CKY DEBUT "REPLACEABLE" SINGLE EXCLUSIVELY VIA LOUDWIRE NEW LP THE PHOENIX DUE OUT JUNE 16, 2017 2017 VANS WARPED TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED CANADIAN TOUR DATES ANNOUNCED
June 2, 2017 — American rock act CKY (Chad I Ginsburg, Jess Margera and Matt Deis) have debuted another brand new single today titled “Replaceable” exclusively via LOUDWIRE. This the second new song we've seen from the band. The band released "Days Of Self Destruction" (Feat. Brent Hinds) last month and can be streamed below.
LISTEN TO "REPLACEABLE" VIA LOUDWIRE HERE "Replaceable is a rockin track. Fucking solid," says guitarist / vocalist Chad I Ginsburg. "I would say it is generally about anyone that gets in your way, holds you back or slows your potential with their own blatant insecurity, fears or sickness." In addition to all preorders now being live, both tracks are also available as an iTunes instant gratification track, meaning fans who pre order the album on iTunes will receive "Replaceable" and “Days Of Self Destruction” as an instant download. Ginsberg continues, "Individuals that you are ultimately and knowingly covering for as they selfishly sabotage you. And then realizing how much better you can be without any losers or life suckers as obstacles. Rock n roll power. Onward. Strength from within." CKY will release The Phoenix on June 16, 2017 via eOne Music. The all new LP will be the first release since the band put out Carver City in 2009. The album was engineered and mixed at Rancho De La Luna, the highly regarded recording studio in Joshua Tree, CA. The cover art for The Phoenix was completed by chandelier maker and artist Adam Wallacavage to create a one of a kind piece for the cover. The band have tour dates booked all summer highlighted by a return to the 2017 Vans Warped Tour. This is the band's first time returning to the Warped Tour since 2000. CKY just finished a highly successful thirteen show run of the UK, most of which were sold out. The band is currently heading to Canada for ten key shows from Quebec all the way to Vancouver.
Chad I Ginsburg, the band’s guitarist and singer, steps into the frontman role with charisma, charm, and bravado, confidently delivering a diverse performance as he claims a position that was clearly rightfully his to own. He’s joined in enduring partnership and musical and personal chemistry by fellow CKY cofounder, Jess Margera, the drummer whose extracurricular work in projects like The Company Band (with guys from Clutch and Fireball Ministry) expanded CKY’s horizons as much as Ginsburg’s solo work has as well. The duo returned to their primary project refreshed and reenergized, with bassist Matt Deis (ex-All That Remains), who first joined CKY in 2005. Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, and Deftones have all personally invited CKY on tour, cementing a legacy as a hard-charging live act. CKY built a worldwide fanbase of dedicated acolytes, friends, and supporters, lovingly dubbed the CKY Alliance, with a broader group of musicians, athletes, and other creative types in the CKY family, both literally and figuratively. “We’re grown adults now with an eagle-eye perspective on who we are, what we do, and how to do it right,” Ginsburg declares, with matter-of-fact certainty. “None of us are out there in the clouds. We’re pretty well-grounded people that have an honest perspective on where we’re at.”
