LAS VEGAS, NV - CRASHING WAYWARD RELEASE "DISCO KILLS". Sonically there is something different here, whether it provokes or invokes an emotion, a beat, an attitude, "Disco Kills" delivers from beginning to end. The vocals arouse the groove calls and are all timely matched with the sex appeal of the band. Add their storytelling video and in its completion "Disco Kills" leads to some cool rock n roll. "Disco Kills" has been produced to create a message in a way that only true rock can. A solid vibe, and a direct correlating throb that grinds this single and delivers. A single written to make you want to turn it up loud and play it on repeat.
David Harris: '“Disco Kills” was one of those songs that came really quickly once I started writing the music for it. I always loved those old-school huge-sounding Black Sabbath/Mountain/Aerosmith/Rolling Stones riffs & I always want to write something paying homage to those classic riffs/ songs. Once Pete put his lyric on it I really felt we had something special happening. When we worked it up as a band it felt like a train about to run off the tracks & which made me very happy."'
Peter Summit: '"Disco Kills" was lyrically written as a metaphor about the politicians/big business who abuse their platform. Disco being the metaphor. It speaks in sequence to the effect that Disco Music had on Rock in the late 70s, but its subject is a politician/big business who is enjoying the party. How about:
It’s really a modern-day Marie Antoinette “Let them eat cake” story that takes on a duel meaning open for interpretation."
Stacey Blades: "I remember the first time I heard the riff for "Disco Kills" Dave had demoed it up and sent it to us it was very very unique sounding and had this really cool sonic vibe to it! When we worked it up as a band and everybody put their swagger on It, I knew the song was going to be massive.
When we tracked it with producer Mike Gillies and heard the final mix I knew we had something really special!"
Carl Raether: When I first heard these riffs that Dave sent over for what would be become “Disco Kills,” I got really excited. As Pete refined his lyrics and as Mike Gillies (Producer) helped us mold the song into how we play it now, it’s probably one of my favorite songs we’ve worked on over the last year.
Working with Vicente Cordero at Industrialism Films was a blast! I’ve been really lucky to be friends with Vicente for about 12 years now and just been waiting forever for the right opportunity to film something with him. Watching his growth as a director as a friend and artistically speaking has been so exciting, I’m really proud of him and I’m so glad I got a chance to get to work with Vicente on a video shoot for my band."
Shon McKee: "When Stacey initially talked to me about joining the band the first demo he sent me to check out was "Disco Kills". One listen was all it took for me to be all in on the band."
