Industrial/goth artist Staytus (aka 25-year old Sam Grundemann) will soon be unleashing her debut 13-track album, “Disease Of The Mind”. Right now Staytus is sharing three singles that set the tone of the album. The release itself is built on elaborate synth-scapes, with distorted, warped guitars, and pulsating beats. It was producer Adam W. Berg who worked on “Disease Of The Mind”’s final mixing and mastering at Manifest Music in Santa Monica, CA.
“I had to write Disease Of The Mind to cope with my mental health struggles,” said Staytus. “I truly felt like a broken, fallen angel when I composed this album. Acknowledging your feelings of hurt, anger, and despair can help you move through them to find hope and relief.”
The three songs are “Dreams From Hell”, “Hourglass” and “Part of Me”. You can check out the tracks below.
Since you’re here …
… we have a small favour to ask. More people are reading Side-Line Magazine than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can - and we refuse to add annoying advertising. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
Side-Line’s independent journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. But we do it because we want to push the artists we like and who are equally fighting to survive.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps fund it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as 5 US$, you can support Side-Line Magazine – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
