Major Producer to Record San Diego’s Given Life

Alpine, CA, October 02, 2008 --( Local musicians Given Life have enlisted the help of producer Fred Archambault (Avenged Sevenfold, Deftones, The Confession) for several fast-approaching recording sessions. The San Diego based quartet is slated to begin with Archambault in mid-October. The band has a hard-hitting, progressive metal sound. Ryan Holmes, Michael Ellison, Jeff Siebrand and Rich DuCharme are Given Life.

Their first full-length original self-titled cd These Days was recorded, mixed and mastered by Jeff Forrest of Double Time Studios in 2006. They have enjoyed over 30 contests and shows in San Diego, Hollywood and Arizona, since. Given Life was formed with the desire to create powerful music and have a great time doing it.
