Haligonian hard rockers Dali Van Gogh are back at it after five months away from the stage with the rippin' new single “Get Away”.
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
“Five months is a long time!” laughed guitarist and Dali Van Gogh founder Isaac Kent. “We've all had serious cabin fever getting this album together, and with the launch of the single, we're finally starting to see the finish line!”
Dali Van Gogh's new single, “Get Away”, is Celtic inspired piece of modern arena rock, the first single from the band's forthcoming album: Under Her Spell. With a driving drum line, and lyrics inspired by classic car chase films, the song gets your heart pumping from the first note and never lets up.
“I'm a huge fan of car chases in movies,” said John Scotto, DVG vocalist and lyricist for the song. “Especially like the ones on the movie Ronin with Robert De Niro, so I had a lot of fun working on this one. The song's got a fun flow and style that makes it not just enjoyable to perform but listen to as well.“
Dali Van Gogh's latest edition: Rachelle Moreau on keyboards and backing vocals.
Featuring 12 new songs by the band, Under Her Spell is the follow up to Dali Van Gogh's 2017 album From Ashes, which debuted at #1 on on the CKDU charts in Halifax, and led the band to victory in the Garrison Brewing Battle of the Bash, winning an opening slot for the Glorious Sons at the Cunard Centre.
The record will be released in a special event at Garrison Brewing on March 29th, presented by Q104 FM, with a special guest performance by The Royal Volts (www.theroyalvolts.ca) to kick off the night.
Described as “a captivating portrait of soulful rock music, with all the bite and grit you'd expect from any group of musicians who grew up during the 90s grunge movement,” the new record marks the debut of keyboardist and vocalist Rachelle Moreau in the band.
“Rachelle brings a whole new dimension to [Dali Van Gogh],” said Isaac on his long time friend and musical associate, “not just in her vocal and keyboard abilities but in her attitude. She's worked incredibly hard getting up to speed on the new songs, and has brought new life in to some pieces of music that we've already been jamming, privately or on stage, for years! She's a vocal powerhouse that compliments [John] Scotto perfectly. We're all very excited to get her out on stage with us in March.”
While not prominently featured on Get Away, Rachelle is expected to impact the entire album, which now includes a duet between she and John Scotto
"The duet went through a few different versions. I wasn't really satisfied with what I had come up with as a soloist song. I knew I was on the right track but it was missing something. I had briefly heard Rachelle singing a few days before hand and I decided that what this song needed was a counterweight so to speak. Once I decided to write it as a duet the work and words came swiftly. And couple of days later when Rachelle and I laid down the vocals for it I knew I'd made the right decision. She knocked it out of the park and I feel like we created something really special here. "
“It's been a blast reconnecting with Isaac and recording with the guys,” said Rachelle on joining the already well established band. “I grew up on Queen, Styx, and all the power rock acts of the 1980s, but I haven't had a chance to utilize my voice that way in years. Getting to push myself again and really sing has already been incredible, and we haven't even hit the stage yet!”
The album also marks the debut of Dali Van Gogh's new drumming phenom Johnny Moore. When asked for comment Johnny only had this to say: “My name is Johnny Moore, and this is my favourite band on the citadel.”
