Mike Froedge (Black Label Society, DoubleDrive, SpeedX) announces the release of Classy, the debut album from his band, The Dreaded Marco, on Saturday October 1, 2011 at The Peachtree Tavern, Atlanta, GA. The album was recorded at Froedge’s own recording studio, Open Sky Studio in Atlanta. The signature sound of Classy boasts guitar rhythms and riffs that threaten to define a new genre of rock, one that encompasses soulful vocals, dynamic performances and Froedge’s unmistakable hard hitting style: Dirty Rock n Roll.
The Dreaded Marco is a line up full of familiar faces to the Atlanta and national rock scene. The members of the band have been signed to labels big and small, won awards both nationally and internationally and have performed in front of audiences worldwide. The Dreaded Marco is fronted by Charlie Sheets (Echovalve) on vocals and rhythm guitar, Dixie Duncan (Echovalve, Eye Empire) plays lead guitar, while Scott Williams plays bass; and on drums, Mike Froedge. The sound or genre that would classify the band was an afterthought for The Dreaded Marco, allowing the musicians to do what they do best, create music, and that freedom birthed a truly original sound: Dirty Rock n Roll.
