New York multi-instrumentalist David Penna has completed the second release of his progressive hard rock project PENNA, and the EP is released today, November 4th 2017.
Titled ‘SubLevels’, the EP was written and performed entirely by Penna, recorded with assistance from producer Chris Fasulo (Ill Niño, Chico Hamilton) and mastered by Dave Roman (Birdthrower, Leroy Burgess).
The songs on ‘SubLevels’ are aimed to be more progressive and less dark than PENNA’s 2016 debut ‘ChemicalGod’. The EP is available for streaming or as a “Name Your Price” download from Bandcamp.
Penna first came to notoriety in the early 90’s as the drummer with Long Island tech-thrashers Kronin. Since then he has worked with Spastic Ink, Ad Astra, Ronnie Spector, Planet Hate, and members of The Coasters and The Del Vikings. Prior to the PENNA project, he released a solo EDM album, contributed score music for tv / movies, and authored content for several Korg electronic instruments.
While recording ‘SubLevels’, Penna also coordinated the worldwide re-release of Kronin’s sole full-length ‘How Do You Start This Thing?’ on No Dust Records. This coincided with the Lightyear Entertainment / Sony Pictures re-release of “Get Thrashed” in which Kronin’s music was featured.
