Verbal Revival :: Chief and TheDoomsdayDevice Calls In Bernichus For ‘Old Time Religion’

I’ve been hard at work on A Memoir Called Noir for a long time.  I’ve probably been working on Old Time Religion for a good 16 months or so.  I knew from the moment this song started to take shape, however, that I wanted Bernichus on the track.  His vocal timbre, wit and delivery, in my opinion, were a perfect match for closing out the track.  Recently, Bernichus laced me with his recorded verse (shout out to Chris Boasso for the engineering assist) and I liked it so much that I decided to leak the track prior to the upcoming release of the full length album (stay tuned for details on that).  If you dig the track, give it a like, share or comment, and hopefully this album lives up to expectations… I’m very happy with it, and ready to share it.

Preemptive Strike :: Chief And TheDoomsdayDevice Releases Lead Singles From ‘A Memoir Called Noir’

a3161276551_10

One of the purest senses of joy I experience is releasing new art into the world.  It’s been since late 2015 that I released any music, one of the longest gaps in my music making career.  I spent 2016 recovering from a wave of personal setbacks, and 2017 was focused on getting momentum going in my film career.  During both of those years, however, I never stopped writing, and as Fall of 2017 approached, I was beginning to form my upcoming release : A Memoir Called Noir.

Recording has gone smoothly, and I am now in the process of mixing songs while I wait for a handful of guest verses to arrive.  In the meantime, I thought I would begin the promotional rollout, hence the release of the lead singles : Kickstart, a song about personal responsibility in the light of an ever-changing world; and Fifth Estate Amendment, a song about learning to be a wise risk-taker.  These are extremely simplified explanations, but hopefully, you will be able to make your own connections to the material.  Expect A Memoir Called Noir no later than March, hopefully, and then be on the lookout for the instrumental album also to be released in 2018, This Town Has Turned To Dust.
