In August, I got involved with a benefit show to raise money for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention. This October, I’ll be participating in the Out of the Darkness Walk to raise additional fund for the organization.
Please consider contributing the the campaign here, and thank you for the support you’ve given my art and music:
I just published a new music video to promote the newest album, Honesty. Honesty and Rain are both strong releases and I’m proud to have released them both within such a short span of each other. Incredible thanks to everyone who has already supported the releases this summer ❤
Check out all the videos and music I released:
I’ve just released another 12-song, full-length, album.
I don’t have a clever meme to go with this release or a flashy music video, and Rain is still very fresh and excellent, but, for my own personal growth, this album represents a milestone, I believe these songs are deeply vulnerable, capable of helping people, and I did not want to wait to release it.
The album is currently available on Bandcamp, but will be rolling out onto other platforms soon.
The music video for Rain has finally launched on YouTube and Facebook.
I know, I’m excited too!
Check them out here:
The album is also available on Spotify, iTunes, Google Play, Amazon, and Apple Music
And the album has been available on Bandcamp for a while now.
Thank you all so much for the incredible support you’ve already given, and thank you for listening.
Preorder Rain to get early access to the single. The album includes 4 new original songs, a new recording of “Tenacity,” an exclusive remix of “Faith and Trust” from The Russian White, and remixes from Red This Ever, Heretics in the Lab, Gopal Metro, and This Hollow Machine.
Physical copies will be available upon release.
Update: The release should be available on Spotify and most other services on May 10 now. Click here to pre-save it on Spotify.
I just published a new release featuring the single “Damaged If I Don’t Broken If I Do,” an extended mix of the song, a remix of the song by Gopal Metro, and another remix by Red This Ever of my song “A Pain That I’m Used To.”
Check it out below! And thank you so much for visiting my page and the support 🖤
I’ll have a new release dropping on Valentine’s Day called “Hurt You.”
The first song is what will eventually be the third track on my upcoming album, a very very GOTH cover of “Hurt You” by The Sounds. The song features my friend Samantha Darkly on Vocals.
The second song is an extended mix of my last release, “Is He Alive” that should be interesting for DJs and those of you who just don’t want that slamming drum machine to stop!

The song will also release exclusively on Bandcamp the weekend before it’s released anywhere else.
I just published a new music video on YouTube for my song “A Pain That I’m Used To.” The song was featured on my album from last spring, The Bad Ideas We Build Worlds, and holds a very special place in my heart.
While it’s one of the later songs on the album and I released the song “Faith & Trust” as a single before it, it’s actually the first song I really wrote after a very long break from writing any music as The Purge. Recording the studio version of the song is, literally, the way I built calluses back up on my fingers. I was in immense emotional pain after my long-term partner left me for another man and the first romantic experience I had after that fell apart in ways that I wasn’t prepared to expect or deal with yet.
This song helped me come to terms with the fact that I was trying to hold onto patterns of dependency and that I needed to stop seeking easy comfort in another person. I also realized that I had a tendency to try and fix the problems in other peoples’ lives before mine. I was emptying myself in ways that were ultimately destructive to me and not truly benefiting the people I was trying to help; it was a pain that I had become used to and I needed to learn how to live without it.
*Edit* Over the holiday week the song actually managed to peak at #1 for a few days! Big thanks to everyone who purchased the release and made that happen! ❤
My new song, “Is He Alive,” released on Bandcamp earlier this week. It won’t be available on Spotify or other big distributors until early in January, but so far this thing has very much exceeded my expectations!
The spirit of a 16 year old goth boy who wears Tripp pants and has Robert Smith hair lives inside of me and has never really left, no matter how much I’ve matured, and that 16 year old boy is absolutely blown away to see that “Is He Alive” is actually #3 on the Goth charts at Bandcamp.
Obviously, this couldn’t be possible without all the people who are listening and actually buying the track, so thank you sooooo much for doing that!
If you haven’t yet, you can find it at http://www.thepurgeva.bandcamp.com
You can get the song by itself, but the release also includes a remix of the song by Heretics in the Lab that gives the song a different and brutal urgency.
Again, very much in love with the fact that this has happened and THANK YOU SO MUCH for following me and supporting the music ❤
