Babylon A.D. release video for their new track Wrecking Machine off upcoming new album

Rockers Babylon A.D. have just released a video for their new song, Wrecking Machine and it will have you rockin in no time. The band which was formed right here in the Bay Area back in 1987 will be releasing their fifth studio album, Rome Wasn’t Built in a Day,  on May 17th via Perris Records. There is one thing for sure, they are definitely back and ready to ROCK just where they left off.

With a couple lineup changes, announcing new members Craig Pepe (bass) and Dylan Soto (drums) joining original band members  Derek Davis (Vocals, Keyboard, Guitar), Ron Freschi (Lead Guitar, Background vocals) and John Mattews (Lead Guitar) they are delivering a solid strong hard rock album that will have you thinking you are back in the late 80s but with modern influences and production techniques.

Derek Davis explains about how the new song Wrecking Machine came about and the back story on the lyrics:

The song came about when lead guitarist John Matthews played me an old cassette tape recording of live music he had done with “Leonard Hayes” drummer for Y&T. I thought the opening riff was really cool and I played the music track a few times in my studio and came up with the idea for the song and lyrics pretty quick. The band then demoed the track and we all decided it was a great song for the album. The video and single came out amazing and we are extremely happy with the way the visual idea and track came together.


You can pick up the new song HERE.  I can’t wait for them to get out and start touring.  They have announced some upcoming tour dates.  One thing was certain, when I say them back in the 80s-90s, they always delivered a fiercely energetic set so I hope you can make it out to any of these shows:
