Product Notes

Eight years since the hard-core/metal band Time of Need first formed, they have managed to reach many goals set forth by themselves. Most impressive of those goals would be the completion of their fifth album titled 'A New Day'. 'To be able to have the fan support to make five albums means a lot to us.' Says Heaps, guitarist and lead vocalist of the band. 'We have managed to make a nice name for ourselves over the years, our album sales are at a point where we can afford to make each album just a little bit better than the last. We have no label support or anything like that, so everything we do is on our own. I guess we are a little more blessed than some to be able to make an album that costs us ten thousand dollars. I know for a lot of bands on certain labels, that's not a lot of money to put into a CD, hell that is probably one day's worth of recording for them, but for us it's a lot of money!' It doesn't take long to realize Time of Need sets their standards a little higher than most unsigned talent that exists today. Time of Need has always been about making the heaviest, insane music they could but after hearing a few songs off of 'A New Day', it's clear that they have also complemented the mix with melody. The songs off of this album leave quite an impression; they have that 'something' that leaves you humming them in your head for hours after listening to them. 'Adding hooks to the songs was something we really focused on this time around. We felt that was a major element to our writing we never took advantage of before. Adding a more defined hook and a better sense of melody was definitely a much higher priority this time around.' Adds Heaps. The band also sought out the familiar settings of Trax East studios and producer Erik Kovortek, who produced the bands last album 'Seen Through A Shadow'. 'No doubt having Erik there for the second time helped us to make this album that much better. It's so much more than the normal local band going to record a few songs at the local studio with someone who may or may not be into the style of music they play.' Says Heaps. If you ever get the chance to see this quartet out of Allentown, PA perform live, do so! The energy that the band puts into each song they perform invigorates the crowd. You can't help but move your body in some way while watching them. The band commands that with such a lively stage presence. Their insane live performance and loyal local following gave the band the opportunity to open for a few well known national acts in 2002. Sharing the stage with such bands as: 40 Below Summer, Candiria, Diecast, Catastrophic and hard-core legends Biohazard, really helped to boost the band's already growing fan base. 2002 was also a year in which the band changed their lineup by replacing ex-guitarist Mike Ernstam with current guitarist John Parker. 'Parting ways with Mike after almost two years together wasn't the easiest of things to do but it was what needed to be done. Our creative differences were just starting to become more and more apparent in the writing process, so the only fair thing to do was to part ways. We did, however, get very lucky by finding John as a replacement. He adds that little something we were missing, his creative instincts and energy on stage really add to the band.' Says Heaps. There is no doubt that 2003 will be the 'year of the Need'. This band seems to have all the elements needed to succeed; a killer live show that is second to none, a new CD that will stomp a hole in you and the dedication needed to persevere through the good and the bad. 'One thing that will always put us above the rest is our ability to never give up. No matter what life throws our way, we seem to overcome it and actually become stronger for it. We have four people in this band that love and respect each other and it's hard to imagine any goals being to out of reach. We are a family of four that works as one, and any band that has that kind of bond can not be denied great things.' Says Heaps. I can't predict if Time of Need will ever get to the point where they are playing in front of thousands of people every show, or get the major label interest that every unsigned band looks for, but I do know for sure that they have a great chance and will die trying.
