NEW SONG: "Way Way Back"


i wrote ‘way way back’ with sean
in a basement in los angeles.
i had the first line. he had the hook. 
the rest came REAL fast. lyrics too.
i've never written a song this good that fast.
i recorded the bulk of it with adam & amir
last summer. at a studio in the village,
on the top floor of an old building
with a death-trap elevator
and janky air conditioning.
i finished it with butch
back out in LA, by the beach,
just as the year was ending.
john KILLED the mixes
and then jade shot the video
in three hours
@ a supermarket in the valley.
it’s magical, my job.
collaborating with friends.
human collision at its finest.
psyched for you to finally hear it.

Pyromattia E.P. - OUT NOW
pyromattia.jpg

if you've been paying attention to my posts this week you’ve probably figured out that i LOVE the band Def Leppard. (and i like leg day @ the gym)

now, i love A LOT of music… but def leppard is one of the few bands that live in rarified air for me. top tier greatness. so aaron tap (he is a HUGE DL fan too) and i decided that we would… yep, you guessed it:

RECORD AN ENTIRE E.P. OF DEF LEPPARD SONGS!! 
CAN I GET A 'HELLS YES'!!!

the E.P. is called “Pyromattia” (get it?!) and it is out RIGHT NOW!
so take it for a spin. live with it. love it. it’s my crazy-ass metal super nerd fan gift to you.

Stream + download

ps- it sounds REALLY great on headphones. (and you’ll feel invincible with them on… ha!) and stay tuned for a whole lot more info coming VERY VERY VERY SOONISH about my “you know what” that you have been waiting for since my last “you know what” (for those not good at hints, i’m talking about my new album).

bill murray video out NOW

as most of you know, i have a song on the new record called “bill murray.”  i wrote it about a fictional 100 day hang with the man himself. kind of like a dude-version of thelma and louise, but without the dying. anyway. it’s the best song i’ve ever written and it’s the first song i’ve ever had a real clear vision for a video for. so i recruited my friends and we shot it, guerilla-style. no big budget. and it turned out SUPER cool. it’s strange and surreal and funny and sad, all at the same time. anyway, i’m super proud of it and it’s out TODAY! if you can, clear out a few minutes, put your headphones on and dig in.
