Ever wonder what it would be like to see a Bullet of Reason live DJ gig full of house and electro-pop, dub/drumstep massiveness? Even if you’ve already experienced the Machine, you can take it all in again THIS SATURDAY! I’ll be DJing alongside my buddy DJ Kalin Clein at Colonel Mustards in Newmarket (head over to his page and show him some love). So come out and have some food/beverages, and of course… rock out on the dance floor as we pound your eardrums with the wide range of heavy and melodic musical madness! I look forward to seeing and partying with all your sexy faces!
Wow… is this really happening? Am I dreaming? This album is FINALLY released? Believe me, I’m just as shocked as you are.
But even though it feels like a dream, there’s really no going back now is there?
This album has been in the making for about 6 years now (yes, I started it even while I was finishing up my first album “Assault on Your Reckoning”). A lot of the lyrics were compiled over many years and it took me awhile to try to sort it all out to make some sense of it all. Some stuff from my old Platinum Dragon17 days, some stuff from my old DoublEdged days, and of course new material based on life experiences and the ups and downs that took place. It’s been a hell of a roller coaster ride which would really explain why this album was the longest album I’ve ever spent any time on. I think it’s fair to say that I’m extremely happy to have this weight lifted off my shoulders!
Now for those of you who were strapped in to this ride from the get-go, I salute you! And for those of you who just recently joined me on this unforgiving journey, welcome and please keep your hands and legs inside the vehicle at all times… I can’t promise you that it’s always going to be a smooth ride, but I can tell you that it’ll be interesting. Thank you all so very much for being a part of this with me and really being more than just fans to me. I seriously cannot even begin to express how grateful I am to have made such awesome friends along the way and without sounding all sappy, I really do cherish you all! Group hug!!!
It really did feel like this ride would never end… but really, has it ended? This is only the beginning for me and I’m already working on some new material for the next album as well as some other side projects I can’t wait to share with you when I can.
And now, without further a due… Allow me to make it all official.
Breathing The Machine is officially released, and is ready to attack your ear holes!
I’ve gone in and made a 9 minute preview of all the tracks off “Breathing The Machine” so you can get a quick fix before the album drops on September 17, 2013 (never thought you’d see a release date, huh?)
You can pre-order your copy of “Breathing The Machine” at the following links:
It took a lot of courage to go in and cover this tune, but I finally did it… and I’m happy to say that I’m proud of it! It’s a FREE download so why don’t you go and grab yourself a copy of it and jam it right into your ear holes?!
And here’s some album news……..
It’s done… ‘Breathing the Machine’ is finished… ready to be put to CDs and start delivering it to YOU! I will be revealing the album artwork sometime this week on my Facebook Page as well as the full tracklist, and then updating it here later.
I’m just a little excited…… and relieved (but mostly excited)!
If you’ve been following me on Facebook and Twitter you would have seen that I was looking at YOU to be a part of “Slay to Survive”…. AND NOW YOU CAN! All the instructions are included in this Zip file (see below) on how you can be a part of the upcoming album “Breathing the Machine”.
Get your lungs ready and start chanting!!!!
SEND ONLY THE VOX TRACK WITHOUT THE BACKGROUND MUSIC!
THE DEADLINE TO SUBMIT YOUR VOX TRACK IS JULY 26, 2013
TODAY “Slay to Survive” will be built from scratch and brought back to life with the help from a few of my old bandmates of DoublEdged. I hope to get a camera up and running so you can get a glimpse of what we’re working on and the shenanigans that would most definitely take place today.
If all goes as planned, I’ll start a broadcast around 1pm (EST) and have it go for as long as I see fit.
Are you ready? Cause I am!
P.S. Since Facebook has gone in and made it even more difficult for musicians to interact with their fans, here’s how you can get all the Bullet of Reason news!
For those remixers out there and people who wish to cover my track “Unfair”, I’ve got some good news for you! I’m giving you the stems so you can go ahead and slice away at those files and remix it into your own creation! I look forward to seeing and hearing what kind of madness you guys create!
Just released my new track “Buildup (Teardown)” over on my SoundCloud page. Why don’t you head on over there (or just click on the SoundCloud widget here on my page) and rock out! It’s what all the cool kids are doing!
It’s done and it’s ready for your downloading and listening pleasure! This is really the first time I’ve ever actually done a cover on my own and I gotta say that it was quite fun and challenging. So because you’re all awesome and got my Facebook Page to 100+ Likes, I’m going to deliver what I promised.
Also, don’t forget that I’m doing a pretty sweet charity event. I’ll be gaming for 24 hours for the SickKids Hospital here in Toronto. All the proceeds raised go to the hospital for the kids. You can find all the details on our Extra-Life event page and even join us on Facebook for all the updates on our LIVE 24 Hour broadcast of the entire event.
