(Partial Press Release) Americana roots rock artist ROD MELANCON today partnered with YAHOO! MUSIC to debut the official music video for "Dwayne and Me." The dark and haunting song, which looks back on people who've gone, is one of the standout tracks off the Louisiana born-and-bred and Los Angeles-based singer and songwriter's new album SOUTHERN GOTHIC. Click here to watch the cinematic video for "Dwayne and Me" which was shot in Kansas and directed by Christopher Good.
SOUTHERN GOTHIC marks MELANCON's sophomore full-length album. Heand producer Brian Whelan push the sonic soundscape and take listeners on a journey into the dark, and often twisted, night of the soul on songs like "With The Devil," "Perry," "Dwayne and Me,"and "Different Man," about the psychological darkness of a returning vet. MELANCON also reflects on his past in "Promises"--"You can't go back to promises come and gone"--and jumps headlong into the infectiously rootsy + rocking groove of "Redhead" which Sirius XM's Outlaw Country is currently spinning.
SOUTHERN GOTHIC is available digitally and physically on CD and vinyl via iTunes here, and Amazon here
