JOSH GRAHAM'S EXPERIMENTAL AMBIENT PROJECT IIVII DEBUTS VIDEO FOR NEW SONG "AFTERGLOW (LITTLE BLACK & WHITE THINGS)"

Long revered multi-instrumentalist, composer and artist Josh Graham, the orchestrator behind the experimental ambient solo project IIVII, will release the heavily awaited double album, "Grinding Teeth / Zero Sleep," on March 20th with Consouling Sounds. Graham has revealed a new song and accompanying video, "Afterglow (Little Black and White Things)," that originally appeared first at RevolverMag.com. 
 
WATCH THE VIDEO FOR "AFTERGLOW (LITTLE BLACK AND WHITE THINGS): 


"Afterglow (Little Black And White Things)" is found on "Grinding Teeth" half of the double album, which is inspired soundtrack to the true-life love story of Duane and Debra Johnson. 
Battling multiple health and mental illness issues, Debra Johnson asked her husband, Duane, to remove her from a medical facility so she could die at home. Over the next 5 days, they had an extended "death party;” smoking methamphetamine, listening to Quiet Riot and having sex. After Debra died in Duane’s arms, he wrapped her in linen and called the police. When they arrived on scene, Duane was standing naked near the front door, screaming that his wife was dead. The words "Death Parde God Hell" were spray-painted across the door. 
Touching on themes of love, death, drug use, sex and criminality, Grinding Teeth features guitars, drums, electric violin and cello, lap steel and electronic instrumentation. 
 
The album cover for "Grinding Teeth" uses "crystal meth” arranged in the form of Lucifer’s sigil. This imagery plays off of Duane’s spray painted door and works as a contrast to "Zero Sleep’s" cross, while also referencing the surreal darkness of this story. 
 
The new song follows the release of "Sun and Solace," which is found on the second half of the record, "Zero Teeth." Watch the video for it here:

"Zero Sleep" is an adapted score from Thomas D. Rotenberg's sci-fi short film, Don’t Forget to Remember.
