Announces Debut Album 'Blame'

"Here we go again!" shouts Who on Earth's frontman, Coosh, as the band explodes into their latest offering, "Down & Out" - the new single off their upcoming album, 'BLAME', which will be released later this year. To celebrate their new single, the band has partnered with Bravewords to premiere the music video for "Down & Out", which can be found HERE. WHO ON EARTH is a band with stories to tell and experiences to share and they once again deliver them with groove and melody. Bassist and songwriter Pete Rizzi explains, "This is a song about alcoholism and drug addiction. It's about a guy who wakes up after being in a blackout. Something terrible has happened, people are screaming and crying. He doesn't know exactly what he's done and we don't actually find out but he knows that he is to blame and that the jig is finally up; he's hit bottom." Coosh adds, "'Down & Out' resonates with me deeply because the topic of substance abuse and addiction has plagued some of my family members and close friends. I personally traveled a similar journey and was lucky enough to escape its path of destruction before it was too late."

To capture the exact nature of the song with a powerful image, the band again turned to Ken Adams (illustrator for Lamb of God, WOE's "Monster in a Jar," etc.). Ken shares: "The band wanted an image that would embellish the pain, insanity, frustration, and exasperation of addiction. I was really fired up about this one and set out to capture that feeling of truly 'losing it'. That moment of reckoning so to speak where you want to crawl out of your own skin. This is one of my favorite pieces I've done in years!" Rizzi concludes, "Addiction is a family disease. It's baffling, destructive, scary and disheartening. Often it doesn't end well. But this is just the beginning of this particular story and more will be revealed about this guy in our next single. So stay tuned and until then we hope you enjoy Down & Out!"

About WHO ON EARTH

Somebody needed to pick up the torch for hard rock and heavy metal with real grit and gusto and without a gimmick. Enter Who On Earth. The New Jersey quartet — Coosh [vocals], Pete Rizzi [bass], Joe D’Aqui [drums], and Steve Eagle [guitar] — deliver a one-two punch of hard-hitting hooks and airtight instrumentation bolted down by pummeling grooves and piercing riffs. With virtuoso guitarist and producer Mike Orlando [Adrenaline Mob, Noturnall] in their corner, the musicians pay homage to rock’s past as they usher in its future on their independent full-length debut, Blame. It all gestated from a question… “We wanted to fill in the blank of ‘Who On Earth is going to bring back good rock and metal?’,” explains Pete. “We grew up on the new wave of British heavy metal and classic rock. We went through grunge and other great genres of metal. We wanted to resurrect the melodies, hooks, and guitar solos. We went back to our roots, yet upgraded everything with modern production.” The group made their bones through countless gigs across the Tristate area in every dive bar and concert hall with a stage. Along the way, Coosh and Pete tore up venues as part of MadHaus, performing marathon covers. In 2021, the longtime friends chose to forego covers, hunker down, and compose an original album. Pete invited Joe D’Aqui—the ever-versatile drummer of his thrash band PIERCED—to join the fold. In order to bring the record to life, the band hit the studio with none other than Mike Orlando. Over the course of the next year, the guys endured numerous COVID delays as they recorded with Orlando behind the board as producer, engineer, and “stunt” guitarist. Nodding to everyone from Black Sabbath, Iron Maiden, and Metallica to Rush, Alice In Chains, and Tool, they placed storytelling in the spotlight. “Most of our songs are complete stories from start to finish,” notes Coosh. “We’re talking about our lives.” In the end, Who On Earth fills a void for rock ‘n’ roll. “We just tried to write good songs,” Pete leaves off. “We’ve gone back to what we grew up on. It’s still valuable and relevant. It can’t die.”
