I can safely start this weeks blog by saying I was surprised by the commotion that last week's blog caused. The entire goal was to simply squash any rumors or speculation and get the facts straight from the source. As with all things people took it much differently that I had intended but that's totally ok. 3D In Your Face is still alive and well. The entire reason that we put The Midnight Devils together and have been busting our asses with this band is to answer that call of the wild that seems to be raging inside 24/7. It's that pure desire to play our music in different cities and the joy that it brings us and our fans. We thrive as a live Rock N Roll band. There is no other feeling in the world that can take us to that place. Lost In The Volume is an album full of songs that express that sympathy. Pardon my French but everyone's life is fucked up, everyone has bad shit going on, everyone's job is terrible. There has to be some bright light at the end of that tunnel and for all us out there that light is Rock N Roll music. It's dirty, it's from the heart, it's alive, it's dangerous, and I'm damn proud of it. When the chips are down and you put your trust in the music and the music alone, there's no telling how far you can go. The songs and the lyrics become personal. They speak to you in ways that your friends or family couldn't understand. It's a time and a place and it can get wild as hell.
I know I'm not alone when I describe that feeling. We get that same feeling playing live, seeing peole get off on our tunes. This weekend we head out and leave our lives in Omaha behind. I feel like an apostle for the great word of Rock N Roll, it too can change your life if you let it. The Midnight Devils have become something I am very proud of. We are doing it on our own terms from city to city. It's stripped down to the basic essence of what makes the music great in the first place. When you open yourself up like that it ressonates with audiences no matter what they listen to. For now I need to get some sleep before my 7 AM interview. Just know that even though things are rocky over on this side I still have The Rolling Stones - Exile On Main Street playing as I write this and it makes me feel that somehow everything is going to be ok. Keep writing, keep believing, and keep on moving. The music wont let you down.
