FIREBALL MINISTRY Sign to Nuclear Blast

June 12, 2003

Los Angeles based heavy hitters, FIREBALL MINISTRY have signed an exclusive worldwide contract with Nuclear Blast Records. Alumni of MTV’s “You Hear It First” program, the band made the news official by announcing it on last week’s edition of MTV’s “Headbanger’s Ball.” MTV’s resident hard rock supporter, Iann Robinson, had this to say about FIREBALL MINISTRY, “As the idea of rock heroes keep fading into the background, along comes FIREBALL MINISTRY to pump life back into it. No bitching, no politics, just a party, fueled by the amazing music they create and James A. Rota’s powerhouse vocals. If I do one thing right at MTV, it’ll be to make FIREBALL MINISTRY the biggest band in the world.”

With two prior releases under their belt, Oui Est La Rock? (Bongload Records) and FMEP (Small Stone Records), FIREBALL MINISTRY are once again prepared to spread their newest message of hard rock and heavy metal to the congregated masses. The band combine the massive rock and roll thunder of GRAND FUNK RAILROAD with the classic heavy metal crunch of bands like BLACK SABBATH and JUDAS PRIEST providing sonic deliverance for today’s pure rock-starved audiences.

Their Nuclear Blast debut album, The Second Great Awakening, was produced by Nick Raskulinecz (FOO FIGHTERS, MARILYN MANSON, VELVET REVOLVER, DANZIG) and is tentatively scheduled for a late September release. The album, featuring exclusive artwork created by cult comic artist Dan Brebreton of Nocturnals fame, will include the songs “Master Of None,” “Flatline,” and “The Sinner” among others.
