Clan Destine's New Album "Operation Peace" Set To Be Released This Fall

Aug 14, 2008
The Phoenix based Native American group Clan Destine II are finishing up work on their new album, "Operation Peace" at Trampled Fruit Records right now and are looking to release this much awaited opus sometime soon in the early fall of 2008. They have spent almost every day in the studio since January 2008 and have been working diligently to make "Operation Peace" truly unique!

"Operation Peace" is like no other music around right now, and is unlike anything that the band has released in the past. "This is the first time any of us have tracked like this." Says David A. Montour, founding member of the original Clan Destine, and the newly revamped Clan Destine II. "Most of these guys have only done live recording, if anything at all." In the past Clan Destine have done a lot of music with a heavy Native American style and a twist of the blues and pop. But since the line-up has changed, so has the way their new music is being collaborated, tracked and rendered.

Today, Clan Destine II is made up of three of its original members, David A. Montour, Juan "Cano" Sanchez, and Chuck "Riptide" Harris, and relatively new additions Mike de la Torre on drums, Matt Vaiza on turntables and percussion, and Rachel Villa doing vocals. This eclectic mix of Native American, Spanish, blues, hip-hop, rock, reggae and honky-tonk influences make "Operation Peace" one of the wildest trips you'll ever go on. The album has some really amazing tracks on it that hit you from every angle. "There's something for everyone" says founding member Cano Sanchez. And he's right. "Operation Peace" rocks harder than anything that the band has put out in the past, but it still has the subtlety of previous achievements. The album will keep you dancing and entertained through its insane mix of styles and rhythms.

"Almost all of the albums we've done in the past have been live recordings on a sound stage" says Sanchez. The band currently has four previous albums, one of the most successful being "Deeply Rooted" (released July 4, 1999). Clan/Destine released their first self-titled album in 1996 on Canyon Records. In 1999 Cano Sanchez released an EP called "Human", from which some of the songs have been re-recorded for "Operation Peace". And in 2000 Clan/Destine released "Amajacoustic". While each of these previous albums was a success, none of them have come close to the style and freedom achieved on "Operation Peace".

Since beginning their venture with Trampled Fruit Records in December of 2007 with a recording for the documentary "Poison Wind"; a single titled "Breeze In The Wind", the band has had the unique opportunity to record in a much more relaxed environment and really take their time with every track. By tracking each instrument and voice individually, and by taking time with every song they can hone and perfect every instrument and voice like they never could before. Much of this is because of the benefit of recording in a higher end project studio like Trampled Fruit. This kind of recording gives you nearly the same sound and quality as the large, high-end studios, but without the huge overhead and expense. With this set-up the band is able to record a full-length album over a period of 8 months for less than a third of the cost of a full-scale production studio. The technology of the day allows artists to truly use the studio as their canvas in a way they never could before.

As of August Clan Destine II has entered the final phase of recording and are currently mixing and preparing to master "Operation Peace" This ground breaking album really does have what it takes to move Clan Destine II to the top of the charts and do for tomorrow's music, what the Pixies and Nirvana did for grunge!
