“Biggest Fan”, the first single from CALL ME NO ONE, the new project featuring SEVENDUST members Clint Lowery (guitar) and Morgan Rose (drums), can be streamed at Loudwire.com. The song comes off CALL ME NO ONE‘s debut album, “Last Parade”, which will be released on June 5 via SEVENDUST‘s own label, 7 Bros. Records (through a partnership with Asylum Records, Warner Music Group‘s division designed to provide a variety of services to urban independent music labels and artists).
In a recent interview with Zoiks! Online, Clint stated about CALL ME NO ONE‘s upcoming debut, “It’s not really a heavy record, but it’s not a light record like the HDMS (HELLO DEMONS MEET SKELETONS) stuff I do. It’s somewhere in the middle. Some of the songs are pretty progressive, some of the songs are just rock. It all has a dark spooky twist to it; kind of NINE INCH NAILS meets FOO FIGHTERS.”
When asked how the project came about, Clint said, “Morgan and I just, for years, loved talking about different directions and things we couldn’t do in SEVENDUST. I hate to say it like this, but there is a ceiling with what we can do as SEVENDUST. We’ve done so many records; with that particular formula, there is only a certain amount you can do, musically. There is nothing wrong with that. There is a lot fulfillment within SEVENDUST and that whole process. We all love each other, the guys are great, the music is fun and the energy is really good. We felt like it was time to explore a little bit beyond SEVENDUST. I’ve always wanted to go and do a record and Morgan showed a lot of interest in helping me. We just decided to partner up. We’re going to try and make a band out of it and make a go at it while we have some down time in SEVENDUST. We’re not trying to set any expectations; we’re just trying to make a good record.”
During the same interview, Clint also spoke about the inspiration behind CALL ME NO ONE‘s name. “It’s about humility,” he said. “I’ve always been the kind of guy that’s in the background on things. There’s always been a Lajon [Witherspoon, SEVENDUST vocalist] or a Brett [Hestla, DARK NEW DAYS] or singers like that. I see myself as a pretty regular person and that is basically what the name is, CALL ME NO ONE. At the end of the day, it’s about the humility of it and the mystery of it. I’m a very human singer.”
