1st BASE RUNNER - Unveils The Third Track From Forthcoming Album

The USA based singer/songwriter 1st Base Runner continues his flurry of new releases with the new single "Break Even", released just yesterday, the third track from the forthcoming album Seven Years Of Silence, to be released 30 July.

1st Base Runner's outsider artistic vision is coloured liberally with the melancholy, gothic and avant-garde. Tim Husmann works with the meticulousness of a Reznor or slow play masters Godspeed You! Black Emperor, wrapping each of his astral post-punk pieces in airy layers of cosmic synthesis.

The 1st Base Runner's main figure Tim Husmann states: "This song is about the expectations other people place upon us in life.  This could and should include life partners, parents, and authoritarian figures in general.  It is written from the perspective of an adolescent trying to find meaning in the world.  It attempts to reconcile the void between what is often given as advice and the underlying truths of what it means to be human and to be at peace with one's existence.  This is also intertwined with other people's interpretations of a vengeful creator and the pitfalls of projecting anger on the behalf of a deity.  The instrumental sections of the song are intended to carry the listener away and into the deeper chasms of meaning and purpose."

1st Base Runner recently travelled to Los Angeles to shoot an extremely powerful, cryptic music video with legendary director Matt Mahurin (who directed Tom Waits "Hell Broke Luce", Alice In Chains "No Excuses", "Angry Chair" as well as videos for Sturgill Simpson, Soundgarden, Metallica, Hole, etc). The video was commissioned by Dilly Gent (as Radiohead's creative director, Dilly commissioned their music videos and photography, overseeing live shows for television, and producing all visual content, documentaries and films including the Grammy-nominated "Meeting People Is Easy.") What's likely attracted Matt Mahurin and Dilly Gent to an independent artist like 1st Base Runner is the bold, unabashedly dark artistic approach.
