Dave Griffiths Releases 'The Brutal Years' EP

Nov 22 2017

Singer/Songwriter Dave Griffiths has released his new EP 'The Brutal Years'. Recorded over 2 days at The Basement Studio, Wimborne, Dorset, the EP features five songs written over the last 18 months. After fronting rock band, BOSH and electronic project Chaos Curb Collaboration, Dave is now a solo artist bringing together years of live and studio experience.

"One of the hardest things to do is to be yourself. At least for me", admits Dave. "For the last few years I have planned a ‘side-project’ that would be a heavier and far more visceral sounding. For 20+ years I have loved listening to bands like Sonic Youth and Blur, where the guitars painted vivid pictures with their surging, squalling feedback and fuzzed-out tone. I have always carried that influence into the bands I’ve been in (Bosh, Chaos Curb) and my solo records, but never given myself fully to it.



Over the last 3 years I’ve faced some difficult times. I struggled with gnawing doubt in my faith, walked through depression, had issues in my home-life and at times, wanted to walk away from it all.

Part of the reason for wanting to hide behind another name was how vulnerable these songs are. These lyrics are a cry from a desperate place. And so this EP is the most raw music I’ve ever made. But I feel it’s right to be honest and stick my neck out and say ‘this is me’. It may not be everyone’s cup of tea - but it’s true to my musical inspiration and my heart. "
