Masterfully mixed by Ronan Chris Murphy (King Krimson), debut release, Beside a Ditch features 2 blistering original tracks and 1 epic cover of Failure’s, “Wonderful Life”, originally slated to appear on official tribute record, The Nurse Who Loved Me.

 

The record opens with an intricate, Tool-esque intro to debut single, “Committed” placing the listener in the fragile perspective of someone contemplating suicide.

 

A faint shimmer of light shines during a Cure/Smashing Pumpkins-like chorus offering a glimmer of hope only to drive the listener to the desperate edge of angst, turmoil & inner conflict with a grooving, proggy breakdown.

 

Then, finally, whisking you away to safety to a calming place of resolution, reminding you,life is bittersweet and meant to be savored.”

Follow up ballade, “Frozen Through (& Callous)” features, “ice-pick-y” guitars and the cold, bitter gusts of breathy vocals from a tortured soul coming to terms with abandonment while living in the wrong relationship by finding the strength to overcome, to get out and get over it.

 

Dialing up the angst to 11 with an anthemic chorus, this track is bound to be a sing along, “call and response” crowd favorite at live shows.

Closing the debut release is epic Failure cover song, “Wonderful Life”.

 

A magnificent departure from the original, the intro has a hooky Hendrix-esque swing to it, is upbeat and driving despite the dark subject matter.

 

Alanis Morriset veteran drummer, Blair Sinta shines as bright as a diamond on this track while partner in crime, Mike Eisenstein (both of Reigning Monarchs fame) adds his flavor to the mix with a subtle guitar cameo.

In essence, Undead Hearts are a down-tuned head nod to favorite 1990’s acts Soundgarden & Nirvana…with a slight dash of Metallica and Faith No More added to taste.

 

Fronted by crafty, soundsmith, Draven Midnight, Undead Hearts bring hooky melodies and thoughtful musicianship to the record and to the stage.

Recently the songwriter/producer was asked his thoughts on Them Crooked Vultures & Nirvana drummer, Dave Grohl. Draven does look a touch like Mr. Grohland wears all those hats in the band…singer, songwriter, producer, guitarist, manager, etc.

 

“He can play with us if he wants…”, the coy frontman responds charmingly.

 

What does Draven think when people compare him to the legendary Foo Fighters frontman?

 

“All I can say is…I’m NOT Dave Grohl he winces.

When asked about the inspiration behind Undead Hearts, the singer scoffs,

 

“Don’t let our name fool you. We’re about putting down the things that go bump in the night rather than pretending to be vampires.”

 

“Besides…have you ever hung out with a vampire!?!“

 

“Chances are you’ve hung out with a PSYCHIC VAMPIRE…and frankly, those guys F_*%ING SUCK.”

 

“Not the kind of folk you want to hang out with”, he adds bitingly.

In closing Draven adds,

 

“We look at the Undead Hearts music as if it were the soundtrack to the Walking Dead, or any other post-apocalyptic, survival-horror drama.”

 

“Shitty situations pop up in life, but there’s a need and drive to survive and make the most of what you have.”

 

“We want to inspire those of us who are in a tough position. Life is not all lollipops and rainbows. It’s bittersweet. You gotta take the good with the bad.”

 

“We prefer to give fans something special to hold onto when life is grim.”

 

“We’re survivors. We CRUSH things that go bump in the night.”

 

“We’re knights. Warriors destined to slay sonic dragons & BOGUS POP BOGEYMEN.”

 

The embolden singer adds, “Our fans are the squires and pages who fight the good fight alongside the artists to BRING NOBILITY BACK TO MUSIC.”
