"Gift Of Desperation", the latest single from U.K. songwriter/producer Johnny Wore Black, is a collaboration with MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson. Taken from Johnny Wore Black's debut album, "Walking Underwater", which will be released early next year, "Gift Of Desperation" is a thought-provoking dark melodic song where the words and music explore some of the harsh realities of finding a way out of the darkness.
"Gift Of Desperation" will be released to accompany Ellefson's biography, "My Life With Deth" (Howard Books/Simon & Schuster, October 29, 2013) which tells of his unflinching story of rock 'n' roll excess in one of the world's best-known bands. It's an eye-opening account that pulls no punches of his journey from thrash metal legend to Lutheran minister. MEGADETH's history reads like a how-to manual of excess of all kinds. If you're looking for revelations, they're here, including the drug habits which brought the bandmembers to their knees.
"Gift Of Desperation" sees the continued participation between Johnny Wore Black and Ellefson after the two worked together on previous tracks "All The Rage" and "Up In Flames". "Gift Of Desperation" is also accompanied by a video which David came to London to shoot. The song was mixed by Grammy Award-winning producer David Bottrill (TOOL, STONE SOUR).
"Gift Of Desperation" and "Walking Underwater" will be available from iTunes and other good digital retailers.
