someone or something that is not what it seems.  We wanted to write a song that people could relate to because we were being honest and showing our vulnerability.  The song bridges the gap between the self-titled first record and the new album.  The metaphor dives deeper in the video as we are introduced the characters directly correlating with the record.  It's the beginning of the tale of four men determined to get their lives back from the people or things that have influenced and damaged them in such a negative way.  It is the first of a series of videos showing the war between purity and deception, determination and distraction, EGYPT CENTRAL and the White Rabbit."
Fans anxious to hear snippets of every song on WHITE RABBIT should head to the band’s YouTube page:
WHITE RABBIT is the follow up to 2008’s self-titled debut album, which debuted at #8 on the Billboard “Heatseekers” chart and included the singles “You Make Me Sick” and “Over And Under,” both achieving Top 40 status on the Active Rock chart.  WHITE RABBIT was produced by Skidd Mills (Saving Abel, 12 Stones, etc.) and features twelve songs of heavy riffs, lyrics from the soul and strong melodic hooks.  Threaded throughout this collection of songs is a story of consequences that occur when one accepts or declines the invitation from the “White Rabbit.” 
“We knew we had solid songs, but when the opportunity came to work with Skidd, we found the person that could not only make a great sounding record, but also bring the best out of us,” states lead singer John Falls. “We had a lot of growing to do as men and the time was right to give our fans what they deserved and what we knew we were capable of…Kick Ass Rock!”  Adds Joey Chicago, “Collectively, this is the best group of songs we have ever written.”
