As one of the largest shopping weekends concludes, Sevendust drummer Morgan Rose spent it celebrating the release of his debut solo EP, Controlled Chaos, available via Rise Records.
Controlled Chaos shines the spotlight on not only Morgan’s drumming prowess, but his songwriting, singing, and production chops as well. Morgan co-wrote the EP with Sevendust bandmate Clint Lowery.
To commemorate the release, today Morgan is releasing the first music video from the EP for the haunting track “Exhale”. The video follows Morgan as he prepares to head out and face all the challenges the world presents him while inspiring others to follow his path. Watch below.
With 2020 being a year of transition for so many, Morgan took the newly found time he was given, and decided it was time explore ideas of growth and change. With Clint on guitar and Jason Christopher (Corey Taylor, Prong) on bass, Morgan tracked six songs in less than ten days at The Lair in Culver City, CA. Fans of Morgan’s main gig will be pleasantly surprised at the different shades presented on Controlled Chaos, as the EP presents a varied musical blueprint on the legendary drummer. Morgan sounds equally at home singing with a keyboard and orchestral accompaniment as he does belting out his trademark primal screams in a full band setting.
