IMPLANTS – an “alternative punk” supergroup that features Ken Conte (THE TANK) on vocals, Jim Blowers (PULLEY) and Rob Ramos (STRUNG OUT) both on guitar, Chris Del Rio (TEN FOOT POLE) on bass and Chris Dalley (VOODOO GLOW SKULLS and also TEN FOOT POLE) – have announced that they have signed to Cyber Tracks, a label owned by NOFX guitarist El Hefe.
Drummer Chris Dalley on the signing:
To me personally, they have so much knowledge in the music business, and they really believe in our band. It was an easy win-win decision for us.
IMPLANTS appear to have been in the studio working on new material with Ryan Greene, who has produced albums by numerous California punk bands like NOFX, NO USE FOR A NAME, LAGWAGON, GOOD RIDDANCE, TEN FOOT POLE, and GUTTERMOUTH. El Hefe comments:
I’ve known all the guys forever, and when I found out they were working with Ryan Greene I knew they were really on to something.
El Hefes wife Jen also comments:
After we released our first album, as a label we weren’t sure which direction to take. Once we heard Implants and the amazing record they were finishing up, the decision was a no-brainer. It is an honor to work with such a great band, and there is nothing cooler than doing business with your friends. I feel that we have created a power team with Ryan Greene, five talented punk veterans and my husband as the ingredients.
