Android Lust – “Shores Unknown” music video from Agony

Agony Main Theme – “Shores Unknown” – by Android Lust.

The critically acclaimed Survival-Horror game Agony will launch on PlayStation® 4, Xbox One – the all in one entertainment system from Microsoft – as well as PC on May 29th 2018.

Agony is a first-person survival horror game currently in development.
Players will begin their journey as tormented soul within the depths of hell without any memories about his past.

The special ability to control people on their path, and even possess simple minded demons,
gives the player the necessary measures to survive in the extreme conditions they are in.

By exploring hostile environment and interacting with the other weary souls of the hellscape,
the hero will soon understand that there is only one way to escape from Hell, and it will require a meeting of the mystical Red Goddess.

New video for “Sunset Hangover” by Vanessa Bley

Woohoo! Premiere of “Sunset Hangover” music video starring water warrior David Braun & fly girls Callie Gleason & Rebecca Nuss.

Once settled in LA, which was deep drought at the time, I wrote “Sunset Hangover.” After growing up in lush, upstate NY and Miami, the absence of water hit me harder than expected. I was conflicted about the need for wheels after walking everywhere in NYC. This music video was shot in Santa Ynez, CA, where I live now. It features my anti-fracking, water warrior friend, David Braun who I met in 2011 after watching the HBO documentary, GASLAND.

I, Parasite: 1996 – 2016

Around June or July in 1996 Justin and I started I, Parasite. We met via a classified ad I placed in a local NYC newspaper. A couple of years and a few demos later we put out our first album, Turin. Six “proper” releases and twenty years after that, I’m mixing the fourth full length I, Parasite album, Österlanden. A lot has changed since those early days. I, Parasite sounds like a completely different band, and I am a rather different person. The project has accumulated a lot of baggage, and I just don’t quite feel the same connection to it (or the name) anymore.

So I’m excited and also a bit sad to announce that Österlanden will be the final I, Parasite album. But Österlanden also marks a new beginning for me. I’m really proud of this record, and would like to live in this place for quite a while longer. I also hope that you will enjoy it and stick with me as I continue in that direction under a new name. There will be more about this and other future musical projects once Österlanden is complete and out in the world.

I know working with me is often not an easy thing, so I would like to thank all of the people who have played with, guided, and/or contributed to I, Parasite over the years:

Justin Butts, Mike Ferguson, Henry Kohler, Tom Harris, Michael Alexander, Michael Morel, Ray Cicero, Bret Calder, Bilian Frost, Michael Weeks, Ron Schecher, Lars Hansen, Colin McKay, Mike Renfield, Alan Nino-Castro, Brandon Hodges, Scott Landes, Tash Cox, Emily Joy, Steve Kefalas, Rob Caggiano, Melyssa Anishnabie, Paul Komoda, and Shikhee.

And thank all of you for supporting me all these years! Here’s to more music in 2017 and beyond.
