Alekhine’s Gun Premiere New Song “Ngepar Chiwa”

Alekhine’s Gun, the band featuring “Orange Is The New Black” actress Jessica Pimentel, have premiered a new song titled “Ngepar Chiwa.” This track will appear on the group’s upcoming EP “Year Of The Lazerus.”

The group told Revolver the following:

“Death is the one common denominator that pervades all existence. As most of us get bogged down with all the worldly goals, desires and fears of human life, how often do we sit and contemplate our own Death? In Tibetan Buddhism we focus, meditate on and practice our own death on a daily basis. Nothing in this world is yours. Even your own body will betray you. At the moment of death you will lose everything. This moment can come at any time. Constantly reminding yourself of your impermanence causes a radical shift in one’s mind stream freeing you from attachments, hatred, greed and fear which cause daily suffering and helps you reevaluate what is truly important. By becoming friends with death we are able to live a more perfect life. By eliminating the fear of the unknown we can have a peaceful death, which not only benefits ourselves by helping us to easily reach our next plane of existence properly but helps ease the minds and suffering that we cause by our departure from those who love us.”

Alekhine’s Gun Premiere New Song “21”

Alekhine’s Gun, the band featuring “Orange Is The New Black” actress Jessica Pimentel, have premiered a new song titled “21.” This track will appear on the group’s upcoming EP “Year Of The Lazerus.” Pimentel commented:

“Inspired by the traditional Tibetan Buddhist prayer ‘Praises To The Twenty-One Taras,’ ’21’ is a musical offering and an act of paying homage to the primordial power within by delving deeply into calling upon the forces of fierce compassion and the wrathful aspect of love and wisdom needed in times of fear and uncertainty in order to seek refuge and gain enlightenment. Reaching beyond time and space, the bond between us and the true nature of reality is unbreakable, unstoppable and eternal.”
