BLEEDER Launch New Single

Here’s the BLEEDER story:

Be born with hemophilia.
Be infected with HIV and Hepatitis C through plasma medication in 1983 at age 10.
Almost die of AIDS at 24.
But live.
Write a memoir of your struggle. Title it BLEEDER.
When Michigan State Press publishes the book, get national press reviews, an interview on NPR with Bob Edwards, and win several awards.
Then, as if that isn’t enough catharsis to express the hurt and struggle, write and record songs in your basement, fill in the gaps not healed by putting words on a page.
Call it BLEEDER.
Release the songs.

Gommi Makes His Debut on Heavyweight Records with Single “Psychosis” and Disturbing Music Video

For anyone who has ever felt trapped by the chains of the corporate world, Gommi’s “Psychosis” track and music video may hit a little too close to home. The Philadelphia-based producer delivers a hard-hitting, psytrance-influenced journey to the darkest recesses of a mind being shattered piece by piece. The track’s relentless beats are accompanied by an almost tribal chanting of “p-s-y-c-h-o-s-i-s” that will drive you to the brink of insanity. The video is akin to watching a car crash – it’s uncomfortable, you want to look away, but simply can’t drag your eyes from the unsettling sequence of events. Starring Gommi himself as a middle-aged office worker waiting for the clock to strike five, the video depicts a disturbingly accurate version of a psychotic break in which Gommi goes through various stages of weird, creepy and sometimes harmful actions and thought processes. By the end, “Psychosis” will certainly have you questioning what you just watched. Find out what happens to Gommi’s office persona by watching the music video. “Psychosis” is out now on Carnage’s Heavyweight Records.
