GENUFLECT lashes out against social, political and economic corruption, with contentious vocals and aggressive guitars over pounding beats. It's the new project from the lead singer and the guitarist from the band "Reveille", Drew Simollardes and Greg Sullivan, who sold a few hundred-thousand albums and toured on Ozzfest with Pantera, Soulfly and Disturbed, and who also toured nationally with Sevendust, Static-X, Godsmack, Powerman 5000, Kid Rock, Machinehead, and many more.
Genuflect's new album, "a Rose from the Dead" was released on October 31st, 2014. Their debut record "The End of the World" was released in 2007, and was followed by "The Shadow Side" in 2009. Genuflect headlined national tours in 2008 and again in 2009 promoting their first two albums to a loyal underground fan following, before disbanding for several years. Genuflected fully reformed in late 2013 however, and announced plans to put out a new album - which they've just released, and which fans and critics alike are calling their best album to date. All three Genuflect records can be purchased online through CDBaby for distribution to anywhere in the world. Genuflect tracks are also available for download on iTunes, Amazon MP3, and GooglePlay.
Genuflect is steadily building a global following, selling records throughout North and South America, Asia, Africa, Australia, and the European nations. The band stands for human rights and responsibility to the environment. They speak out against prejudice, financial inequality and corporate and government corruption at home and abroad. The music is raw, unapologetic, and powerful and their message is turning heads among fans and activists across the planet.
"Genuflect is wired for political and social agitation. Song after song (Genuflect) picks a target and unloads. The misleading politicking that set the stage for the war in Iraq, the sex scandals involving members of the clergy, the idea of terrorists killing in the name of God, and the social decay brought on by a culture overfed on celebrity news but starved of meaningful discussion are some of the topics raised on "The End of the World." … a relentlessly hard-sounding album." -The Worcester Telegram and Gazzette
"Genuflect ... is less rap and more metal than Reveille, but stays true to the hardcore sound that gave Reveille its edge. Street-smart songs such as "Potent" and "Kill Shot" delve into societal ills like crime and drugs with genuine passion and explosiveness. Could a rap-rock resurgence be upon us?" -The Boston Herald
