Lock 13

Lock 13


Catchy in your face rock with Big melodic choruses.


Lock 13 was brought to fruition in 2001. Throughout the beginning years, the band made various studio recordings. The first, a self-produced 7-song EP which initially became popular around the Birmingham rock scene, soon caught the attention of L.A. producer, Michael Raphael (former guitarist of Neve).
At Raphael’s Studio ‘Earthtone Sounds,’ the group recorded their second EP, which helped establish the group as a mainstay on the local scene. The EP also received frequent mainstream radio play from stations in Atlanta, Pensacola, Panama City, New Orleans, Myrtle Beach, Ft. Walton, Mobile, Birmingham, Los Angeles, and even Holland.

After a few years, Lock 13 was discovered by SOiL bassist Tim King. He sent them to his hometown of Chicago, IL to record a 3-song demo with producer Tadpole at Rax Trax. Tadpole is legendary producer Johnny K's right hand man, and has worked with Johnny K on such projects as 3 Doors Down, Disturbed, SOiL, Drowning Pool, Machine head, and Earshot to name a few.

Shortly after the completion of the 3-song demo, Tim King and his longtime friend Rob Such (Twelfth Gate, Chicago Powerfest) decided to sign the band as one of the first artists on their newly founded label; Mortal Music. After signing the deal, the guys in Lock 13 were sent to ‘Bieler Bros Studios’ in Pompano Beach, FL to record their debut album “Inner Enemy.” The album was mixed by renowned producer Ulrich Wild (Pantera, White Zombie, Deftones, Seether).

“Inner Enemy” can now be purchased at Itunes, amazon.com, bestbuy.com, and other online retailers
