BloodLust! is very pleased to announce the release of the vinyl version of CHRIS CONNELLY's outstanding Artificial Madness album. Artificial Madness represents a momentous step in the progression of this very accomplished Chicago-based, Scottish-born musician, offering a suite of contemporary, heavy, high-energy rock songs that reveal measured lyrics paired with meticulously crafted songs. While Chris has certainly delivered beautiful records in the past, the maturity of this album may surprise some fans who have followed his prolific, diverse and rather hedonistic career in music. Lyrically, the album offers a set of narratives that seem to accurately define a truly dystopian landscape, setting stories in invented locales, in which the inhabitants lead a dark, dehumanized and anxious existence. Stylistically, Artificial Madness sounds very modern, even as it draws from an arsenal of heavy post-punk music elements that Chris has built upon since the mid- to late-1980s, whether solo, with MINISTY or REVOLTING COCKS or with current and former members of Killing Joke and Public Image Limited.
