Comprised of two Dallas Cowboys, Marc Colombo and Leonard Davis and Miami Dolphin Cory Procter, Free Reign is certainly a larger than life heavy metal crew. With the line-up rounded out by non-footballer and accomplished guitarist Justin Chapman, the quartet is readying the release of an all-new single, “One Step Away,” which follows up on the promise of last year’s five-song release, ‘Tragedy.’
The “One Step Away” single goes on sale via iTunes and all digital sales providers on Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011.
Free Reign’s vocalist/guitarist Marc Colombo explains,
“‘One Step Away’ is a song about feeling close to success – whether it’d be a band that has worked so hard but could not quite reach their dream, or a team/player that’s accomplished so much but a championship just seems to allude them. What keeps people coming back is the idea that maybe this time nothing will stand in your way of achieving your ultimate goal.”
“One Step Away” will be released by the band via their own label, DC Rightside Music, and a new, full-length studio album titled ‘Heavier Than Metal’ will follow-up the single in April 2011.
Recently, Free Reign won Revolver Magazine’s Golden Gods Award, for “Most Metal Athletes.”
In the group, right tackle Colombo handles vocals, right guard Davis handles bass, and center/guard Procter mans the drums.
Immediately upon hitting the metal scene, Free Reign was heralded by some of hard rock/heavy metal’s most recognizable names, including Black Label Society’s Zakk Wylde commented “Free Reign kicks ass! These guys will pound you into submission, check them out now!”, and Twisted Sister’s Eddie Ojeda had this to say “These guys are Twisted Cowboys, I love it…horns up!!”.
And with the impending arrival of “One Step Away,” Free Reign are quickly becoming a true hard rocking powerhouse.
