Rising Dawn is Right Around the Corner!

Ghost 15 was released on January 1st, 2016, and I rested for one month. 

In February I began writing new music and it has become a new album, which I'm super excited to be releasing this August- Rising Dawn!
12 guitar crushing songs with the signature Raygun Girls mix of Goth melodies and Industrial synths.  You can hear some of the sensibilities of this new album in the song "Scream" which was released a couple of months ago.

A new album means new artwork, and new videos!  The first single, "Thoughts And Prayers" will be released this Friday!  And, you hear it here first, it will be available for FREE for one day only!  That's right, this week's #FridayFreebie will be the brand new song "Thoughts And Prayers".
This Friday will also be the release of a video for "Thoughts And Prayers", that director Antony Lane is working on for me (he's also currently working on a zombie movie which looks CRAZY!).

Pre-Orders will begin this Friday, with the release of "Thoughts And Prayers".  When you pre-order the album, you'll get an immediate download of "Thoughts And Prayers".

You can hear some of the song in the Teaser that I've posted on Youtube.

HOW THE WHITE MAN BECAME A BURDEN.


Take up the White Man’s burden—
Send forth the best ye breed—
Go send your sons to exile
To serve your captives' need
To wait in heavy harness
On fluttered folk and wild—
Your new-caught, sullen peoples,
Half devil and half child
Take up the White Man’s burden
In patience to abide
To veil the threat of terror
And check the show of pride;
By open speech and simple
An hundred times made plain
To seek another’s profit
And work another’s gain
Take up the White Man’s burden—
And reap his old reward:
The blame of those ye better
The hate of those ye guard—
The cry of hosts ye humour
(Ah slowly) to the light:
"Why brought ye us from bondage,
“Our loved Egyptian night?”
Take up the White Man’s burden-
Have done with childish days-
The lightly proffered laurel,
The easy, ungrudged praise.
Comes now, to search your manhood
Through all the thankless years,
Cold-edged with dear-bought wisdom,
The judgment of your peers!

OUPblog - Fairies, demons, and ghosts: Shakespeare's fascination with the supernatural [infographic]



Although there was hostility towards witchcraft and sorcery well before the 16th century, it is in this time period where we see religious and legal punishment juxtaposed with the increasing use and enjoyment of special effects in plays to convey magic and the supernatural. Laws and statues against witchcraft were passed, the popularity of witch trials was beginning to rise, yet such an atmosphere did not discourage Shakespeare and other playwrights from incorporating otherworldly elements in...
