Damon Johnson will open 2021 with a new band and album.
The guitarist/vocalist, known for his time with Brother Cane, Alice Cooper, and Slave to the System, has formed a new band called Damon Johnson and The Get Ready. The group (rounded out by drummer Jarred Pope and bassist Robbie Harrington) is scheduled to release its debut album Battle Lessons Jan. 22 through Double Dragon Records.
In anticipation of the album’s forthcoming release, the trio debuted the record’s lead single/title track in September. It is available to stream and download here. The song reached #13 on the Classic Rock chart.
The song’s musical arrangement boasts a sound that will appeal to fans of the rock sounds of the late 80s and early 90s. That is evidenced through the semi-operatic style vocals and the distinct guitar arrangement.
The lyrical content that accompanies the song comes across as a presentation that tells a coming-of-age story of sorts. The song’s subject seems to look back on a variety of things that have happened in life, and has come to specific realizations from that insight. That is only this critic’s interpretation and should not be taken as gospel.
Battle Lessons was produced and mixed by multi-platinum-selling producer Nick Raskulinecz (Stone Sour, Foo Fighters, Rush, etc.).
