Cocksure, the duo featuring Chris Connelly and Jason Novak, has announced the release of the sophomore album, titled Corporate Sting, due out on August 21 via Metropolis Records. This marks the band’s second album for the prestigious imprint, having had three releases in 2014 on different labels, and following one year to the date of the previous full-length album, TVMALSV. Produced entirely by Conelly and Novak at Cracknation Studios, Corporate Sting will feature a “guest memo” written by published author and Marvel Comics writer Duane Swieczynski, as well as the band’s cover of Severed Heads’ “Harold and Cindy Hospital.” Additionally, Severed Heads will appear with Cocksure at the fourth annual ColdWaves festival, taking place in Chicago on September 25-26.
Connelly and Novak, both renowned figures in the industrial and underground alternative music scenes, first formed Cocksure in late 2013, drawing on their collective histories combined with an aesthetic significantly influences by the WaxTrax! era. The debut full-length album TVMALSV reached the #2 position on ReGen‘s Top 20 Albums of 2014, while the TKO Mindfuck vinyl/digital EP, the first new release from the resurrected WaxTrax! Records, made #3 on the Top 10 EPs of 2014.
