California wildfire benefit


Make sure to check out Groupees' all-new California Wildfire Benefit Bundle that was launched today. With more than a dozen releases by a wide variety of artists and labels, plus Markosia Enterprises comics, this campaign is a benefit to California wildfire victims.

My contribution is a two-track single revisiting the 2016 Gladiatori dell'Apocalisse 12" EP, finalizing and remixing one outtake, with Acid Washed's own Andrew Claristidge providing a remix of The Ravagers. Both tracks are previously unreleased and exclusive to this benefit.

The bundle is available for a minimum of $1 with 100% of all sales being donated to the United Way's Southern California Disaster Relief Fund, who will support low-income households whose lives have been affected by the current wildfires in Southern California. Please donate here.

EDIT: The Damn Fine Network were kind enough to give both the single and the Groupees benefit campaign a shout-out on the latest episode of the Damn Fine Cast. You can stream it on SoundCloud (below), Stitcher, Libsyn, and iTunes. Check it out.

The Damn Fine Cast!

Many thanks to Tony Giles for including me and Jesse Breckon-ThomasMichael in the 111th episode of the Damn Fine Cast!

The episode, which leans on the horror side of things, also includes tracks by maestro John Carpenter (taken from the recent 2018 Halloween), a taste from Colin Stetson's Hereditary score, and two tracks from the Blair Brothers' work for the Netflix horror/thriller Hold the Dark!

Italian composer Bruno Nicolai and the iconic Jerry Goldsmith wraps up the 53-minute episode with the former's Morricone-esque tunage for Westworld and the latter's work for the 1976 sci-fi classic Logan's Run - quite fine company indeed!

Streaming now on iTunes, Libsyn, and Stitcher, you can also check it out on DFN's official SoundCloud below:

Michael



It's October 1st, Halloween's around the corner, and I couldn't be more excited to release a surprise teaser taste from my ongoing collaboration with Australian composer Jesse Breckon-Thomas!

The all-new track, titled Michael, is a musical nod to both John Carpenter's iconic title track opening the 1978 classic Halloween, as well as the original boogeyman Michael Myers himself. It's a hard-hitting instrumental that blends classic retro-sounding horror synths with more modern influences, delivering an explosive three-minute effort that's dark and uncompromising.

The collaboration, which began late summer of 2018, has me and Jesse revisiting and reworking demos I created back in 2015 for a U.S. documentary on John Carpenter that never got off the ground. The sessions are in progress and the expected release of the TBA-titled effort on SelectaVision is early 2019. Stay tuned!

Buy and stream Michael via Bandcamp here, and check out the Halloween opening titles-esque video on YouTube and Facebook.
