John 5 will digitally release a new solo single, “This Is My Rifle”, on June 17. The track is taken from his his upcoming album, “Careful With That Axe”, to be made available later in the year through 60 Cycle Hum.
With rapid-fire, machine-gun riffs, anthemic sweeps and John 5’s blistering-fast six-string assaults, “This Is My Rifle” is the first single from John 5’s new CD and features Rodger Carter on drums and Matt Bissonette on bass.
The “This Is My Rifle” artwork includes a photo by Ray Gutierrez of StrangeBeautifulArt, who previously took the pictures for John 5’s “The Art Of Malice” album.
In a recent interview with Loudwire, John 5 stated about the “Careful With That Axe” album: “It’s just crazy, man. ‘Careful With That Axe’ and all the song titles are related around axe murders and stuff, so it all comes around and makes sense.”
Speaking to Metal Obsession, John 5 said about his forthcoming CD: “If people liked my earlier work, you’re going to be really excited about it. It’s really intense. It’s, like, when you listen to it, it’s, like, ‘What just happened?’, which is one of the song titles. It’s really exciting. I can’t wait for people to hear it.”
