Alesana bassist Shane Crump recently branched out with a solo-project called The Ivory . The debut EP Gloom is currently streaming at AbsolutePunk and will be released independently on 6/30
"Gloom is my passionate heart-aching love story," says Crump. "This record holds all of the emotions I felt while going through the worst break up of my life. At the time, I had this dreary cloud resting over my head and couldn't snap myself out of my melancholy state. God and music were my only outlets, so I poured my heart and soul into about fifty songs and picked five. This EP has helped me overcome many weaknesses in my life, and I can only pray that it helps mend another broken heart out there."
The Ivory has also released a music video for their first single "I'm A Mess" featuring Sierra Kay of VERSA. Watch it here or below.
