Chris Connelly has premiered “Wait For Amateur”, the first track from his forthcoming new solo album ‘Artificial Madness’, at this location. ‘Artificial Madness’ will see a Nov. 8th release date via Relapse Records.
‘Artificial Madness’, was recorded this past May at Engine studios with producer Sanford Parker. Joining Connelly for the recording was Noah Leger (The Karl Hendricks Trio, The(e) Speaking Canaries, Head of Skulls) on drums, Will Lindsay (Indian, Nachtmystium, Wolves In Throne Room) on bass, and Dallas Thomas (The Swan King, Circle Of Animals, Asschapel) on guitar.
The title ‘Artificial Madness’ is a reference to today’s insane reliance on needless technologies that has turned humans into head-hung, shuffling zombies. Connelly describes the release as “an adrenaline rush of paranoia, drawing on my history with bands like Ministry, Killing Joke, and The Damage Manual while retaining the melodic sense. It’s a statement against the way music has become a flaccid Eagles / Fleetwood Mac nightmare with no one fighting or asking questions anymore. It’s time for a revolution.”
Connelly has also scheduled a record release show for Friday, November 18th at The Hideout in Chicago.Connelly will be joined for this show by the full recording lineup of Leger, Lindsay, Thomas and Parker.
