Category 7 is the new band featuring vocalist John Bush (Armored Saint, ex-Anthrax), guitarists Phil Demmel (Kerry King, ex-Vio-Lence) and Mike Orlando (Adrenaline Mob), bassist Jack Gibson (Exodus), and drummer Jason Bittner (Overkill, Shadows Fall). The band has already signed with Metal Blade Records and will release their debut album this Summer, with their first single to be unveiled on May 2.

Mike Orlando‘s and Phil Demmel‘s awesome riffs made writing lyrics over the music a piece of cake,” said Bush. “The rhythm tandem of Bittner and Gibson rounded out the sound and the connection felt like it was put together in the stars. Obviously, everyone being a veteran of the metal scene made it that much easier.”

“Happy to welcome Category 7 into the Metal Blade family,” added Metal Blade Records’ founder Brian Slagel. “Of course, some of them are already in! Seriously love working with this crew and it’s great stuff!”
