The Anselmo Project to Release Debut Single from Upcoming Album

The Anselmo Project, the solo endeavor of keyboardist Anthony S. Anselmo, is excited to announce the release of the first single from his forthcoming solo album, this Thursday.

“The Way You Make Me Feel” marks the debut release in a series of singles set to premiere during Full Moon events, inspired by Anselmo’s musical hero, Peter Gabriel.

This Phil Collins-esque pop song introduces a new emotional depth not previously heard from The Anselmo Project. The track features Maggie Soul Bird on vocals, a new addition to the project. Hailing from Bulawayo, Zimbabwe, Maggie brings a soulful balance to the music that is both fresh and captivating.

“Maggie is absolutely amazing; it was like having your own private Patti LaBelle in your corner,” says Anselmo.

The song also features Till K on guitars, Phillippe Pansard on bass, Chuck McDowell on drums, and Anselmo on keyboards. The lyrics were co-written by Mike JM, and the track was mixed and mastered by Gustavo Madrid.

“This is just the beginning of a series of exciting releases that I can’t wait to share with all our wonderful fans,” said Anselmo, who is also currently working in the studio with Picasso’s Dream on their next album.

Fans can enjoy this dynamic love song on The Anselmo Project’s Bandcamp page starting Thursday, and it will soon be available on all streaming platforms.

The Anselmo Project, Founded by Anthony S. Anselmo, to Release New Single “Paranoid Monster” Ahead of Election Season

Columbus, OH – April 22 2024 – As the political landscape heats up and the nation braces for another election season, The Anselmo Project, founded by Anthony S. Anselmo, the visionary behind Picasso’s Dream and the driving force behind bands such as Blue August, emerges from the depths of the music scene with a powerful anthem that speaks to the tumultuous journey of navigating mental health amidst the chaos of politics. Their upcoming single, “Paranoid Monster,” promises to captivate listeners with its progressive rock brilliance and poignant lyrical narrative.

Originally conceived during the politically charged atmosphere of 2016, “Paranoid Monster” was initially intended as a track for the ‘David the Elder’ album. However, the song found new life when Olivia Francis, also known as Turquoise Rose, lent her evocative vocals and insightful lyrics to the project. The result is a hauntingly beautiful composition that reflects the inner turmoil of individuals consumed by the relentless back-and-forth of the political arena.

Featuring the stellar talents of Bill Beamba on guitar, Alex Lazcano on bass, and Vincent Simon from Picasso’s Dream on drums, “Paranoid Monster” is a testament to the collaborative spirit of The Anselmo Project and the visionary leadership of Anthony S. Anselmo.

“At its core, ‘Paranoid Monster’ is a reflection of the anxieties and struggles many face during election season,” says Anthony S. Anselmo, founder and creative genius behind The Anselmo Project. “It’s about feeling overwhelmed by the constant barrage of news, opinions, and uncertainty, and the toll it takes on our mental well-being.”

With its soaring melodies, intricate instrumentation, and thought-provoking lyrics, “Paranoid Monster” offers listeners a cathartic journey through the twists and turns of political discourse. As the nation braces for another round of elections, The Anselmo Project invites audiences to join them on this epic musical odyssey.

The single will be available for free on Bandcamp at http://theanselmoproject.bandcamp.com, allowing fans old and new to experience the genius of The Anselmo Project firsthand. Don’t miss your chance to immerse yourself in the sonic tapestry of “Paranoid Monster” and discover why The Anselmo Project continues to be a driving force in the world of progressive rock.
