?'Gazing In The Dark': the black holes of life. Crushing, dense and self-indulgent moments in a seemingly indifferent universe. Recognition and memory of the beauty in painful lessons. The opportunity for regression, stagnancy or evolution. Seeing yourself and the world and being present in your birth.
Bands that gave birth to my musical DNA are Helmet, The Jesus Lizard, Unsane, Godflesh, Tool and Bad Brains. Sometimes I draw musical inspiration from the most minuscule things and try to see how much I can build around that tiny moment as I experienced it. The cadence of someone in heels walking in a hallway... windshield wiper blades... I'm a welder at a shipyard and I have straight stolen rhythms from the machines I hear at work."
Copperhead is the post-hardcore meets noise rock meets black sacred ancestral technology "band" project by Richmond, VA-based multi-instrumentalist, David Leonard. Absolute fury.
'Gazing In The Dark' will be out September 6, 2019 on cassette and digital edition via PTP.
