The EP was released on digital format July 9 and can be purchased from iTunes.
Topless is the band’s third offering, one demonstrative of their continuing musical evolution. Following up the band’s raucous 2014 EP Top to Bottom (HPGD Productions), the new EP features ON TOP’s signature rock/metal blend heard on the previous two releases multiplied by 10. Topless contains more aggressive, yet dynamic vocals; a broader array of hooks, tastier licks, dynamite drums, and a much fatter production.
Topless was recorded at Tribe Sound Studios in West Chester, Pennsylvania, engineered by Brian Davis, and mix/mastered by Chris “The Wizard” Collier (KXM, Lynch Mob).
