Self-Love and Toxic Exes fuel DAMIEN to release new single.

DAMIEN announces new album, and first single to release September 7th

Ipswich’s self-professed prophet of prose, alt-electro-rock musician DAMIEN has this week announced a new album is coming in 2022. The album, titled, ‘Wrong Age. Wrong Race. Wrong Gender.’ carries an overall theme of coming to terms with one’s own identity and struggles with self-hatred and self-doubt and is directly influenced by DAMIEN’s own experience of himself as a queer, non-binary artist with bi-polar disorder. It was titled due to the human tendency throughout history to favor or despise people based on age, race and gender.

The first single off the album, ‘Love Myself’, will be released on September 7th this year and is a dark, heavy, synth driven song, drawing influence from industrial and darkwave artists such as Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails.

‘Love Myself’ was written and produced by DAMIEN in his home studio in Ipswich QLD, mixed by Hugh Middleton of Out With The In studios, West End, QLD, and mastered by Matthew Gray (Brisbane).

DAMIEN performed all instruments on the song,

Love Myself’ is written in response to the cliched sentiment that, ‘to love another you must first love yourself’, and is a self-declaration that ‘I do love myself’. The song affirms independence and self-appreciation, but also asserts that our previous partners, irrespective of how toxic they or our relationships were, can also be our teachers, empowering us to become more whole and complete versions of ourselves, by ourselves.

‘Love Myself’ is a sexy, sassy and brazen song, and is indicative if the overall flavor of the forthcoming album ‘Wrong Age. Wrong Race. Wrong Gender’.

The first single off the album, ‘Love Myself’, will be released on September 7th
