We’ve got a brand new installment of the new-and-improved Dying Scene Sessions coming at ya today, and it’s a damn good one (if we may be so bold).
As you’re no doubt aware by now, Seattle-based singer-songwriter Rocky Votolato‘s eighth solo album, Hospital Handshakes, came out earlier this week on his new label home, No Sleep Records. It’s his biggest, boldest, and dare we say best album to date. And while Hospital Handshakes might be more of a “rock album” than Rocky’s put out to date, the songs were written on acoustic guitar and take on a particularly haunting element when stripped down to their barest elements.
Dying Scene was luck not only to chat with Rocky over the phone a couple weeks ago but to sit down with him for an exclusive acoustic session as he wound down his intimate tour of secret living room shows across the US. Check out Rocky’s Dying Scene Sessions performances of “White Knuckles” and “So Unexpected” below!
