The Rebirth of Big Wreck - MusicNerd

"After rising to become one of Canada’s favourite guitar-driven bands in the late 90′s, Big Wreck imploded in a big way after the release of their second record The Pleasure and The Greed. Although Big Wreck vocalist-guitarist Ian Thornley went on to see success with his post-Wreck project Thornley, the lure and legacy of Big Wreck was too big to ignore."

ALBATROSS AVAILABLE IN STORES NOW

BIG WRECK returns with their highly anticipated third full-length album "Albatross". Produced by BIG WRECK's singer-guitarist Ian Thornley, alongside executive producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Rush) and Eric Ratz (Billy Talent, Cancer Bats), 'Albatross' is available in stores across Canada and on iTunes on March 6, 2012 through Anthem/Warner Music in Canada. The excitement surrounding the band's revival and new album has catapulted the lead single and title track to become the highest charting Canadian single at "All Rock", Modern Rock and Alternative Radio Stations in the country.

It can safely be said that Big Wreck of 2012 follows naturally from where their songbook left off a decade
earlier. Returning to that place where like-minded musicians communicate is to return to the wellspring of
inspiration and creativity. With Big Wreck, that translates into an outpouring of rock music that is direct from the subconscious heart, and lives in the interplay of controlled horsepower and unbridled virtuosity. Big Wreck remains faithful to the "Big Rock" playbook but isn't necessarily interested in the "so big it will eat your children" flavours of today. "I went for all the good stuff that's missing on rock records these days," says Ian in describing the recording process. "I wanted to avoid falling into the formulaic cookie-cutter trap. That’s not going to interest me, so how can it interest the listener? I have to go with my gut, which means longer songs, intros, bridges and guitar solos which explore strange territories, more room for breathing and a different dynamic range or sonic palette altogether.”

With ‘Albatross,’ Big Wreck is back to doing things the way they did in the very beginning; writing and
recording without any outside influence, and regardless of the tastes of the day. The result is 11 new wellcrafted tracks filled with intriguing timbres and powerful vocal performances that won’t disappoint the fans they earned in the early years, and is sure to inspire a new legion of Big Wreck fans.
