STEVEN DEAL: RADIO TWELVE After a 10+ year writing hiatus, singer-songwriter Steven Deal (ex-Bleached Black, Chopper, and Absolute Zeros) returns with the pop punk album he's always wanted to record. Clocking in at under 40 minutes total running time, RADIO TWELVE is his first solo album ever, 11 'hate' songs, beer and brandy-soaked pop anthems, stories of romantic misery, self-loathing and megalomania. With a little help from his friends Dan Kohler (Naomi Star), Lisa Hammer (Requiem In White, Mors Syphilitica, and of the TV series 'The Venture Brothers'), Chris Cretella, and Dave Parmelee, Mr. Deal has offered a window to the world of disappointment, unfulfilled promise and resentment, all the while never losing a keen pop sensibility or lyrical prowess. Semi-autobiographical and very real, RADIO TWELVE is a concise damnation of the romantic condition. Due out in early September 2009.
