RIVER BLACK's (REVOCATION, Ex-BURNT BY THE SUN) "Jaws" Is Groovy Sonic Devastation
River Black, the band that consists of guitarist John Adubato (ex-Burnt By The Sun), vocalist Mike Olender (ex-Burnt By The Sun, For The Love Of…, Endeavor), bassist Brett Bamberger (Revocation, Publicist UK), and Dave Witte (Municipal Waste, Publicist UK, ex-Burnt By The Sun), is back with yet another killer track before its self-titled debut album drops on July 7.
This time around, we get to premiere the band's new song "Jaws," which is a straightforward punch in the teeth that just keeps coming around and around until there's nothing left in your mouth but blood. Of course, vocalist Mike Olender has a great explanation for the song as well.
"Jaws" is about the paternal instinct of human nature. When I started a family I came face to face with certain forces I had not encountered before, rooted in the instinct to protect my family from harm. It was so deep that I found that I had to protect myself from my own emotions. A graphic news story about child abuse or predators could haunt me for days. I saw my sense of compassion and the need to understand why people do terrible things crumble with my acceptance of my own sin – wrath. This song is for the fathers and mothers who give of themselves selflessly to provide for their families, and it is dedicated to the victims of neglect and horrific abuse.
