Comet Control frontman Chad Ross has dropped a knock-out of a psyche, Americana, folk-tinged record entitled Skull Creator which features the talent of Joshua Wells (Destroyer) on drums and keys, Isaiah Mitchell (Earthless, Golden Void, the Black Crowes) on guitar, with Aaron Goldstein on pedal steel. “Wrong Side of the Sky” is the first single and video off of the album which was released July 13 via Atlanta’s Echodelick Records.
“I had it in my head that I was gonna make an acoustic record with the sole purpose of making fun of myself, reflecting on a few of my past wasted lives and just generally taking the singer/songwriter thing out with the trash. The lyrics all made me laugh at one point, but when Josh and Isaiah got involved, things got elevated… as they tend to do with musicians like that.”
Ross has spent many years slugging it out in the Canadian music scene as the singer and guitarist for heavy psych rockers Quest for Fire (Teepee), solo acoustic as Nordic Nomadic (Blue Fog, Teepee), as a member of The Deadly Snakes (In the Red), and as a touring member of Vancouver’s Pink Mountaintops.
