Damon Johnson debuted the video for his latest single this week.
Johnson debuted the video for his single ‘Battle Lessons‘ Tuesday. The video’s premiere comes more than a month after he debuted the single by itself. The song is the title track for Johnson’s forthcoming album from himself and his fellow musicians, The Get Ready. The album is scheduled for release Jan. 22 through Double Dragon Records.
The video features Johnson and company — drummer Jarred Pope and bassist Robbie Harrington — performing the song on what is meant to look like a television screen. Video effects are incorporated into the video to make it look like it is presented on a vintage VHS tape.
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
Johnson said the lyrical content that accompanies the song’s musical content comes from his own personal experiences.
“The lyrics to the song ‘Battle Lessons’ are about some past experiences in various bands I’ve been in through the years,” he said. “Though the words could easily be applied to any relationship.” He adds. “The lyric instructs me that I should take all the experience from my musical past and apply it to my now fully focused solo career.”
Johnson, known for his time with Brother Cane, Alice Cooper, and Slave to the System, announced his album’s pending release in December. Battle Lessons was produced and mixed by multi-platinum-selling producer Nick Raskulinecz (Stone Sour, Foo Fighters, Rush, etc.).
