Hollywood indie-rock artist Ringside will be releasing their new album, Lost Days, on January 25, 2011. Although singer and songwriter Scott Thomas played most of the instruments and produced, Lost Days features appearances from an impressive list of musicians and collaborators. Ben Harper is featured on the title track "Lost Days," a somber rocker with a big chorus, and in the accompanying music video. Ozomotli contributed horns to two songs on the album, "Freedom" and "Good." In addition to Scott's own playing, Ben Harper, Kirk Hellie, and Brian Bell from Weezer also play guitar.Joey Waronker, Jim Keltner, Josh Freese, Norm Block, Sandy Chila, and Jon Pikus played drums. Esthero, Res and Graph Nobel sang backing vocals.
The album was co-produced by Balthazar Getty, who also is the beat maker for the band, adding his electronic touches to heighten, intensify, and contrast with the more traditional rock guitars. more»
