Matt Duke is set to release his second Ryko album, One Day Die, on March 1st, 2011. Produced by Jason Finkel, the 11-track collection of whip-smart, emotive songs touches on the darkness implicit in that title and uses it as a springboard to redemption and rebirth. One Day Die is the anticipated follow-up to his Ryko debut, Kingdom Underground (2008).
“The new album has a few different styles, but it is pure singer-songwriter at its core with production that feels very aggressive and dynamic. I think that fans will be a little surprised and excited by the direction I’ve taken with One Day Die,” says the 25-year-old South Jersey native, who grants that he went to his own dark place last year after suffering a hand injury that was serious enough to jeopardize his ability to play guitar again.
