Feels like I'm repeating myself by saying sorry, but I am. I usually only go on the computer once every week, in an effort to cut back the amount of time I spend in front of the screen. I'm not going to make excuses, as it's bound to keep happening in the near future. I have recently posted a lot of new art, so I hope everyone enjoys it. Feel free to leave comments, suggestions, or questions. I can't guarantee a quick answer, but you will get one.
This month's featured artist, The Color Morale. Less than 18 months after dropping their 3rd album, they produce the amazing work that is Hold On Pain Ends (an acronym for HOPE). I know some bands get a little preachy with their messages, but these guys are different. They walk the walk, and have the talent to back everything they say.
If you're not convinced, go see a live performance. No not a video on Youtube, go buy a ticket to a concert and watch. Garrett Rapp, the lead singer, is amazing. He's the kind of guy I'd want to spill my guts out to because I know he's actually listen. Some people just space out, and sad to say but I'm one of them.
Their earlier work is different than their current efforts. Not in a bad way, but it's different lyrically. Know Hope and HOPE are continuations of a singular theme. The lyrics speak for themselves
"Leave a mark upon the world, not across your arms, a mark upon the world too beautiful for scars..." from Scar Issue
"Come to me with anything that you'll ever need. Come to me when you're rebuilding. Sometimes it's good to build up walls, not to keep anyone out.But to see who cares enough to knock them down..." from Learned Behavior
Stay devious, and enjoy the fall season while you can. Or if you're not in the northern hemisphere, enjoy spring! Or if you're on the moon, enjoy the lack of gravity and oxygen!
