This new DOUBLE album marks a major shift towards a highly progressive direction with founder Riz Story performing all instrumentation in a rare display of virtuosity, as well as producing, mixing and mastering. Featuring a guest lead vocal appearance by YES vocalist (and former ANYONE member) Jon Davison on the song “Misanthropist.” BILLBOARD MAGAZINE said, “ANYONE has invented a new breed of rock, quite literally.”

EXCLUSIVE ALBUM PREVIEW (https://www.anyoneden.net/exclusive-album-preview)

Says Riz, “This album was conceived as a soundtrack to my feature film (and novel) of the same title and so it is highly conceptual and dynamic. The story takes place in the future when mankind has made the earth uninhabitable and venture into the cosmos to find a planet that is even more beautiful than earth, which they immediately begin to destroy. I wanted to explore the outer limits of my creativity and musicianship and pushed myself to play all the instruments, particularly the drums, in a way that was experimental and exploratory. Most all of the playing was improvised, and therefore came from a place free of thought or design. All told, I’ve been working on this album for almost a decade.”

ANYONE was formed by Riz Story, along with Jon Davison (Yes) and Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters) in the early 90’s in Laguna Beach, California. Hawkins and Davison were replaced by the time the band signed with RoadRunner Records in 2000. Their self-titled debut album received much critical acclaim including a 5-star rating from Rolling Stone. In October of 2016 the single “Fly Away” was featured in Story’s debut feature film “A Winter Rose” and became the most listened to rock song in America on digital formats, hitting #1 on the DRT National Airplay Rock Chart. The 2020 album release of “On the ending earth…” was met with widespread critical acclaim.

Critically Acclaimed Rock Band ANYONE To Release Third Album “On the ending earth”

For Immediate Release

Critically Acclaimed Rock Band ANYONE To Release Third Album “On the ending earth”

“The band’s sound conjures such influences as Led Zeppelin, Tool, and Rush.” – Billboard Magazine

TogethermenT Records is proud to announce the release of the third full-length studio album by the critically acclaimed rock band ANYONE. The album is entitled “On the ending earth” and was released on August 21st. The album is available in download, streaming and CD on over 200 digital distributors including iTunes, Spotify and Amazon.

The band are currently streaming “Sip The Pleasure of Days” via the official website. BILLBOARD MAGAZINE said, “ANYONE has invented a new breed of rock, quite literally, and this new track lives up to that proclamation as the band’s sound conjures such influences as Led Zeppelin, Tool, and Rush.”

ANYONE was formed by Riz Story, along with Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters) and Jon Davison (Yes) in the mid 90’s in Laguna Beach, California. Hawkins and Davison left and were replaced by the time the band signed with RoadRunner Records in 2000. Their self-titled debut album received much critical acclaim including a 5-star rating from Rolling Stone. In October of 2016 the single “Fly Away” was featured in Story’s debut feature film “A Winter Rose” and became the most listened to rock song in the nation on digital formats, hitting #1 on the DRT National Airplay Rock Chart. Other musicians of note that have been members of ANYONE include David Silveria (Korn) and guitarist Gretchen Menn.

For this new release, Riz plays all of the instruments. The album features 3 guest musicians; Jon Davidson (YES) played fretless bass on “Thought I Was” and Miles Martin played bass on “Sip The Pleasure of Days” and Ethereal played piano on “A Brief Sparkle in the Nothingness.”

Says Riz, “‘On the ending earth…’’ deals with the themes of the collapse and extinction. Lyrically it is filled with references to the annihilation of nature and the senseless destruction and suffering mankind brings upon itself. Songs like ‘It’s Already Too Late’ and ‘Lament’ express the mourning of vanishing species and consider that humanity is dooming itself to the same fate. ‘Mother Superior’ is a meditation on how mankind has so greatly damaged ‘Mother’ earth. These themes run throughout the entire album and clearly reflect the troubling times we live in, in which everything from civic order to the planet’s biosystems seem to be in full collapse. The album’s longer tracks, ‘All That Lives is Born to Die’ and ‘A Brief Sparkle in the Nothingness’ both explore the human reaction to living in such dystopian times. And the final track, ‘Fade To Black’ is an apocalyptic ode to humanity with its recurring lyric, ‘Fade away, because you’re only a stain on the time.’”
