Dion Lunadon: It's The Truth

Dion Lunadon of The D4 and A Place To Bury Strangers fame, delivers a second track off his upcoming sophomore album, Beyond Everything. The super gritty garage rocker, It's The Truth, arrives together with a dark video of Super 8 visuals directed by Alexander Barton. 

"This is one of my favorite songs on the record," says Dion Lunadon. "It started with the opening drum beat and the rest came together quickly. It’s about me writing songs in my little hovel of a studio and looking forward to my wife’s return home from work. A 'distance makes the heart grow fonder' kind of thing."

Alexander Barton says: "In Dion’s live performance he has a wall of sound and noise, it's very textural and real. About 3/4 of the way through his set, he drags a chain out of a bag like a snake wrangler presenting a cobra to the audience. It’s an exciting moment of the set where he breaks the routine of the rock formula and shares his experimental interests and the audience really laps it up. The cameras pop out and feed his exhibitionism. I make films that feel and use not only the beauty of film, but welcome the noise and error that come with the raw and naive nature of my tools. The chain as an object and material is a fully loaded symbol and historical icon which is a powerful character itself. I wanted to honor the chain for all its brilliance, referencing metal, design, rock n’ roll, violence, sculpture, industrialism, eroticism, and Jacob Marley. It’s The Truth is about material and the spectacle."

Beyond Everything releases on June 10th, 2022 via In The Red Records.
