DEF CON SOUND SYSTEM Frontman / Founder ADAM SEWELL Completes Silver Bullets Album Companion Book

Def Con Sound System frontman / founder Adam Sewell - also knows as the frontman for Monster Voodoo Machine - has checked in with the following update:

"It’s done. I’ve finished writing my first book. Honestly doubted myself that it would happen... but here we are, at long last. Just needs the final assembly layout - then off to be printed. 

This is the long promised Def Con Sound System Silver Bullets "album companion book." The first printing of 200 copies will all be hand signed and numbered, and included with the Silver Bullets LPs

I will be mailing out copies to everyone who have already purchased the LP.  To those who have been waiting patiently for their books - my truly sincere apologies for the delay. This was a rather difficult experience for me committing these words to the pages, and I’m hoping that you enjoy the final results. 

Thank you for your patience and support!"

Since 1996, Toronto-based, Juno Award-winning musician Adam Sewell has used Def Con Sound System as a catch-all band name for miscellaneous musical projects; including soundtracks, one-off live performances, and even a short lived full-on touring band. Sewell  began writing the first Def Con Sound System full-length album in 2008. In 2011, the first single from the not-yet-finished album, "Pistol Whipped", was released. The song featured a Clash-meets-1960s spy soundtrack-sounding vibe which would hint at the direction Sewell and Def Con Sound System were headed musically. Sewell would then find himself sidetracked for a number of years, co-writing and producing the critically-acclaimed retro-soul, debut solo album by former Love Inc vocalist Simone Denny titled The Stereo Dynamite Sessions Vol. 1.

Fast forward to the year 2019 and Sewell has finally completed that full-length album which has become Silver Bullets. Co-produced by Sewell, and Jon Drew (Arkells, Tokyo Police Club, Fucked Up), the album was conceived, and written as a fictional movie soundtrack compilation album which combines radically different sounding songs and soundscapes to take the listener into the fictionally cinematic world of the non-existent film ‘Silver Bullets’, and out of the comfort zone of a traditional rock album format.
