James LaBrie:  Artwork for “Static Impulse” album unveiled; New MySpace page launched; First promo song ‘One More Time’ online!
James LaBrie is best known for his gig as the lead singer of prog metal titans Dream Theater, and rightfully so. But Dream Theater are recognized mostly for the complexity and density of their instrumentation. With LaBrie's solo album, “Static Impulse”, which is due to be released September 27th via InsideOutMusic in Europe, he is able to fully showcase his muscular, soaring voice. Noisecreep have premiered the new album’s opening song ‘One More Time’ to great acclaim yesterday here: www.noisecreep.com/2010/07/27/james-labrie-one-more-time-song-premiere

And the song is available now as well on the band’s newly launched official MySpace page:

"Musically speaking, 'One More Time' is sort of a marriage of old-school progressive elements and modern melodic death metal," guitarist/keyboardist Matt Guillory comments. "We wanted to have a drastic contrast between what's going on in the verses and what's going on in the choruses. There's almost a pop feel near the end where both James' vocals and my vocals start layering in different ways. Lyrically, the song is about dealing with the loss of a loved one."

“Static Impulse” also features the immensely talented longtime songwriting partner and keyboardist Matt Guillory. Another notable performance is Peter Wildoer from metal titans Darkane on drums and screaming vocals. The group is rounded out by Marco Sfogli on guitars and Ray Riendeau on bass and “Static Impulse” was mixed and mastered by the renowned Jens Borgen (Opeth, Katatonia, Soilwork, etc.) in Sweden at Fascination Street studios. The album’s cover artwork was created by Thomas Ewerhard (Avantasia, Threshold, Masterplan, etc.); who had already worked on the artwork for the previous James LaBrie solo effort, “Elements Of Persuasion”.

“Static Impulse” Line-Up:
James LaBrie - Lead Vocals
Matt Guillory - Keyboards, Background Vocals
Marco Sfogli - Guitars
