Dion Lunadon – Screw Diver: New Song of The Day

Dion Lunadon (D4/A Place To Bury Strangers) has just released his new album, Beyond Everything and with it, a new single, Screw Diver.

Here’s the record company blurb with details:

After releasing his self-titled debut album in 2017, Dion Lunadon (The D4, ex-A Place To Bury Strangers) is set to release his sophomore album, Beyond Everything, tomorrow via In The Red Records. Available for pre-order HERE

Dion LunadonCheck out the brand new video for Screw Diver, edited by Cedric Bixler-Zavala of The Mars Volta/At The Drive-In. Here’s what Cedric had to say about it; “Wanna get real lost in the desert with The Devils Advocates? Then come take a manic ride with this remix of Michel Levesque’s 1971 classic, Werewolves On Wheels. Watch as they “ride the demolition” set to the visceral slashes of Dion Lunadon’s new song Screw Diver.”

Dion LunadonBeyond Everything will be Dion’s first release on In The Red (an ideal match for his music), as well as his first full-length since departing A Place To Bury Strangers. Written, performed and recorded by Dion, the songs tap into a raw, palpable energy that blur the line between the music and the person. Drums on the record were played by Blaze Bateh (Bambara) and Nick Ferrante (The Black Hollies).

The lead single released in April, Living And Dying With You, was accompanied by an animated video by Mexico City animator, Julián Name, followed by a second video in May for It’s The Truth, directed by Alexander Barton and a third, By My Side, which he produced in collaboration with Blau! Production.

Dion LunadonDion says; “The record was written and recorded sporadically between 2017 and 2019. I probably wrote about 100 songs during this period. The first album was pretty relentless which I liked, but I wanted to make something more dynamic for the 2nd record. Something that could be more conducive to repeated listens. I’d get in my studio, come up with a song title, and start working on any ideas that I had. For example, with Elastic Diagnostic, the idea was to create a hum that evokes the sound of life coursing through your body. Everything else kind of formed around that idea.”

Touring with a full band in North America and Europe/UK throughout 2022, the US tour begins in Denver tonight and includes dates supporting The Black Angels, with European and UK dates in November. All dates are listed below with more TBA. Tickets available HERE.  

Dion will also be playing an album release party in New York at TV EYE on August 19th, with openers Memphis TN band Sweet Knives and Brooklyn’s Cold Dice. Tickets for that show are on sale HERE.

A gritty and raw glam-like anthem centered around chugging power chords, Lunadon’s howled and desperate delivery, forceful and propulsive drumming paired with an explosive feedback-driven coda, “It’s The Truth” further cements the Kiwi-born, Brooklyn-based artist’s reputation for crafting anthems meant to be played as loud as humanly possible.” Joy Of Violent Movement
