AUTOGRAPH, who recently signed a deal with EMP Label Group, will release their forthcoming album, Get Off Your Ass on October 6th on CD and Digital, with a limited edition vinyl LP version available in November. Pre-order the new album ath the EMP website HERE. A video for the album’s title track has been launched and you can check it out on KNAC.COM HERE.

Get Off Your Ass is the first official studio LP from the revamped quartet, featuring original/founding members guitarist Steve Lynch and bassist Randy Rand, alongside new vocalist/rhythm guitarist Simon Daniels, and drummer Marc Wieland.

Lynch, an iconic guitarist, revered Worldwide as a bona fide guitar hero (known for his signature 8 finger hammer-on technique), reactivated the band in 2013 with bassist Randy Rand after reconnecting at the NAMM Show. After approaching original vocalist Steve Plunkett, who was unavailable for the reunion due to other business interests, with his blessing, the newly resurrected AUTOGRAPH recruited former JAILHOUSE vocalist Simon Daniels, the rest, as they say, is history.

Get Off Your Ass features an updated, hard-edged (and keyboard free) sound for the band, featuring down-tuned guitars, and the fiery, blues-soaked delivery of Daniels, as evidenced on tracks like “Every Generation”, “I Lost My Mind In America”, and the first single, edgy title track “Get Off Your Ass”. The album also features an updated live version of the band’s classic rock staple “Turn Up The Radio”, performed by the current lineup.

Says co-founder, guitarist Steve Lynch, “Get Off Your Ass definitely sets a new direction for the band, with an updated, heavier sound, while still retaining the signature melodic hooks people have come to expect from AUTOGRAPH. This record is bound to get the attention of old AUTOGRAPH fans as well as the new. So put your ears on and turn this one up!"

Adds vocalist Simon Daniels, “We are so excited about this record! This is a lineup of brothers with a vision and the perfect chemistry. We wanted the record to be musically timeless, and translate a heavier sound featuring the melodies and harmonies, but with heavier guitars and a more “in your face” attitude. The lyrics come from the heart and are directed to people of our current era, with uplifting messages and positive energy. It’s AUTOGRAPH on steroids.”

On their partnership with EMP Daniels adds, “EMP is the perfect match for us. They understand what we're doing, they have the same vision and we are grateful to work with such great experienced humble focused achieving people!”

A sentiment echoed by drummer Marc Wieland. “EMP shares and supports the same vision we had for our new album Get Off Your Ass. We are stoked to be part of their family!”

EMP President (and MEGADETH bassist) David Ellefson expresses a mutual admiration. “When I first moved to LA to go to MI (then known as GIT), Steve Lynch was the guy Everybody went there to learn from. As far as guitar players in LA went, he was The guy. I never did end up at GIT, we formed MEGADETH and obviously went down an extremely different path, but Steve truly is an iconic guitar hero of the highest caliber, and I am so proud for EMP to be able to partner with him and the re-imagined AUTOGRAPH to release this killer album.”

  • “Get Off Your Ass”
  • “Every Generation”
  • “All I Own”
