Battery Cage returns to Metropolis in 2008 with a brand new digital-only release, Forever Never Ends. Building on the momentum of the previous album, Forever Never Ends contains 5 new songs, 2 unreleased out-takes from A Young Person's Guide To Heartbreak, and 4 remixes. Thematically linked to its predecessor, the new material continues to explore the confusion and devastation of living with the consequence of a broken heart. Opening with the title track, a powerful gothic dance-floor anthem, Forever Never Ends maintains the intensity from start to finish, with remixes provided by such acts as former Metropolis artist Out Out, as well as Canada's Fractured. Former founding bandmate Jeremy Page returns, after almost a decade, to deliver his own unique spin on “Hustler,” and mainstream remix artist RemixVillain takes “Crush And Spurn” to an all new level by stripping it down to the rawest possible components. With the past few years of intense creation now fully realized, Forever Never Ends sets the bar high and challenges the listener to hear beyond an increasingly narrow set of genre restrictions.
With their newest release, "A Young Person's Guide To Heartbreak" Battery Cage has morphed into an industrial rock band in the purest sense. Heavy crunching guitars, mirrored by percolating synths, and clamoring beats lay the groundwork for Tyler Newman's forceful vocals. "A Young Person's Guide To Heartbreak" will set the stage for the next surge in the industrial and rock music scenes.
The long deleted debut album finally sees the light of day with this reissue. Originally intended for release in 1998, this album has been completely reworked and remastered for 2005! An aggressive blend of harsh vocals, distorted synths, and powerful breakbeats, ''Product'' draws upon influences such as Numb and Lassigue Bendhaus to deliver a powerhouse album that sounds as relevant today as it did in 1998. Released on Solidgreysky. Limited edition.
"Survival" was taken off of the "World Wide Wasteland" album due to the overall length of the album, and because the overall tone of the song didn't quite correllate with the rest of the record. This was one of the first fully collaborative tracks written by the "new" incarnation of Battery Cage, with all members of the band writing and tracking their parts in the studio. An interesting way of working and getting something good done, and definitely something we'll be exploring again.
