|Jeremy Edge releases new single today "The World is Gone" with his band "The Jeremy Edge Project”
Jeremy Edge has released a new single "The World is Gone" with his band "The Jeremy Edge Project”, which will be the first sneak peak of "Coral Castles Vol 1 and 2" with an expected 2022 release.
This will mark the first offering since the debut "Jeremy Edge Project" album released in 2020. The debut record’s "Firedancer" peaked at #22 on Billboard’s Rock Indicator charts.
The World is Gone harkens to a more traditional blues ballad invoking Ray Charles inspired chord progressions and soulful singing but with blistering guitar work on the song’s outro.
Unlike the previous offering Edge takes over vocal duties on this new album but will be recruiting more surprise guest players to add flavor to the album alongside bassist John Delowery and Drummer Ray Gieda. The album promises to offer more 70s inspired bluesy rock blended with soul, hard rock and other stylistic blends.
"I wanted to do something kinda stripped down that is a more traditional jazz / blues progression. We put the rhythm guitar, bass and drums in the room and just jammed this one and I wanted to really capture the sound of the room, like the band was playing in a small club. I approached this lyrically from the perspective of a couple who had big plans and dreams and had those disrupted by some of the events that happened in the world, thus changing all of those plans and creating a distance."
Jeremy will return to the studio this month with Grammy nominated producer/engineer Mike Feretti to finish work on the record.
The trio will be promoting the release with a string of dates in northern PA and NY state this summer, including appearances with Jackyl and Randy Hansen.
"The World Is Gone", will be available at all major streaming outlets and downloadable on March 18th.
