Psychedelic rock-folk-Americana stalwarts The Stevenson Ranch Davidians have unveiled their new single ‘Wack Magick’. This is the second single from the album ‘Amerikana’, following up the lead single ‘Holy Life’. Scheduled for release in June 2017 on Minneapolis-based Picture In My Ear Records, this is the first album The Davidians’ have released since 2009.
While the lineup has continually coalesced around lead singer and songwriter Dwayne Seagraves, the collective has always had a guiding vision and goal: to create music that seeks to simultaneously demystify and deify the human experience.
Seagraves states that Amerikana also celebrates what he views as true magic: human will put to action. Through his songs, he hopes to convey the sense that human beings have been the sole source of all great insights and achievements throughout history, and that power originates from within individuals rather than from gods, governments or other external sources.
“I view the record and every song on it as a celebration of the human spirit as well as a condemnation of those who seek to destroy it. What inspired it was a period of time in which I was exposed to those who seek to destroy it and the record was written as a direct counter balance to that,” says Dwayne Seagraves.
The Stevenson Ranch Davidians “Amerikana” LP will be available on Classic Black 150G Vinyl with Lyric Inner Sleeve, but is already available for pre-order on Picture in My Ear Records ‘ Bandcamp at https://pictureinmyearrecords.bandcamp.com/album/amerikana ~ ‘Holy Life’ is also currently available on iTunes and Spotify.
