RECOVERY COUNCIL Announces January Release of Third Album Plan-Do-Check-Act on Dot Ultra Records

| 29 November 2012 | Reply

Geek chicks sure can rock out and Rebeca Qualls is living proof. New Jersey-based RECOVERY COUNCIL began as Qualls’ nerdy lo-fi space rock solo project in grad school but has evolved into a power trio juggernaut with a heavy rock nucleus and a new album Plan-Do-Check-Act to be released January 15th on Dot Ultra RecordsPlan-Do-Check-Act isRECOVERY COUNCIL’s third full-length studio album but the first release since becoming a full band in the summer of 2011. While the band’s sound has taken a more raucous turn, Qualls continues to exude her inner geek with lyrical introspect and technical allusion.

RECOVERY COUNCIL will be hitting the road throughout the winter showcasing music from Plan-Do-Check-Act. A current listing of shows includes an upcoming gig December 7 at Le Grand Fromage in Atlantic City, where dry goods will be collected for Hurricane Sandy victims and the door proceeds will go to restore damage sustained by the venue. Qualls says of the event, “Knowing Atlantic City was one of the harder hit areas, we were surprised to find out that the venue was still open, although the first floor had been affected. We will be donating all of our door proceeds toward their restoration efforts. It’s a great way to support live music and help keep a good local venue running.”

RECOVERY COUNCIL is Qualls on guitar and vocals, along with New Jersey native Jeff Trenholm on drums and Dominican Republic-born Isidro Santos on bass. Since becoming a band in 2011, their collective influences have lent themselves to their rhythm-driven, melodic style. Qualls cites post-punk influences such as Husker Du and Helmet, but relies on her metal and rock roots dating back to her childhood, beginning with Iron Maiden, early Metallica, and Rush. The latter also made a big impact on Trenholm in his formative years, in addition to The Cure and Pink Floyd. Meanwhile, Santos found his niche in early-mid ’90s rock, including Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nirvana, and Dominican-based Toque Profundo. Plan-Do-Check-Act captures a moment in time where the three musicians’ unique styles and backgrounds perfectly intersect as a cohesive whole.
