Last week, Facebook decided we were simply too dangerous to leave with a public voice. Brainclaw, God Shaped Void, Independent Free Thinker and David’s personal account were all vaporized, no reason given, no appeal. These are the times we live in. If you think you won’t be touched, you are wrong. Keep your voices and fight back against tyranny wherever possible. We are already on Gab, Parler and remain on Instagram for the time being. We will go where the freedom is, period. When we lose our voices, we lose our ability to fight. If they keep pushing us into a corner, we may have to fight in other ways. That would be terrible. Carry on, friends.
For anyone who still remembers, I just wrote out, formatted and proofed every single lyric for the RIDICULOUSLY overdue new Brainclaw album DECEPTOR.
I HEAVILY reviewed all 12 master audio files for all of the new songs, and have given them the FINAL seal of approval.
I have contacted my distributors.
If the recent passing of Tara and this virus lockdown has shown me anything, it is that it is TIME TO FINALLY SHIT, or get off the pot for good.
My daughter Gwennie is turning five in May, and I have given her five full years of my undivided attention. My older stepsons are turning into men. Time is passing.
This album and electronic music in general have been clawing at my brain for the better part of ten years.
I have watched my favorite media franchises and more sadly and importantly, every single one of my musical heroes be slowly absorbed and destroyed by the current sociopolitical climate. It has infuriated me beyond words.
I have tried my best to ignore it all. FOR TEN YEARS.
NO LONGER. You deserve better. So… if there is anyone left who remembers:
STAY TUNED, CLAWLINGS.
IT IS FINALLY HAPPENING.
…stay tuned, Clawlings.
I never thought I would be sitting here watching the beginning of the end. The majority of Americans appear to have been lulled into a state of apathetic non-action, and now believe everything that is being spoon-fed to them. I stand here in disbelief as my precious rights continue to erode…
The very things Brainclaw strives to illustrate with its songs are happening. I will quote myself: “Take your power back!” The events of 2012 and 2013 can and WILL generate an entire new album, as long as I am still around to compose it. I have no more words to express my disbelief and disappointment.
Please open your eyes and find out the facts. I am always available to speak to if people want straight facts, especially on firearms and their capabilities.
Open plea to the media: It is called a MAGAZINE, not a “clip.” At least get your terms straight, if not your portrayal of the truth.
