Free Recovery is proud to announce that since the release of its Debut EP on the 21st August 2015, is has received recognition from, none other than, Classic Rock Magazine!
The whole of our band has grown up reading Classic Rock Magazine and revered the artists that we read about; so we are very stoked have been recognized by team rock, and included in their awesome magazine. It is a little dream come true for us.
Our Summer is Dead by Free Recovery – Track 6 – Stone Deaf Forever.
The second track of our self-titled EP 'Our Summer Is Dead" (#OSID), one of our harder hitting tracks, was included on the CD sold with Classic Rock Magazine, issue 220 - March edition. The CD included with the March edition was titled 'Stone Deaf Forever' and features a compilation of tracks from some of the most up and coming Stoner Rock bands from all over the world. Actually, team rock describes it best:
Stone Deaf Forever
Blow your mind and other organs with 15 songs from the world’s greatest, dirtiest new rock’n’roll bands – all born to raise hell. Including Thunderchief, Savage Hearts, Free Recovery, Snakewine and more…
Not only is “Our Summer Is Dead” listed at track 6 on this CD, but it also stands out as one of the best-sounding tracks on the compilation. It really does show how much effort we put into recording the EP and how awesome our producer David Needham is. Dave from Dark Horse Studios in Surrey singlehandedly produced, mixed and mastered the EP and we are extremely proud of what he has done for us. His excellence has really shone through on ‘Stone Deaf Forever.’
We are grateful to all that have helped make this possible, especially Ken McIntyre, and hope that anyone who listens to the CD really enjoys “Our Summer is Dead.”
Once gain thanks to TeamRock for giving us deserving recognition.
Peace, Love & Rock ?

There is no doubt that David Bowie has shaped generations of artists throughout the world. Having died peacefully from cancer, aged 69, he will be sadly missed. Bowie was possibly one of the most creative musicians that the world has ever seen; he was always redefining sound and art as we knew it.
David Bowie Live in Montreal
Having explored just about every style possible, it is no wonder that Bowie has managed to influence almost every genre of music imaginable. This includes the massive influence that he had on rock bands, including grunge bands. Bowie was covered by just about every grunge band in the 90’s and Bowie himself covered a few songs from his favourite grunge bands; for example, ‘Cactus’ by the Pixies. Clearly Bowie was a bit of a grunge fan and, for what it’s worth, we liked him too – the dude totally rocked… and may be Rock In Peace \m/
