Powerhouse vocalist and songwriter Craig Owens has released his new album VOLUME 1, available now on all digital music services through Velocity Records. Physical copies of VOLUME 1, including limited edition vinyl and CD, will be available November 10, 2023. Stream the album and pre-order physical copies HERE.

Owens has brought new life to favorites from his vast catalog of work, pulling songs from Chiodos, Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows, Isles & Glaciers and badXchannels. Tracks like “Baby, You Wouldn’t Last A Minute On The Creek” (Chiodos) and “GOLD” (Isles & Glaciers) transform into lush, emotional piano ballads. Destroy Rebuild Until God Shows track “Mr. Owl Ate My Metal Worm” gets an acoustic makeover while still capturing the intensity of the original. “It’s Easy” marks the only totally new song on the record, a rich auricular experience about seeking relief. The album concludes with a bright rendition of Chiodos hit “3 AM” that is begging to be sung-a-long too. VOLUME 1 serves an incredible journey through Owens writing and performance ability, spanning eighteen years of work.

VOLUME 1 was recorded, produced, engineered, and mixed by Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Wonder Years) and mastered by Alan Douches at West Side Mastering.

Chris Ianuzzi: Distant Suns/Wide Side two-sided single

Story: Ralph Greco, Jr. Spacey blips flow into a synth-led danceable beat, with vocals making more music than they do an actual statement on the first tune of NYC-composer Chris Ianuzzi’s new double single. This tune, “Distant Suns,” keeps up with its blurring, plastic-pulling video-game sounds, and swirling vocals throughout its mid-tempo four-minute + mélange. […]
