Middle Class Rut

Middle Class Rut

When we last saw MIDDLE CLASS RUT, the band was tearing through a North American tour in support of 2010's No Name No Color and hit single "New Low." The song shot to No. 5 at alternative radio, its companion video (http:\bit.lyKetxkv) racked up more than 4 million YouTube views and Middle Class Rut was, as USA Today declared, "on the verge." The Sacramento, CA-based duo of vocalistguitarist Zack Lopez and vocalistdrummer Sean Stockham shared stages with the likes of Muse, Social Distortion, Them Crooked Vultures, Alice In Chains, 30 Seconds To Mars and Linkin Park and more than held their own, drawing rave reviews from NME, the BBC, Alternative Press and Kerrang!, who proclaimed, "Their sound is nothing short of colossal, and one that a mere two-piece shouldn't be able to create, combining the boisterous swagger and pomp of Jane's Addiction and the feral fury of Rage Against the Machine." Added Alternative Press, "it's mind-blowing to witness the sheer depth and complexity of the sound these two guys are capable of unleashing on their own."

Their new album, Pick Up Your Head, is introduced via its electrifying lead single, "Aunt Betty." Says Stockham, "A lot of the songs on the new record, including 'Aunt Betty,' existed as finished demos long before we even set foot in the studio. They were like these elaborate little buildings, finely chiseled, where every ornate detail had a definite purpose. Some needed a facelift, others needed ass implants. In the case of 'Aunt Betty,' she just needed some weight in the bottom end - a new foundation. We chopped her in half at the waist, fed her legs to the wolves, and rebuilt some new stems with thunderous thighs and bunda booty."
