Atenzia presents PLUNGE

  PLuNgE !!!

The Baltimore three-piece Plunge has with "Hometown Hero" recorded a collection of songs that meld the power of punk with an innate sense of melodic pop and rock. The young band has been taking the US East Coast club scene by storm, playing close to 250 shows a year since they debuted. The groups front man Mike Ruocco is also the bass player and backing vocalist of RCA gold recording artist SR-71, having spent nearly a year writing, recording and touring with this major label band Mike has brought these experience back to Plunge, and together with his partners bass player Brian Magill and drummer Mac Calvaresi he has been working hard with creating this massive debut album. The album was produced by the band together with Scot Spelbring (Marvellous 3, SR-71) and was mixed by Jeff Juliano (Dave Matthews, John Mayer, Jason Mraz).

The true beauty of “Hometown Hero” is the way in which the band manages to maintain a delicate balance of blistering guitar and irresistible hooks, resulting in the perfect pop of "Part Time Girlfriend" (click title for mp3 snippet) and the gentle twang of the title track "Hometown Hero” (click title for mp3 snippet).

With all that is inside the album; the song-forms and production reveal sublime new facets upon each hearing, straight ahead rock with elements of alternative, punk and pop presented in a jaw-dropping musical package. With a host of infectious pop tunes, tear jerking ballads and balls to the wall rock anthems - Plunge got it all and is ready to show you all how it's done! Release: 20th October /2004. http://www.atenzia.com
