Atlanta metal band Injected recently released their first album in 15 years. The Truth About You was produced by Kyle Spence (Harvey Milk, Kurt Vile, J. Mascis), who also plays drums on the whole album. Guitarist Jade Lemons, who died last year, also contributed to the recording.
After forming in the mid-90s while still in high school, Injected’s debut EP, Hammered and Enamored, attracted major label attention upon its 1996 release. Island Def Jam signed them, subsequently releasing their debut album Burn It Black (produced by Butch Walker) in early 2002, but the band split up before releasing a follow-up. The Truth About You is a collection of tracks that were started over a decade ago while the members were considering reforming the band; during 2010, work on the material continued as Lemons and frontman Danny Grady worked with Spence on recording the new songs. After Lemons’ death, Grady decided it was time to finally properly release the album.
“We had so much fun,” Grady says of the recording sessions for Truth. “It was spontaneous, and we didn’t overthink anything. It was everything rock ‘n’ roll should be.”
