Greg Rekus talks about latest release and announce tour dates!

Greg Rekus

Rekus’s latest full-length album, “Sibling Cities”, once again enlists the genius of John Paul Peters (Royal Canoe, Comeback Kid Propagandhi) as engineer/producer. Featuring local musicians Tabitha Hemphill on bass and back-up vocals, and Erik Strom on drums, the album boasts thirteen original tracks, featuring a stronger influence from the more melodic qualities of pop-punk.

Sibling Cities is a mix of heart break, good times, political jousting and life in general. It was a hard album to write and record. A lot of personal stuff is in those songs. I was going through the very hard breakup as well as learning to be on the road alone.

When I was at home life felt very distant as did friends and I filled my schedule up with work to try to keep busy, but my head felt like a prison every day felt like a life sentence. The music was great to track, and we did everything live off the floor. Vocals were done between 2 sessions due to a sinus infection. It was heart breaking but I was in no shape to sing and it took over a month to recover.

Tab and Erik who also played on the record were a huge part of it. We locked ourselves in a room for a week straight and jammed for 6 – 8 hours every day till the songs were packed with awesomeness! Tab and I spend night after night editing the lyrics and refining the true meaning of all the song. The end product is 13 songs that I feel speak for themselves!” reveals Greg.

Greg Rekus is now ready to hit the road throughout Europe! All tour dates can be found at: http://www.gregrekus.com/ ; hope we’ll see you there!

About Valentine Klipfel

As a huge fan of pop-punk, easycore and punk-rock music since forever, I officially started my career in 2011 by offering press relations and social media services to underground bands and labels. In parallel, I also worked for other magazines and webzines, which allowed me to understand what a media wants to receive! I've finally created my own webzine in 2015. Since then, I've continued in this direction in order to help bands and labels develop their visibility and notoriety worldwide.
