New Noise Magazine is pleased to be bringing forth “Bare Shores Bleed” by Walking Bombs & Gridfailure. This group is comprised of two solo acts. The tune is an eerie imagining of the tone of the end of the world. The video captures the bizarre world in a different light. Take a view below, and be prepared for the demonic earth shattering record, Suicide By Citizenship, out on April 26th via Nefarious Industries.
Morgan Y. Evans of Walking Bombs: “Dave mainly wrote this, but I was really stoked Elizabeth and I sang on it together as the environment is important to both of us. She got me taking care of my health again and has been vegetarian for fifteen years. I also love the nature of where we live in the Catskill Mountains of Upstate New York and so hate that the world is threatened by the careless march of humanity. Also, shout-out to Jay for spending extra time on mixing this one as there was so much going on; it could have turned out a lot worse.”
Dave Brenner of Gridfailure “Our planet is in peril. We see some of the most devastating ecological disasters happening right in front of our eyes, we watch species go extinct daily, we clear millions of acres of woodlands yearly, and each of us throws thousands of pounds of plastic into the planet each year. We have an administration who hires rapists of the EPA to run it, and legions of ‘Flat Earthers’ and ‘coal rollers’ simply defying science and common sense. Political affiliations aside, we all need air and water. Our planet is the highest priority to all of us, and it saddens me when I see so much abuse of it every day.
The middle section of the track was performed by Morgan on bass, Jay on drums, and myself on guitar, after which I designed an entire track around that segment, using field recordings, noise, harsh vocals, harmonica, and more. My ally Brett Netson (Built To Spill, Caustic Resin, Snakes) supplied some of his extra distorted floodplain guitar riffage, regular/live Gridfailure contributor Benjamin Levitt (Megalophobe) supplied some effects-soaked accordion, then Morgan and Lizzie bridged some great, emotional vocal melodies contrasting with the song’s caustic elements, resulting in an organic, swirling, foggy tune.”
From their impending fully collaborative musical experiment, Suicide By Citizenship, New York solo outfits Walking Bombs and Gridfailure present a new video for the emotive eco-collapse movement, “Bare Shores Bleed.”
Suicide By Citizenship was conceived by WALKING BOMBS’ Morgan Y. Evans and GRIDFAILURE’s David Brenner who created the album with producer Jay Andersen (Surmiser). In addition to Mike Score, guest contributions from Thomas Andrew Doyle (Tad, Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth), Laura Pleasants (Kylesa, The Discussion), Brett Netson (Built To Spill, Snakes), Elizabeth Le Fey (Globelamp), BJ Allen (Full Scale Riot), Benjamin Levitt (Megalophobe), and more are featured throughout the album, which was recorded and mastered by Andersen, who also plays on the entire album, with additional recording by Brenner who created the cover art.
