One man studio artist and Nuclear Oath bassist Nate Bohnet is about to release his new album Therapeutic Destruction on February 16th. From the album, the band released the music video for the song “Suicidal Illusions.” This is Bohnet’s debut solo album that was all recorded, mixed and mastered with his producer touch at his Medicine Hat, Alberta based Octave Studios. This is music coming straight from the heart, with deep and painful tracks. Bohnet lost both of his parents as a young child which has inspired what he writes about in his music.
Bohnet commented, “This album is centred around the concept that music is therapy. We all go through times in our lives where nothing seems to make sense, everything is on the edge, and you don’t know what will happen next. We have all loved, laughed, lost, and experienced tremendous grief and joy in our time alive. ‘Therapeutic Destruction’ means harnessing all the negative energy that comes into your life, and unleashing it in music that some might consider destructive. I felt that the title fits the main idea of the album; using music as a way of therapy and harnessing it in such a way as to allow myself to deal with aspects of my life, and if one song reaches you and connects with you; it has done its job. The overarching message is that regardless of all these low points in our lives, all we have to do is push forward and strive. The only thing holding you back is your mind.”
Bohnet added, “We have all been there, whether we have acted on it, or it has just been a passing thought. Regardless though the subject isn’t easy and sometimes the only way to help someone who may be dealing with that situation, is to talk about it and be present.”
