Locals Only: Fade to Black Gear Up for Mac's Show
Lansing-based rockers Fade to Black are on the up. The band's latest studio album, 2010's hard-hitting "Black is Back," has scored heavy airplay on FM radio, satellite and Internet radio in the U.S., Canada, Italy and the U.K. "Hey Baby," their current single, is No. 2 on the Reverbnation local metal chart.
Then, in February of this year, the guys released their first-ever live album, "Live in Lansing," and went on to play a thick run of shows throughout the summer. Now, Fade to Black are in the process to taping their new studio album, which they're calling "G Street Panorama," with Lansing-based sound engineer Ian Walker. Expect an early 2012 release from the guys.
