Rubicon Cross, featuring award winning vocalist C J Snare (from multi-Platinum selling, world renowned band, Firehouse) and guitar virtuoso Chris Green (of Pride/Furyon) will release its debut, self-titled, full-length record on May 19, 2014, on INgrooves.
Now hailing from Chicago, C J Snare and Chris Green first met while on tour in Europe when they shared the stage at a rock festival in Madrid. A close friendship was forged through sharing a decade of life experience that would ultimately serve as the creative nucleus for this project.
It was clear from their very first collaboration that the songs they were writing needed to be released separately from their other pursuits. Together they formed RUBICON CROSS. With the addition ofPride/Furyon bassist Simon Farmery (who co-wrote, “Save Me Within”), Seventh Omen drummer Robert Behnke, and second guitarist Jeff Lerman, RUBICON CROSS became a band of brothers, willing to tackle the music, the road, and bring life to these songs of fight, commitment, and connection.
The lush melodic core of the songwriting is given a forceful, aggressive boost on this record. From the first single, “Bleed With Me” that starts just as propulsive as it ends to “Kill Or Be Killed” that has a relentless metal drive, RUBICON CROSS is a collection of contemporary heavy music that sits just as comfortably next to hard rock classics as it does modern rock upstarts. “Locked and Loaded” is featured in the Xbox360 and PS3 game “Dirt Showdown” along side of new rock heavy-hitters Rise Against, Rival Sons and The Parlor Mob.
