In the words of David Ellefson himself:
“Johnny Wore Black has a very unique sound that I like and as an artist creating a unique sound is one of the hardest things to do, you either have it or you don’t and to me Johnny Wore Black definitely has it.”
The singles are both taken from current Johnny Wore Black album ‘Walking Underwater Part 2’. Available now, it followed debut LP ‘Walking Underwater Part 1’ as a double whammy of albums released in 2014 to excellent reviews. ‘Part 2’ sees Johnny Wore Black continue to evolve his unique energy and song writing style, with an intense, passionate lyrical style.
Stellar pair of rock tracks set to be unleashed on June 15th
The latest fruit of this labour is the double A side single ‘Firefly’/’Comfy Slippers’, which will be independently released on June 15th. You can see the stunning animated video for ‘Firefly’ below, with sketchy, monochrome visuals augmenting a classy song about facing your own personal demons head on and the inherent challenges therein.
On hearing the singles and the album as a whole it should come as no surprise that this acerbic brand of indie-rock already has fans among music’s top table. Notable followers of Jonny Wore Black include Tim Simenon (Bomb The Bass), Danny Bigfoot (Shanks and Bigfoot), Loretta Heywood (Winter in July), David Ellefson (Megadeth), Simon Hutchby (Earthtone 9) and more.
