It is available now to buy or save on all streaming platforms. Check out the lyric video of their spirited cover of John Cafferty & The Beaver Brown Band’s “On the Dark Side” below..
aylor’s solo album, “CMFT” landed Top 10 on the official album charts in Australia, Germany, Switzerland and Austria, with Top 20 debuts in the UK, Finland and Japan (international chart). The release is highlighted by the singles, “Culture Head”, “HWY 666”, “CMFT Must Be Stopped” (feat. Tech N9ne & Kid Bookie), and the massive Active Rock radio hit, “Black Eyes Blue”. The album was a long time coming for Taylor, with newly written tracks sitting alongside some dating back to his teens. Recorded at Hideout Studio in Las Vegas, with producer Jay Ruston and Corey’s bandmates, Christian Martucci (guitar), Zach Throne (guitar), Jason Christopher (bass), and Dustin Robert (drums), the album traces a wild and exhilarating roadmap through Taylor’s musical psyche.
