A Killer’s Confession Premieres New Single, ‘Tell Your Soul,’ Companion Video

Courtesy: Wake Up! Music Rocks

The wait for the new single and video from A Killer’s Confession is over.

The band premiered its new song, ‘Tell Your Soul‘ and its video late Thursday night, more than a week after the announcement was made that the two were coming. The single features guest vocals from Chad Gray (Hellyeah, Mudvayne) alongside front man Waylon Reavis.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Tell Your Soul’ is a melodic hard rock composition. The juxtaposition of the deeply contemplative mood in the song’s verses and more fiery approach to its chorus creates plenty of appeal.

Reavis spoke positively of the new single and collaboration during a recent interview.

“This song was an amazing collaboration between Sahaj Ticotin (Ra), Chad Gray, and myself,” said Reavis. “It was an honor to work with such true professional artists on such a powerful song. I hope everyone can feel the raw emotion and are moved just like I am when they listen.”

Gray shared Reavis’ appreciation for the song and its video.

“Waylon has wanted to do a song with me for a very long time, and earlier this year, we tried, but the song just didn’t fit either one of us,” he said. “So we went back to the drawing board with Sahaj Ticotin. The song really spoke to me, so we went for it. Everything just seems to fall into place. I’m really excited about this release.”

Added Gray, “My boy Wombat absolutely killed the video. I’m stoked for this song to drop. It’s a nice prelude to some more solo stuff I have on the way. I can’t wait for you all to hear this. Enjoy.”

Gray’s collaboration with AKC is just his latest. He worked with fellow rocker Hyro The Hero last year on his song, ‘Fight.’

The lyrical theme featured in the song matches that contemplative nature. Reavis talked about the song’s lyrical theme during the noted interview.

“This song is about forgiveness and acceptance of one’s own shortcomings,” he said. “I want to thank Chad and Sahaj for being such great friends and recording this song with me. Wombat absolutely crushed this video. Amazing talent all the way around!”  

The video for ‘Tell Your Soul’ presents Reavis and Gray in dimly lit home settings as they perform their respective parts to the song. Meanwhile, the song plays over while footage of an unidentified figure in a sheet is occasionally shown dancing as if it was a spirit.

‘Tell Your Soul’ and its video, are just the latest from the band’s forthcoming album, Remember. The album’s release date is under consideration. The album produced the single, ‘Trapped Inside‘ and its companion video April 29. The premiere of the song and its video came less than a month after the premiere of AKC’s then latest single, ‘Light to Darkness‘ and its video.

Additionally, the album has produced the singles, ‘Knife From Behind’ and its video, and Between Your Eyes’ and its video.

In other news, A Killer’s Confession is on tour with Gemini Syndrome for that band’s headlining tour. AKC’s run with Gemini Syndrome is scheduled to run through Aug. 15 in Albuquerque, NM. Following that run, AKC will head out on its own headlining tour, which is scheduled to launch Aug. 18 in Houston, TX and to run through Sept. 10 in Mansfield, OH.

A Killer’s Confession Launches First Tour Of 2021; Premieres New Single, Video

Courtesy: New Ocean Media

A Killer’s Confession is officially back on the road.

The band launched its first live run of the year this week. The tour, which includes support from Heartsick, launched Friday and is scheduled to run through May 24 in Austin, TX. Heartsick’s live dates are in support of its forthcoming EP, Cinco, which is scheduled for release June 25. It has already produced the single, ‘Thrill of the Hunt.’

A Killer’s Confession premiered its latest single, ‘Trapped Inside‘ and its companion video April 29. The premiere of the song and its video came less than a month after the premiere of AKC’s then latest single, ‘Light to Darkness‘ and its video.

A Killer’s Confession debuted another single, ‘Remember‘ and its video in January.

The musical arrangement featured in ‘Trapped Inside’ is a heavy, melodic hard rock composition. The use of the keyboards in the introduction to the verses helps to set the mood as the song’s subject contemplates his/her inner demons in the song’s lyrical content. The heavy guitars that are used throughout do just as much to help illustrate the battles that the song’s subject faces with those demons.

The current tour schedule for A Killer’s Confession are noted below.

Sunday, May 9th | Jacksonville, NC @ Hooligans

Wednesday, May 12th | Fort Wayne, IN @ Piere’s

Waylon Reavis Reveals Cancer Diagnosis

Courtesy: New Ocean Media

Former Mushroomhead front man Waylon Reavis is battling colon cancer.

Reavis, who currently fronts the rock band A Killer’s Confession, made the announcement Sunday at Headbangers Con. According to Reavis, the news is not all bad.

“Unfortunately, two months ago, I was diagnosed with colon cancer, and my heart crashed,” said Reavis. “My father passed away from this at 58 years old, and my mother passed at 39 from breast cancer. I was just waiting for my time. Luckily they caught it early, and they were able to cut it all out. I have had four removed, but they keep growing fast. I have changed my entire diet, thanks to my wife and taking medications. I may have to battle this the rest of my life, but I am going to live my life happy and FIGHT!”

In other news, Reavis revealed during his discussion that A Killer’s Confession is hoping to release its next, as yet untitled album in 2021. Information provided about the album states that the record’s lead single ‘ Remember’ is scheduled for release Jan. 27.

Reavis talked about what audiences can expect from the new album.

“A couple of songs are about my cancer and about my father,” said Reavis. “Those songs mean a lot to me. I cannot wait for everyone to hear them! I’m really excited about this one. Every album I write is different and will never be the same as the others. This one is both heavy and melodic. I took myself back to my roots. It’s what the fans want, so I always like to give them what they have been waiting to hear. 

A Killer’s Confession released its latest single ‘Last Chance’ and its video April 9. The song started airing on radio stations nationwide on July 16.

Reavis (ex-Mushroomhead) talked about the song’s lyrical theme in a recent interview.

“It is about an individual who has burned all bridges in their life and are on their last chance to make it right,” he said. “’Last Chance’” is a scream for forgiveness of past decisions we have made and how ashamed we can be from things we do.”

A Killer’s confession features Reavis on vocals, his step-son Morgan on drums and fellow former Mushroomhead member Tommy Church on guitar. JP Cross performs on bass.

Reavis (ex-Mushroomhead) talked about the song’s lyrical theme in a recent interview.

“It is about an individual who has burned all bridges in their life and are on their last chance to make it right,” he said. “’Last Chance’” is a scream for forgiveness of past decisions we have made and how ashamed we can be from things we do.”
