Emerging from the depths of personal struggles and musical evolution, Alison Krebs, also known as Rok Ali, leads the charge with her formidable hard rock collective, Rok Ali and The Addiction, as they announce the release of their latest single, Pulse. It’s a loud, proud fusion: hard rock’s polished, intricate style finds common ground with the gritty, intense thrall of grunge and metal.

Rock music had Alison under its spell, but her love affair with its raw energy was constantly threatened by the dark shadow of addiction. However, emerging from the darkness, she has found a renewed sense of purpose and passion – her addiction now lies solely in music.

At the core of Rok Ali and The Addiction are extraordinary musicians who bring their own unique talents to the table. Guitar virtuoso Chris Nix, whose early years saw him jamming with legends from James Brown’s band, brings a wealth of experience from his collaborations with names like Jonathan Davis of Korn and Billy Ray Cyrus. As Eddie Money’s go-to bassist for years, Lee Beverly now anchors the band’s sound with a strong, seasoned hand. With credits that span artists like Daughtry and Tonic, Kevin Murphy’s propulsive drumming injects a welcome urgency into their sound.

Imagine the perfect storm of style and edge, where every element combines to forge a sound that’s as multifaceted as it is intriguing – that’s what happens when these two worlds collide. Their self-titled debut album in 2022 introduced audiences to their intense sonic landscape, and this year, they’ve continued to captivate with singles like You Want and The Charming Snake, leading up to the release of ‘Pulse’.

Pulse itself is a brooding grunge rock anthem that channels the raw energy of iconic bands like Nine Inch Nails and Soundgarden. A dark, enchanting melody unfolds as deep guitar notes hum like a presence, pounding drums emphasize the danger, and Alison’s bewitching voice weaves a spell that lures listeners into the unknown.

Imagine getting an invite to unravel a labyrinth of sounds – that’s what Alison’s Pulse embodies, blending different genres in a melodic odyssey that’ll leave you wanting more. Rok Ali and The Addiction’s track stands as a thunderous declaration of the band’s hallmark sound – an infectious blend of captivating hooks and captivating atmosphere that grips listeners from the get-go.
