Davey Suicide Premieres New Song “Caught In The Fire”

Davey Suicide has premiered a new song titled “Caught In The Fire.” You can check that out below:

Suicide commented:

“This was the first time in 11 years that I’ve tracked vocals with a producer in their studio. All of our previous efforts, were recorded DIY style at my house and our producer would get the recorded tracks and edit them in post. This experience pushed me to a new level vocally and I got to lose myself in the performance. I lived through every lyric and Erik [Ron] was fantastic at capturing the character in crucial moments. Writing with him was a moving experience and I can see ‘Caught in the Fire’ becoming our most popular song to date!”

Davey Suicide Premieres “Rock Aint Dead” Music Video

Davey Suicide has premiered a new video for his new song “Rock Aint Dead.” This is the title track of his new album, which will be released on January 24.

Davey commented:

“We’re ecstatic to unveil our most Epic video to date, “ROCK AINT DEAD!!!!”

In a not so distant future, all aspects of human existence are being controlled. Where ‘silence is a virtue’ and most freedoms like artistic expression are forbidden in a world of fabricated reality.

Those in power have been determined that Rock Music had no redeemable qualities and is corrupting to the culture, and is no longer an acceptable form of music or entertainment.

In the year 2039 in Los Angeles, Rock music is no more than delusional memories of a sadistic past of the unevolved. Rock music and other antisocial expressions are forbidden in this new perfectly sterile society. All creative expressions has been deemed socially toxic and poisons human uniformity. The only way for anyone to be expressive or to experience any form of creativity is through the illegal use of Drug Enhanced Virtual Reality (DEVR). This underground DEVR experience is only obtained by those who seek it on the streets of back alleys hidden in the shadows. For those wanting to participate in this type of DEVR experience, there is this warning.

‘This type of music is forbidden and any partaking in it is punishable by death. Proceed at your own risk’

Would like to proceed with your experience?”
