Saudade Release New Track, “Crisis” (ft. Chino Moreno, Gil Sharone, Mackie Jayson and More)
Saudade, the long-running experimental metal collective helmed by Chuck Doom, have unveiled a new song, “Crisis.”
As is always the case with Saudade, “Crisis” features quite the array of guest musicians and collaborators: Chino Moreno, John Medeski, David Torn (David Bowie, The Bad Plus, John Legend, etc,) Gil Sharone (Marilyn Manson, Dillinger Escape Plan, etc) Robert Thomas Jr. of Weather Report, Mackie Jayson of Cro-Mags and Dr. Know of Bad Brains. Chino executive produced the track and has also collaborated with Doom on other projects (Crosses, Team Sleep, Palms).
The track is quite the adventure, full of metal blasts, jazz piano freakouts and electronic spurts of noise. The accompanying video, created by Doom, pays tribute to his mentor, bassist Jaco Pastorius, who died in 1987.
“Crisis” will be released as part of the Shadows & Light / Sanctuary Dub EP 12 inch that includes the previously released song “Shadows & Light” (featuring Chelsea Wolfe & Chino Moreno), an upcoming single featuring Ho99o9 and another instrumental track.
