Michael Sweet - I'm Not Your Suicide - promo cover pic - 2014

MICHAEL SWEET – The legendary Michael Sweet has released (March 4th – Big 3 Records) a grand new music video, I’m Not Your Suicide, which is also the title track of his forthcoming solo album. I’m Not Your Suicide carries a positive message to young people: that choosing suicide from being abused or bullied is not the answer and help is available to those being tormented.

Child abuse in all its forms must be addressed and Michael Sweet has succeeded in raising the awareness to this troubling social crisis, through his song and music video. A suicide crisis hotline number is also shown at the end of this music video: 1-800-4-A-CHILD.

I love this song, both for its incredibly positive message to young people and for its melodic and inspiring music. A brilliantly beautiful song is I’m Not Your Suicide. The vocals of Michael Sweet are filled with intense and undeniable emotion. Amazingly well done. Listen and watch for yourself, below:

MEMBERS OF TOMAHAWK, EINSTÜRZENDE NEUBATEN AND THE SILVER JEWS CREATE INSTRUMENTAL TRIO

_____________________________

Dec. 9, 2013, San Francisco -  The Unsemble, a new trio from members of Tomahawk, Einstürzende Neubaten and the Silver Jews, issue their self-titled debut album on March 3 via Ipecac Recordings.

“We wanted to work on something that was typically not what we do,” Denison, explained in a 2012 interview with Rolling Stone. “Something that’s not so rock and riff-based and overdriven in that way.”

The Unsemble, a 15-song collection recorded in Denison’s adopted hometown of Nashville, meets the legendary Jesus Lizard guitar player’s hopes of a more organic feel with the band effortlessly volleying between careful compositions and improvisation. The result is an album that is experimental, clever and inclusive of numerous subgenres and cultures.

The Unsemble Track Listing:

1.    Krishna

2.    Circles

3.    Improv

4.    Act 3

5.    Chaingang

6.    Neon

7.    Improv 2

8.    Shadows

9.    Improv 3

10. Waves

11. Improv 4

12. Circles Revisited

13. Improv 5

14. Cyclone

15. Voices
