PRESS RELEASE: RAY WALL BAND'S WATCHMEN SONG
Ray Wall Band, pioneers of "Comic Book Rock" music, has just released their new single inspired by the greatest graphic novel of all time. "WATCHMEN" is a razor sharp, dark lyric, fully realized tribute to the mysterious world of fallen super-heroes. The band, which has done projects on The X-Men, Fantastic Four, Dark Knight and others, succeeds again in bringing comic books "to your ears" in their most ambitious track yet. The group's music can be found on iTunes, and can be heard now on their myspace pages.
Says Ray Wall:
"The Watchmen novel presents so many different complexities that one can focus on; their mid-life crisis, their fall from grace in society, old scores to settle, lost love and more. To me what stood out was that these ordinary people put themselves on the line and did extraordinary things for the people. But at the end of the day, they have the same contradictory mix of faults and virtues that we all do. I wanted the song to reflect that on a grand level and give enough story content so that even the uninitiated could understand the Watchmen's world."
