DES ROCS Announces This Is Our Life EP
October 2, 2020, a year ago
Des Rocs is known by his fans as an artist who would die for every single note and every single word in every one of his songs. And that is exactly what he does on his upcoming, very personal EP, This Is Our Life, due out December 4, 2020 (300 Entertainment), and today's release of the EP's title track. The five songs on This Is Our Life - "Pieces," "Love And A Smoking Gun," "Suicide Romantics," "Nothing Personal," and the title track - chronicle Des' personal struggles that he feels every person on this planet can probably relate to. Also released today is the music video for "This Is Our Life," a vicious and intense metaphoric battle for Des' sought-after birthright, destiny and true potential.
Two years ago, Des and his best friend were living the dream. They had spent thousands of hours paying their dues in dingy New York clubs, playing their hearts out to nobody. "It took a minute and a little luck," said Des, "but we rose out of there and toured the country opening for bands we'd only known from the posters on our childhood walls." But life can deal some curious blows, and Des' best friend got sick. Really sick. And their dream quickly faded.
Knowing that his buddy was in the best possible medical hands, Des rented an Air BNB in upstate New York, a little studio cabin off in the middle of nowhere where he could make loud noises and not bother anyone. "I thought long and hard about who I was and what I wanted to say to the world," he remembers, "and It was in that cabin I knew that a trilogy was born." This Is Our Life, that follows Des' two previous eps - Let The Vultures In (2018) and Marty Parade (2019), "is the final chapter of that trilogy, a body of work that is the truest representation of who I am as an artist and a person."
