Nashville, TN (November 1, 2019)
Nashville’s Christian rock band, Rusty Shipp, is set to release its latest album, Liquid Exorcist, on Thursday, November 7th. The concept album, which tells the story of sea mine terrorism in the 1940’s, has already spawned three singles with music videos (taking place on a submarine), and gained acclaim from CCMmagazine.com, HM Magazine, PureGrainAudio, Jesusfreakhideout.com, and NewReleaseToday.
In the album, the band constructs an underwater soundscape with tracks weaving in and out of each other to tell the story of an evil organization that has laced the ocean with a hundred sea mines, making war with their enemies and innocent sea-dwellers alike. The album title is a reference to the metaphor of “exorcism,” i.e., the casting out of a spirit from the body, that is a theme present in every song on the record, reflecting the different experiences of the souls affected by this marine warfare.
“For this new album we’re really drawing out the ingredients of our staple ‘Nautical Rock ‘n’ Roll’ sound in bold and experimental ways to tell the story of Liquid Exorcist. While progressing the experimental sounds of this new genre, we’re also channeling our roots to give homage to our collective influences, such as doing a Chris Cornell tribute song and songs that are an obvious nod to 60’s surf rock, prog rock, and Nirvana-esque grunge pop.” —Russ T. Shipp
Rusty Shipp is taking up the torch passed down from rock legends of the past five decades; to hold it up in an age when mainstream music has seemed to give up on rock bands. Tirelessly thinking and working like it’s a divine mission, the band’s goal is to make people feel inspired and empowered by creating the catchiest, most creative rock music on Planet Earth.
