After years of back and forth with major label Interscope Records, Mickey Avalon is free from his recording contract and is celebrating by releasing his new single "Rock Bottom" digitally and a video for the track online at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wKwZX1QHx_Q . Mickey Avalon is currently in the studio putting the final touches on a new EP for release through Suburban Noize Records later this year.
"The song 'Rock Bottom' is my version of Prince's '1999'," commented Mickey Avalon. "It's all about driving the car until the wheels off and looking fly doing it!"

DJ Khaled, The Game, Lloyd Banks: OHHLA.com Lyrics for 8/26/11
We have new lyrics from A&R, Mary J. Blige, Chi-King, DJ Khaled, Dr. Dre, Fabolous, Governor, Lloyd Banks, Pusha T, Quest Rah, Kanye West and Young Jeezy today on OHHLA.com! Feel free to share or retweet these daily updates.
I decided to do this one a little bit differently... if you've been to the Bandcamp page, you know that I've been working on this album for a long time now... in fact it wasn't even gonna BE an album... and kinda still isn't..totally.. more on that later.
So, if you preorder today, you get rewarded. You get 7 of the songs now, and the rest of the album (there will be 14) on the release date, which is 11/11/11 - SAVE THE DATE!
But wait, there's more. You get the most bang for your buck if you order one of the LIMITED (only 110) CDs, because you not only get the album in the mail, and 7 songs today, the album will have TWO Bonus tracks that aren't available anywhere. Bonus is good.
I never planned on doing this album, but I have to thank the fans who bugged..no..pestered..no.. REQUESTEDthat I complete it. Its a lot more of a song collection and less of a conceptual piece, but there are some really GREAT songs that I'm really proud of.. I wouldn't do it if I didn't feel it.. so THAT's why it's taken so long.
Wanna hear more? like 7 tracks isn't enough to convince you? okay, I'll release ANOTHER Mega Ran 10 song if we get to 4000 Likes on my Facebook page. A daunting challenge.
Yo,as much as I wish I could release the album in October like I planned (10 on 10), I can't because I'll be on the road, doing the TOUR OF A LIFETIME! woot! so make sure you come out and see a brother. all of you who haven't seen a live show have almost NO excuse.
(look out for this poster for sale soon)
get your tickets and email me, because I still have a mission for ya.
