The recording of the debut album is
progressing well and you can hear some of the new material right now by
logging on to the
page at MySpace including 'From My Cold Dead Hands', 'Used',
'Dirty Blood' and the Dave Bottrill new recording of 'Song Of One Word'
- featured on Metal Hammer Razor Vol.4 CD April 2004 issue.
Confident, brain-rattling stormers that
shimmer with style, and their anthemic stadium-rock leanings are pulled
off with aplomb - making New Disease a far more exciting and interesting
proposition than most 7/10
(Rock Sound, September 2003)
Ladies and Gentlemen, allow
us to introduce you to New Disease... The band, who are currently
unsigned, sound like the best rockin' tunes you ever heard at the best
club on the best night of your life.
(Metal Hammer, Dec 2002)
In an ideal world, New Disease's expansive,
grandiloquent songs would be blasting forth from a 150,000 watt rig.
Tracks like the punchy, anthemic 'Song Of One Word' and the soaring 'Syanara'
connect with heart and head with equal ferocity. For those craving a
homegrown 'intelligent' rock band, there's salvation in this sickness
(Kerrang, October 2002)
New Disease originate from the Midlands in the UK. Birmingham born
guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite has been Tricky's guitarist since
1998... mark discovered Wolverhampton born vocalist Jacob Lee Bane, who
was touring with UK band Underdogg. Recognising the potential
range of Bane's vocalsjuxtaposed with MGT's mix of anthemic alt-rock and
electronica, the duo started writing songs together in Spring 2002.

One Minute Silence) and bassist
