Official press release:
American rock act CKY (Chad I Ginsburg, Jess Margera, and Matt Deis) have signed a worldwide record deal with Entertainment One Music (eOne Music) and plan on releasing a brand new full length album this summer. Scott Givens, SVP of eOne Music, says:
“All of us at Entertainment One are elated to have CKY join us and are looking forward unleashing their amazing new record this summer.”
Vocalist Chad I Ginsburg adds:
“We are thrilled to be working with one of the most progressive record labels in the music business today. CKY are looking forward to a long partnership in great music for the entire world with eOne!”
The all new yet to be titled LP will be the first release since the band put out Carver City in 2009.
CKY just announced a slew of tour dates highlighted by a summer long trek with the 2017 Vans Warped Tour. This is the band’s first time returning to the Warped Tour since 2000.
But first the band will head over to the UK to do thirteen show run, some of which are already sold out. This will be the first time the band has been back to the UK since 2009. CKY will then head to Canada for ten key shows from Quebec all the way to Vancouver. Click here for all tour dates.
Chad I Ginsburg, the band’s guitarist and singer, steps into the frontman role with charisma, charm, and bravado, confidently delivering a diverse performance as he claims a position that was clearly rightfully his to own.
He’s joined in enduring partnership and musical and personal chemistry by fellow CKY co-founder, Jess Margera, the drummer whose extracurricular work in projects like The Company Band (with guys from Clutch and Fireball Ministry) expanded CKY’s horizons as much as Ginsburg’s solo work has as well. The duo returned to their primary project refreshed and re-energized, with bassist Matt Deis (ex-All That Remains), who first joined CKY in 2005.
Guns N’ Roses, Metallica, and Deftones have all personally invited CKY on tour, cementing a legacy as a hard-charging live act. CKY built a worldwide fanbase of dedicated acolytes, friends, and supporters, lovingly dubbed the CKY Alliance, with a broader group of musicians, athletes, and other creative types in the CKY family, both literally and figuratively. Ginsburg declares, with matter-of-fact certainty:
“We’re grown adults now with an eagle-eye perspective on who we are, what we do, and how to do it right. None of us are out there in the clouds. We’re pretty well-grounded people that have an honest perspective on where we’re at.”
