Let’s Get Bloody, State Shirt’s third full-length album (and final album to be released on CD). Released on December 6, 2011.
It’s a pattern of violence. Perhaps handed down from an angry and disillusioned father, or mother. Created by an environment of despair, a dead-end mill town, a drinking problem, an aimless future. One that drives a young girl to kill herself, a husband to beat his wife, or a mother to leave her newborn to die.
“It started with a close friend who had been abused and beaten for years, tried to kill herself and failed.” State Shirt says. “I’m so glad she failed. But it made me realize that this cycle of violence gets passed down from those that hate where their lives have ended up.”
When State Shirt began working on Let’s Get Bloody, these desperate stories began to weave themselves through hand-built loops, cheap electronic keyboards, a dilapidated student drum kit, and the pickups of his pawn shop guitars. Though his fiery and emotive vocals, and intricate bedroom production, State Shirt develops a cohesive collection of infectious indie-tronic anthems that make us realize life shouldn’t end with bloody hands.
Let’s Get Bloody is open source, providing raw materials for remix artists to create new works based on the source material.
