“Incredibly refreshing and unique.. it’s easy to hit play and before you know it you’re at the end.

After After a hiatus of nearly 10 years, the original founder members of NEW DISEASE– the band formed in 2002 by guitarist Mark Gemini Thwaite and vocalist Jacob Lee Bane – have decided to release the long awaited and to date unreleased New Disease album on CD and digital download.

The band – including Queen Adreena bassist Richard Adams and original drummer Ritch Battersby (The Wildhearts) released the Axiomatic EP back in 2003, co-produced by NIN/H.I.M producer John Fryer, and the band received favourable reviews in the British rock press including Kerrang! magazine, Metal Hammer and Rock Sound magazine. This drew the attention of Tool/Muse producer David Bottrill, who negotiated a deal for the band with Universal Records USA and his label imprint “Mainstation Music” in 2004. During this time drummer Ritch Battersby departed the band and was replaced with former One Minute Silence drummer Eddie Stratton.

After signing to Universal records and releasing the single ‘Like Rain’ produced by Bottrill, the band were later dropped by Universal amongst many other bands during a restructure. New Disease never officially disbanded but all plans to release the band’s debut album were placed on indefinite hiatus.. until now.

In June 2014 the band announced on their website and facebook page that after a hiatus of nearly 10 years, founder members MGT & Bane had written new material and planned to release the long awaited album on CD and digital download.

‘Patent Life’ – ten years in the making – is finally mixed, mastered and released via CDBaby.com in North America on 11th August 2014. Recorded between 2003-2004 during sessions with producer David Bottrill and John Fryer, and featuring current drummer Eddie Stratton (One Minute Silence), the 15 track album (in CD and digital formats) includes many of their own self recorded sessions, a brand new version of the 2004 single ‘Like Rain’ and an exclusive new 2014 song ‘Plainfield’. Mastered to perfection by Maor Appelbaum, this album is a must have for all fans of New Disease and ‘Anthemic’ & ‘huge stadium rock riffs and electronica’ (Metal Hammer /Kerrang).
