Cubic Feet Debuts New Album Ten Years After the 9/11 Release of Their Last Album

Singer/Songwriter Mark Davison Revamps Gems From His Popular '90s Band Along With Eight New Tracks on "The Living End: Then and Now"

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 15, 2011) - Sometimes just when you think the party's over, it's merely a cool musical hiatus before "The Living End."

In 2002, Mark Davison was vacationing in St. Thomas, taking some much needed chill time and celebrating the recent release of "Superconnector," the fourth album by Cubic Feet (www.cubicfeet.com), the popular indie band the singer/songwriter founded in the mid-'80s with guitarist/keyboardist Woody Lissauer.

He got wind that their song "Hold On Me" was #2 on "8 at 8" on Pirate Radio U.S. Virgin Islands and immediately contacted the station's program director. Davison soon returned to the island, this time with the full ensemble, headlining the station's First Annual Birthday Bash at Bolongo Bay -- which turned out to be one of the final live performances by Cubic Feet. But you can't keep a great band down forever -- especially when some of their best material has never been officially released.

"Superconnector" had the odd fortune to be released on 9/11, a day when the world changed and music was far from everyone's thoughts. Ten years later, Davison and Lissauer celebrate life and affirm the power of music with the release (April 4 on iTunes, May 5 on CD) of "The Living End: Then and Now," a specially-priced double CD set. It features a 13-track "Best Of" collection from Cubic Feet's four previous albums, and a bonus disc featuring eight new songs including "The Living End," a mid-tempo rootsy blues rocker hitting airwaves May 2-3.

In May 2011, the Baltimore-area based Davison will perform with Lissauer at the Dewey Beach High Tide Jamfest in Dewey Beach, Delaware. Davison will debut "The Living End: Then and Now" at the NON-COMM Convention in Wilmington, a gathering of noncommercial radio stations (mostly Triple AAA) May 19-21.

A common thread on all the Cubic Feet material on the project is producer Pete Solley, best known for his seminal work with Oingo Boingo and The Romantics. Solley also produced Nuke the Soup's "Make Waves Not War" -- another band lead by Davison which the singer describes as "looser, with more of an island, surf and skiing vibe."
