Check out this new song from my forthcoming album “The Love and the Volume”, which will be available everywhere October 14th, 2014.

Words and Music by Arison Cain. Produced by David Bowick. Mixed and Mastered by Matthew Corey at Sidetracked Studios. Featuring performances by Arison Cain, David Bowick, Geoff Godfrey, Nate Hertweck and Matthew Corey.

Lyrics:
This is one more attempt to be on the
verge of reconstructing my masterpiece.
This is one more beautiful line before
I decide to write myself into
the corner I’ve been crawling toward
and if I’ve really been as blessed
as every stranger ever said,
then maybe now it’s time
I showed them why I am,
so here goes.

After all of this catastrophe,
the love that I’ve been searching for
still hasn’t seen the last of me
and after all of this hyperbole,
the friends that I’ve been sacrificing
haven’t seen the worst of me
and if it all goes as planned,
they’ll be rushing from the stands
just to catch a glimpse of
my heart shattering again,
so here goes.

So I thank you for being patient
while I figured out just how to break this to you.
I’ve resigned to do what I’m designed to do
and I’ll inspire ‘til I die like I’m inclined to do,
so here goes.

Valiant Attempt

by Arison Cain

I’m stunned by the support that you guys have shown us over the last few months. A lot of people have been asking if they can still help us with the album now that our crowdfunding campaign is over. I originally put together this exclusive album of B-sides and rare songs for everyone that supported our campaign, and I’ve decided to release it today. If you like it, pay what you want for it, or you can just play it loud and let loose. Either way, this is my gift to you. I hope you enjoy it!

For a long time, I have heard people say that rock music is dead.

I, for one, have refused to subscribe to that notion. Sure, it might be against the ropes, facing a flurry of jabs from shitty DJs, models that pass themselves off as musicians, social media gurus, and record label suits that have no idea why people even listen to music in the first place, but I believe it will take a lot more than that to kill the spirit of rock and roll.

I have also read for the last several years that the album, as an art form, is dead and buried. In the age of the iTunes single, this argument might have some merit. To me, an album is more than a collection of songs. I contend that music is at it’s best when it tells a compelling story, and a great story needs time to unfold. I grew up listening to stories like Pinkerton, The Marshall Mathers LP, The Colour and the Shape, Dark Side of the Moon, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, Pet Sounds and Nevermind. I started making music because I wanted to tell stories of my own. 

I believe I can bring rock music back from the brink of destruction.

After several years or work, and some heartbreaking setbacks, I have almost completed my new album, The Love and the Volume. We are in the final stages, and I want nothing more than for you to be a part of it. I have partnered with the folks over at IndieGoGo on a crowdfunding campaign to finish the album. I am offering deluxe pre-order packages, one-of-a-kind performances and even writing unique personal songs with every donation. I promise, the incentives are worth it. There are only a few weeks left, and every little bit helps.

Do you want to be a part of making this dream become a reality? Click here to find out how you can help.

As a bonus, everyone who donates even $1 to the campaign will receive a brand new, unreleased song from the upcoming album this Friday, May 2nd.

Thank you for your support over the past several years. I can’t wait to share this story with all of you.

Much Love,
Arison Cain
