The Songs on Death To The Mckenzies first album, Control Theory are rooted in philosophy. They are about love, religion, hypocracy, psychology and the release of control in order to obtain a state of enlightenment.
Their debut album "Control Theory," is now on sale nationwide. It contains 12 tracks ranging from the fast tempo grunge, "A Storm is Coming," to the modern rock hit "La La Land" and even a few slower emotional rock songs like the best selling single "Suicide Note." It's Grunge, Punk, New Wave...it's the truth, with distortion.

The Truth....With Distortion
To make a long story short, Death to the McKenzie's has been a long time coming. My first attempt was in a band called "The Freeloaders." Buster Highman and I started this band together with a guy named Abel Rives and we were a typical Garage band that had song writing talent but played and performed like crap. The band broke up after a year and on hiatus Buster and I began to improve our playing abilities and we formed a band called "For Tomorrow." This band produced an EP, a live DVD and One music video for a song entitled "The Xmas Song." Recording began to take a backseat to life, practices grew further and further between and eventually "For Tomorrow" was forgotten tomorrow.
On this hiatus I began a solo project, going solely by the name of Paul Perez. I released five albums, including "Anthology," "Left Behind," "Death To The McKenzie's," Fade to Black," "Life On Omega 3,"Experiments Gone Awry (full of b-sides and rarities) and finally "Existence Precedes Meaning." That was fun for a awhile but I missed jamming and collaborating with others so I formed "Death To The McKenzie's." The name was based on my third solo records title.
Death To The McKenzie's is now Paul Perez on Guitar, Vocals, Bass and Drums, Buster Highman collaborating on some Drums and Mama Firefly on Vocals. We decided to make our first release a big one and so we are releasing "Control Theory," a double disc album that is now two years in the making and has at times been just as much a curse as a blessing to create. The album features 29 tracks. The first disc "In Theory" is faster rock and poppier, catchy tunes. The second disc "Self fulfilling Prophecy," is more moderate rock with sullen, but deeper, emotional songs. We expect a release in late June and hopefully a tour to follow thereafter.
So if you're interested in "the truth, with distortion," then check out "Death To The McKenzie's."
