Corporate Punishment Sign Never Enough

posted June 8, 2007

Corporate Punishment Sign Never EnoughCorporate Punishment is proud to announce the signing of Orange County’s Never Enough (aka N3V3R 3N0U6H), the new project featuring Eighteen Visions’ guitarist (and ex-Throwdown vocalist/Death by Stereo guitarist) Keith Barney and Drummer Trevor Friedrich, and Lylah Vocalist/Guitarist Norman Matthew.

The band will release their self produced, as-yet-untitled, debut EP on 9/11 via Corporate Punishment/Koch.

Said Guitarist/Producer Barney, "N3 is an outlet for all the love, rage and sadness in our lives. We know there are people out there that are just like us, people who still truly care about what's going on in the world around them and not just what's right in front of them."

On differences from his past project Barney adds, "lyrically we touch on politics and some other things which never happened in 18v. It's more message and idea driven, really trying to connect with people. There are songs that hit every spectrum of emotions - heavy and pissed, quiet and personal. It’s really important to me that people don’t just see this as an 18V spin-off."

As for the numbers, "everything is based in numbers- population, salaries, status, polls. Numbers represent a lot of the bad things in the world and the letters represent communication and the things we need more of. People just can't seem to fucking get enough. Can't kill enough. Can't steal enough. Can't get thin enough. Can't get rich enough. You name it and people want more of it."

The band has posted several new tracks on their MySpace.

A perpetually touring underground favorite, Eighteen Visions released 6 full length LP's and a string of EP's and 7 inches, racking up sales well in excess of a quarter million records, before announcing their break-up in early 2007, less than a year after releasing their Epic/Sony debut 18Visions, which debuted in the Billboard top 200 (as did it's predecessor the Trustkill released Obsession), selling over 12,000 copies the first week. 18V also spawned the #15 Rock single "Victim" (which also served as the theme for WWE PPV event "Vengeance"), and successful worldwide tours with the likes of Avenged Sevenfold, Killswitch Engage, Him, Lostprophets, Hinder, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Coheed and Cambria, Bullet for My Valentine, Deftones, Thrice, and more.

Lylah, the brainchild of vocalist/guitarist Norman Matthew formed in El Paso, Texas, in the late 90's, after the demise of his previous project, Supersoul (where he met Corporate Punishment founders Thom Hazaert and Eric Nielsen, after a fateful midnight performance at LA's legendary Whiskey a Go-Go), have since become an underground phenomenon of their own, appearing at dates on the Vans Warped Tour from 2003-2005, and alongside artists like Evanescence, Static-X, and more, with supporters including fellow Texan Al Jourgensen, who has since recruited Matthew as an engineer for an upcoming Ministry release.
