NARCOTIC WASTELAND, the full-time project of former Nile frontman Dallas Toler-Wade, is set to release a brand new, full-length album, entitled Delirium Tremens, on October 13, 2017 via Megaforce Records/MRI.
In celebration of the announcement, NARCOTIC WASTELAND have dropped the first single from the album, entitled “Faces of Meth”. Check it out HERE.
Narcotic Wasteland started as a side project Dallas Toler- Wade had been working the past few years when he was not touring or in the writing/studio mode with “Nile.” “The more songs I completed for “Narcotic Wasteland,” The more I wanted to put a full band lineup together,” said Dallas.
Toler- Wade asked longtime friend Edwin Rhone (lead guitar/vox) if he was interested, which he was. They both had played in some metal bands together in the early to mid 1990’s. Edwin had later recommended Chris (“Lutachrist”) Dupre for bass/vox.
Dallas stated, “Chris came in and not only knew his parts, but owned them with lots of attitude. So the only thing left was finding a drummer. After trying out several drummers from all over the states over two years, my band mate in “Nile,” George Kollias, recommended Erik Schultek. Erik did not only nail the material, but fit very well to the style and sound of the music.”
The band’s overall concept is very reflective of the city where Dallas, Edwin, and Chris grew up. Fayetteville, North Carolina, a military town, has a PTSD rate of up to 75% in males, and is the highest rated city in the US for Shaken Baby Syndrome. The availability of street drugs is astounding, and the ever growing epidemic of addiction to pharmaceutical drugs is an extremely toxic and unstable environment to grow up and live in.
