Album Notes
There were only 2000 of these pressed by the band with this cover.
EXPLODE is the band's most definitive record to date - the hard rock gem of the year. Marked by the melodic and lyrical prowess of guitarist/singer JEFF DUNCAN (Armored Saint,Odin), EXPLODE showcases strong songwriting rarely found in hard rock.
Effusing abandon in the human condition without foregoing restraint, DC4 has created a set of cuts that knows no particular era. EXPLODE broadens the band's musical palette while simplifying their core sound, hitting hard when and where it counts.

Adding former teenage guitar prodigy ROWAN ROBERTSON (Dio) to the line-up last year dialed in the focus of DC4 to an unimaginable degree. Giving the band its sharpest edge yet, the chemistry between ROBERTSON and guitarist/singer JEFF DUNCAN is like two sides of the same coin - the incendiary yin-and-yang of two brothers who, along with bassist MATT and drummer SHAWN Duncan (Odin), endeavor to take hard rock to the next level. Ironically, the newest and youngest member of DC4 is the only one of the four who's not a sibling by blood, but he may as well be. "ROWAN just happens to be another brother in that he comes from the same school. He likes powerful, strong music. From the first time we played with him, we knew it was gonna work," drummer SHAWN DUNCAN explained. "Overall, EXPLODE has more teeth. It's a better representation of the band. We knew what songs we were going to record, how they were going to go and what kind of attitude each song had. We knew what we wanted as individuals and as a band." Producer JOEY VERA (Armored Saint) was brought into the fold to produce EXPLODE. Given a 10-song demo to assess, the hard rock/metal veteran had an opportunity to help realize the vision of a band whose sound he knows so well.

Having worked with Producer JOE FLOYD (Bruce Dickinson, Warrior) on their debut EP MOOD SWINGS, DC4 switched gears when they first enlisted JOEY VERA to be at the helm of their full-length disc entitled VOLUME ONE (2002). VOLUME ONE separated DC4 from the rest of the pack with a heavy dose of melody in a hard rock setting and lyrics that neither mimic emotions nor come from a place that isn't absolutely real. Released in Europe on Rising Sun Records, VOLUME ONE steadily garnered critical and commercial acclaim while setting the course in motion to put DC4 on the map as the hottest up-and-coming hard rock band of today. VOLUME ONE may have built an audience and laid a solid foundation, but it's no match for current fan reaction to the new tracks from EXPLODE that recently posted on the band's MYSPACE page. If MOOD SWINGS was the strong effort of a band honing their sound, VOLUME ONE was the record that would culminate into the vision that DC4 has now: EXPLODE!

No More Beers

first heard these guys as a featured band on Big Jim's Rock Show (www.therockshow.co.uk) - think Velvet Revolver'Dirty Little Thing', Black Label Society 'Suicide Messiah', Backyard Babies 'Brand New Hate', Motley Crue 'Shout At the Devil' n a dash of Pantera 'Mouth For War' - that's just gotta be a recipe for something good
