Job for a Cowboy’s New Music

The band released “The Agony Seeping Storm” this past summer, but they also recently released another single, “The Forever Rot.” Vocalist Johnny Davy spoke about the new album Moon Healer to Brooklyn Vegan.

“The evolution of our sound has become a big part of the band. As we mature as musicians, our tastes and interests naturally expand. With age comes more experience and ideas that we wouldn’t have considered in our earlier years.”

He continued, “I envision this as a death metal album born from the mystical confines of an alchemist’s laboratory. The music acts as potent potions, inducing hallucinogenic journeys that unlock the secrets of the universe.”

He added, “The concepts in the album follow someone attempting to explore a different human existence. They considered themselves a pseudo-alchemist, they obsessed over esoteric methods to access altered states of consciousness through various pathways, including a focus on the pineal gland, a small endocrine gland within the center of the brain is believed to potentially play a role in entheogenic experiences. They cooked mind-altering consumables. But contrary to what others viewed as their descent into delusion, they were under the belief that they were unlocking the gateway to some form of profound enlightenment.”

Davy also addressed the band’s prolonged hiatus, “I had to take a step back in the band for family. It was the catalyst that eventually created a fork in the road for all of us. We all drifted into our separate paths. Fatherhood, additional music projects, academic degrees, and careers outside the band took priority and life’s focus.”

He finished, “…As most bands have at one point or another found themselves in the situation of having to meet strict deadlines, this was not the case for Moon Healer. We started laying the groundwork for this album in 2018. Being as busy as we were in life, we managed to slowly chip away. This slow pace gave us significantly more time to analyze and dissect what we were doing, which in turn helped make a better album.”
