!ANNOUNCING MAXIMUM HEDRUM!

SAM SPIEGEL ANNOUNCES NEW PROJECT – MAXIMUM HEDRUM -FEATURING DERRICK GREEN OF SEPULTURA AND FAMED ELECTRONIC MUSICIAN HAROLD FALTERMEYER

DEBUT SELF-TITLED FULL LENGTH ALBUM DUE OUT ON MARCH 5th 2013

SINGLES “KEEP IN TOUCH” FEATURING GEORGE CLINTON AND “SYNTHESIZE” AVAILABLE NOW FOR FREE DOWNLOAD THIS WEEK

LOS ANGELES RESIDENCY SET FOR JANUARY AT LOS GLOBOS

 

NOVEMBER 27, 2012 – LOS ANGELES, CA – Producer, composer, director, and DJ Sam Spiegel today announced the launch of his new project, Maximum Hedrum and the release date of the group’s forthcoming self-titled debut album, due out on March 5th 2013 via Spectrophonic Sound. Maximum Hedrum’s unique electronic-funk hybrid features Sam Spiegel, the vocals of Derrick Green from the seminal heavy metal band Sepultura, and renowned German musician and producer Harold Faltermeyer, and examines the way our lives are changing through advancements in technology and the Internet. The album’s first singles “Keep In Touch” (featuring funk legend George Clinton) and “Synthesize” are available for purchase on iTunes (“Keep In Touch”, “Synthesize”) and for free download for a limited time via SoundCloud (see below).

Aside from his work producing the Yeah Yeah Yeahs Grammy®nominated sophomore album Show Your Bones and scoring countless films, documentaries and commercials, in 2009 Spiegel founded N.A.S.A (North America South America) whose landmark globetrotting debut LP, The Spirit of Apollo featured jaw-dropping collaborations from the likes of Kanye West, George Clinton, M.I.A., Tom Waits, RZA, and David Byrne.

 

The Maximum Hedrum project was instigated by Spiegel’s feelings on the advancements of technology and the resulting impact on our lives. “It was a feeling I had to express,” he said. “I really wanted to examine the interconnectedness and isolation this shift has brought… and the desperation that fills the Internet.”

 

After numerous experimental late night studio sessions with longtime friend and Sepultura vocalist Derrick Green in Sao Paulo, Brazil the project was officially born. “Derrick has only ever screamed on metal and hardcore albums before, but on this album he’s crooning with his bass baritone voice like Isaac Hayes, and also signing crazy falsetto like Prince. It’s a real departure from anything that either of us has ever done in the past,” said Sam Spiegel.

 

“I always imagined and desired to use my voice in as many ways imaginable,” said vocalist Derrick Green. “The combination of working together with Sam Spiegel has opened many possibilities to expand the boundaries of music. The idea of Maximum Hedrum is to break down all concepts and barriers of the mind and explore the unknown fearlessly. The journey is just beginning with so many endless possibilities with Maximum Hedrum.”

 

Heavily rooted in danceable electro-funk with classic synth textures, the album’s single “Keep In Touch” is a thumping psychedelic offering that features additional vocals from George Clinton. The song will also be featured in the upcoming Girl Skateboards film Pretty Sweet (see teaser clip below). The massive R&B influenced “Robosexual” incorporates additional percussion from guest collaborator Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, while the dreamy track “PHD” trance pulses with classic hip hop inspired beats. From start to finish, the album is a genuine genre-melding ride.

 

Maximum Hedrum will kick off 2013 with a live residency at Los Globos in Los Angeles, performing on January 14th, 21st, and 28th. The band will also appear at Austin’s South By Southwest in March. Stay tuned for additional live dates to be announced as well as an array of music videos, special mixtapes, remixes, and more.
