About this album

The band’s debut album, Adrenaline, was recorded at Bad Animals Studio in Seattle, Washington and released on October 3, 1995. It was produced by Deftones and Terry Date, who would go on to produce the band’s next three albums. While they were initially unsuccessful, extensive touring, word-of-mouth and Internet promotion built the band a dedicated fanbase, as well as helping Adrenaline to sell over 220,000 copies without the singles “7 Words” and “Bored” (as well as their music videos) receiving any airplay. The band contributed the non-album track “Teething” to the soundtrack for the 1996 film The Crow: City of Angels and are also seen performing the song live during one of the film’s scenes. The track “Engine No. 9” has since been covered by Korn and Suicide Silence, and appeared in the film Law Abiding Citizen.

The album spent 21 weeks on the Billboard Heatseekers chart reaching a peak position of 23. When asked what he attributed the album’s success to, Cheng responded, “One word: perseverance. We’ve been together for almost eight years, on the road for two and we do it with honesty and integrity – and the kids can tell.” The album was RIAA certified gold on July 7, 1999 in recognition of 500,000 units sold.

Regarding the recording of the album, Abe Cunningham said, “At the time we did the first record – which I really like and think is good – you can tell the band was really young.
