BEL AIR —Los Angeles-based alternative-rock band ACIDIC has signed with powerhouse duo The Wizard of Oz [Andrew Bojanic and Liz Hooper] to produce their next album. The Wizard of Oz have previously worked with artists such as Liz Phair, Avril Lavigne, Hawk Nelson and Krystal Meyers.
The past songs written by the team have topped European and Asian charts and were featured in many TV shows such as “Heroes” and “Desperate Housewives” as well as films “Two For The Money,” “Zoom” and “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.”
Lead singer/guitarist Michael Gossard tells Canyon News, “When Andrew and Liz took an interest in us, we were very excited – it’s a dream come true to work with producers of this caliber.”
ACIDIC count their musical influences from Led Zeppelin to Coldplay to the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and their music has been compared to the Foo Fighters, Franz Ferdinand, Modest Mouse and Queens of the Stone Age.
The as-yet untitled CD is expected to be released in the first quarter of 2010.
