First off, our summer tour was a BLAST. Thanks so much to everyone that fed us beer, offered a basement, or gave Derek pizza! We'll type up a real list of all the tour winners later. For now though, shit ruled. Moving on.
BRAINWRECK, our first full length CD comes out SEPTEMBER 9TH. Mark your calendars. The packaging is fucking awesome. Prolly better than the song writing. Check back soon for the pre-order package (CD+SHIRT+POSTER!).
Lastly, we're going back on tour SEPTEMBER 19TH to promote the CD and party with all you maniacs across the US. The tour is 7 weeks and will lead us all the way to the west coast and back in time to play THE FEST 7 in Florida. We are beyond stoked. Bro.

Speed is Derek, Kallen, Peter, Ricky and Jonah.
The current Ramming Speed line up played its first show in January of
'07 (previously the band played with a different drummer under the band
name Despotic Robot) and has since played slighty over 80 shows including
one full US and one east coast tour to support a self released 7"
record. While the 45 touched on fairly "serious" topics such
as pizza parties and blue tooth phones the band returned from tour with
a slightly different mind set. Ramming Speed experienced in 6 weeks
what many bands never come across in a life time. The "Speed Boat"
broke down in the middle of the desert one day, the band was filmed
for an LA reality tv show "Beach Patrol" the next, and two
evenings later the whole gang was arrested at gun point out side San
Francisco for suspected kidnapping (charges were later dropped after
"false report of a crime" fines were paid). These experiences
merely scratch the surface of a tour that also included riot cops and
a Hells Angles 4th of July party. Needless to say Ramming Speed came
home road hardend and ready to write a pissed off, fast fucking record.
This time around the music and lyrics are far more aggressive and poinient.
Topics covered include American xenophobia, terrorist paranoia, and
the metal scene's aversion to politics, while musically the metal begins
to grind just as hard as it thrashes. Read close and you'll still find
a song about a zombie killing lawyer, a party anthem about thors hammer,
and hear absolutely face melting guitar solos, but these are all tucked
between heartfelt rants on current events and the world the band experienced
on the road.
is scheduled to drop towards the end of May and the band is scheduled
to do a two week east coast tour with Sweden's The Arson Project to
promote the record followed by a full US tour in late June.
