Rustbelt Shares New EP+ “Gimme A Sign” Visualizer Jan 19, 2024
|After the release of a handful of stellar singles over the past few months— “Oh My God Here It Comes Now,” “You Got Nowhere To Go But You’re Going There Tonight,” and “Running Thru The Rave” — Rustbelt (the solo project of artist John Chiaverina, formerly known as Juiceboxxx) finally unveils his brand new EP, You Got Nowhere To Go But You’re Going There Tonight, out today via Dangerbird Records. The EP’s release also marks the arrival of one last single, “Gimme A Sign,” which comes alongside an accompanying visualizer.
As Chiaverina wrote on his newly released track:
“Please give me a sign! Somebody, please, anybody out there, wherever you are—seriously, I’m not kidding here—give me a goddamn sign! I wrote this song about a confusing life in music and everything that goes along with it. Will I ever write another song in 6/8 time? That is in God’s hands now. My identity has been ethered. All that is left are the songs. Someday it will all make sense.”
Continuing on the holistic new EP, he wrote:
“These are songs I had to write and get out into the world. I spent 20 years making music under the name JUICEBOXXX and I still feel pretty unresolved about the whole thing. This EP is about growing up and freaking out and working hard to keep going. These are songs about the past, songs about the present, songs about the future looking back at the past, songs about playing at bloghouse parties… I’m working within a tradition of American Underdog Pop Music, everything from DIY singles to Top 40. Within that, I’m trying to squeeze out something catchy and weird and my own.”
The full-length You Got Nowhere To Go But You’re Going There Tonight EP is out now via Dangerbird Records. Stay tuned for more from Rustbelt, coming soon.
