Gitane Demone & Paul Roessler ‎– The New Young Kings Of Midnight Digi CD



New album, 6 page eco-digi-file with 8-page booklet, for fans of: Christian Death, Rozz Williams, Gitane Demone

New album by Gitane Demone (Christian Death, Rozz Williams) in collaboration with Paul Roessler (45Grave, Gitane Demone Quartet, The Screamers, Nervous Gender ..), a melancholic, classically inspired album about death, mourning, transience and farewell. Dedicated to their two friends Rozz Williams (Christian Death) and Darby Crash (The Germs).

In 2017, Gitane asked Paul to write orchestral music for a tribute she was writing for Rozz Williams, starting with his early life, his rise to creative icon… when she brought up his suicide, Paul said, “This is something personal to me now, as I lost my dear friend Darby Crash to suicide as well.” Together, Paul and Gitane explored the suicides: how they were affected, what Rozz and Darby could have accomplished had they lived (with such creative brilliance), the opportunities in life they missed by ending their lives, and rebirth.

Some time later, seeing Holst’s “The Planets” at the Hollywood Bowl and hearing the debut of Daniel Bjarnason’s Violin Concerto, they both decided to write orchestral pieces that became “The New Young Kings of Midnight”.

With this passionate album, Gitane and Paul have reached the pinnacle of their musical and lyrical creativity to date.
