Erik Canzona announces his solo debut

The Heavy Guilt frontman’s first album is due out in July

Erik Canzona, frontman for The Heavy Guilt, will release his first solo album this year, tentatively titled The Narrows.

The album was recorded entirely in Canzona's home, and he says in an email that he began writing the songs a few years ago, several of them emerging from collaborations with his roommate and Heavy Guilt bandmate Al Howard, who also provides percussion on the record.

"Al Howard and I share a house, and whenever we're not playing shows or practicing with the Guilt, I'd pick up a guitar and he'd sit at his laptop, and we'd write songs," Canzona says. "After recording and working on it alone in my room over the past year, he is the one that's really pushed me to finish it and get it out there."

The album is being mixed and mastered at Audio Design. In addition to Howard, it also features Jake Najor on drums. While Canzona says that The Heavy Guilt is still writing new material, this new effort will be something different altogether.

"I honestly don't know what you'd consider the style of the record, other than it's a rock album," Canzona says. "All I know is that The Heavy Guilt sounds like all five of us, and this album, for better or worse, sounds like me.

"Creatively, it was freeing," he adds, "but also a little scary, because I didn't have all of the band to bounce things off of."

The Narrows will be released in July.
