Man Overboard opener watermedown premieres new song

Post-rock solo project of 21-year-old Jonny Mays, watermedown, is streaming his single “God I Found Hell” You can listen to the track below:

The 21-year-old explained the story behind “God I Found Hell” in a press release saying the song is “about having a really interesting time in Cincinnati, [Ohio] that heavily reinforced my comprehensive perception on college, drugs, and religion. I was on the road with Casey Bolles and half of Head North in mid-January of last year, and we hopped on a last minute nightmare of a house show around the [University of Cincinnati] campus. To paint a picture of the situation, imagine the four of us backed into a corner inside Rob Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses, but instead of the Firefly family, we’re actually amongst coked-out, head-standing, My Chemical Romance-on-an-electric-ukulele-playing satan-worshipers that very much resembled the wretches from Gears of War as they leapt across the house when the police inevitably arrived, illuminating the trash-bag covered windows with strobe lights attached to their pistols; all immediately following Casey’s set being halted mid-song by a person with the urgent question that I will word-for-word never forget for the rest of my life: ‘Do you mind if I perform a satanic ritual underneath you while you play?'”

watermedown is releasing their first studio EP Somewhere, Sleepless due to be out September 25 on Equal Vision Records. You can preorder Somewhere, Sleepless here.
