Los Angeles based Hard Rock sensation Hotel Diablo has signed a worldwide deal with Scarlet Records for the physical release of their full length debut ‘The Return To Psycho, California’.
Entertainment One (Bush, Chickenfoot, Black Label Society) will be distributing the CD in the US.
The band formed in early 2011, when vocalist Rick Stitch and guitarist Alex Grossi had just come off a grueling world tour with original Guns N’ Roses drummer Steven Adler in support of his tell-all biography. Upon returning home, Alex and Rick both departed the Adler camp in search of a fresh project and when they played a one-off gig in Hollywood with powerhouse rhythm section Mike Duda and Mike Dupke, everyone in the room had the same, excited feeling. The chemistry was undeniable!
Hotel Diablo’s full length debut ‘The Return To Psycho, California’ was produced by Gilby Clarke (Guns N’ Roses, Rockstar Supernova) with additional production by underground LA producer Matt Starr, and will be available worldwide starting September 25th. Legendary Los Angeles rock station 95.5 KLOS exclusively debuted ‘Bury You’, the first track released off of the album, to an overwhelming response in June of 2012.
“We are very excited to be working with Scarlet Records” says guitarist Alex Grossi “In the past couple of years they have really grown to become a major force in the European rock and metal market, and coupled with the muscle of E1 here in the US we feel that ‘The Return To Psycho, California will reach the audience it was meant to” .
The album is also available digitally via iTunes, Amazon and other online music retailers.
