ARTISTdirect has teamed up with Wormburner for a "Made-for-TV Movie." That's a song that we're premiering.
The song is featured on Pleasant Living in Planned Communities, out September 30.
Of the song, lead singer Hank Henry says, "The protagonist in this song seems to be a recurring one for me, a dead-end character who's holding out hope for redemption."
Pleasant Living in Planned Communities has cast of desperate characters that includes a downed airman in WWII Europe, a 21st Century soldier returning home from battle, and a transient gay hustler whose youthful looks are weathering with age.
Openly gay frontman Hank Henry elaborates on his lyrical content, saying, "I've only recently realized that the source material for these narratives is probably the fact that I lived many of my formative years in the closet, pretending to be someone I wasn't. And when you've experienced something that intense, it can't help but inform your writing. That, and a healthy dose of Raymond Carver."
With that in mind, watch and, well, listen to this "Made-for-TV Movie."
