Josey Scott (ex-Saliva) has announced a new project called Shade Violent. The band are currently in the process of writing their debut album.
Scott said the following about the project during an appearance on That Fuzzing Rock Show:
“It’s a collection of some friends of mine here where I live in Oklahoma. And my stepson Dylan is my rhythm guitar player. And we’re just in the process of writing the record right now. And we’re just now getting in the studio and starting to figure some things out. We’ve done a couple of shows, a couple of start-up shows… But, yeah, we’re just getting it together and sort of sussing things out.”
“My mission is to get back to that kid in Memphis. One of my favorite producers, Malcolm Springer, in Nashville, said, ‘Where’s that kid that used to run around with a green notebook full of lyrics under his arm and the backpack and the black blazer? Where’s that kid at?’ And that’s exactly where I’m trying to find my way back to that kid. I’m trying to find a way back to that first love, why I fell in love with music in the first place and why I think music is so beautiful and so moving.”
“I’m working with ScatteredBrains, a producer out of Nashville. And he told me, he said, ‘This is an opportunity for you to tell your story. That’s what this is about. At 50, when you’ve gone through your first arc of a musical career. You’ve done some wonderful things, and you’ve been through some horrible things.’ And he said, ‘It’s time for you to tell your story.’ And I think that’s… My mission is to get back to why I fell in love with music in the first place and to tell my story and to join those two hands together.”
He continued when asked about release plans:
“We’re just taking it fast and loose. We’re not really putting a time limit on it. I would like to get it out over the next three to six months. I’m definitely planning on dropping a single in the next three to four months, definitely. I just want to pay more attention to the music and make sure that everything is right and perfect this time, because it’s a privilege and an honor to kind of finally be in the driver’s seat and be the captain of my own soul and not have to answer to the whims of others. Which I’m badmouthing that in any kind of way. I just want a chance, like I said, to tell my story.”
He also added the following about live shows:
“We’ve been playing a couple of start-up shows, just getting all the back catalog tight. We’re possibly gonna do… I’d like to do maybe a BLACKBONE song. I’d like to do some SALIVA songs that I was privileged enough to write with the guys. And then I wanna play the new stuff as well. Sort of have a then-to-now sort of thing.”
