"I think this album's really going to shock people," says vocalist Philly Byrne. "We're not afraid to write brash, outrageous songs that will make people stand up and shout. There are some straight-up classics on this album and we can't wait for everyone to hear it."
The album is Gama Bomb's first release since 2009's 'Tales From The Grave In Space' on Earache Records, which made history as one of the first albums ever to be released as a free download by a band signed to a record label.
'The Terror Tapes' features singer Byrne as well as bassist Joe McGuigan, lead guitarist Domo Dixon, drummer Paul Caffrey and guitarist John Roche, who replaced outgoing original member Luke Graham in 2011.
The album was recorded in Dublin and at Grindstone Studios in Suffolk, UK by Scott Atkins (Cradle Of Filth, Stamping Ground) over the autumn and winter of 2012.
"It's been a long road to bring 'The Terror Tapes' to life," says Byrne. "I had throat surgery, Domo had a tendon injury, we changed our line-up, we recorded without a label, did it all the hard way. We worked hard and got through and made a great album, which we're proud to be releasing with such great guys as AFM, who really believe in what we're doing. We've spent long enough in the shadows; now we're ready to re-emerge."
