With the passing of Jonny Hetherington’s (vocals) father, Art Of Dying became the most inspirational band to play this year’s Aftershock Festival in Sacramento, CA.
Ahh, Art Of Dying. What can I say? I have been a big fan of the band even before their self-titled release in 2006 when very few people had heard of them. Such deeply meaningful and radio friendly tracks as “Get Through This,” “You Don’t Know Me,” “Inside It’s Raining” and “Completely,” were burned into my memory, programmed into my new artist lexicon, and imprinted on my musical compass as what good alternative rock should be.
Check out the premiere of New Medicine’s music video for “Resolve To Fight” down below. New Medicine are gearing up to hit the road this Fall with Adelitas Way, Art Of Dying and Emphatic! Check out the date listings below.
Jonny Hetherington, lead singer of the modern rock band Art Of Dying, recently spoke to me by phone about the band’s newest effort, Vices And Virtues. This is one of those albums that I dig top to bottom. If somebody told me they had $.99 cents and wanted just one song off the disc, I’d have a hard time making the choice. This is really a rock-solid album and not a compilation of singles that will fade away into oblivion within a few weeks.
