In celebration of next week’s release of Walking Underwater Pt. 2, the brand new full-length record from dark rock project JOHNNY WORE BLACK, Bloody-Disgusting.com is streaming the new track “Fallen Angel”, as well as hosting a never-before-read blog post detailing JWB frontman Jay’s professional stuntman-by-day career and how it relates to his music.
Pulling inspiration from his work on the silver screen (having worked as a stuntman in films like Les Miserables, The Dark Knight Rises, Fast and Furious 6 and most recently, Fury with Brad Pitt), JOHNNY WORE BLACK ‘the artist’ has created his own brand of dark, atmospheric musical intrigue.
As mentioned above, JOHNNY WORE BLACK features frontman / mainstream film and television stuntman-by-day Jay and guest musician / co-writer Dave Ellefson (Megadeth). Walking Underwater Pt. 2 hits stores on November 26, 2014 via Dead Cherry. The album is mixed by Grammy-award winning producer David Bottrill (Tool, Stone Sour). Walking Underwater Pt. 2 will be available for ordering next week.
As mentioned above, Walking Underwater Pt. 2 features the one and only Dave Ellefson of “Big 4” heavy metal titans Megadeth, as well as a few additional guest appearances from Croatian singer Sara Renar, and renowned soul singer Loretta Heywood. Both esteemed artists bring a new level of undeniable credibility and brooding, haunting sounds that Jay bases JOHNNY WORE BLACK on.
Walking Underwater Pt. 1 was released earlier this year and received excellent reviews. PureGrainAudio.com’s Chris Gonda calls the album an “intensely passionate collection of songs”, while Screamer Magazine stated, “If you wish to purchase an album that doesn’t conform, yet provides a top quality set of textures and shades, then prepare yourself to be quietly impressed.”
This follows the praise of previously released singles ‘All The Rage’ (2011), ‘Up In Flames’ (2012), ‘Noise’ (2012) and ‘Gift of Desperation’ (2013). September 2014 marked the release of the new JOHNNY WORE BLACK single ‘A Cut Above’.
