Dave Kerzner has released a lyric video for his new song Static exclusively with Prog.

It’s the title track from the Sound Of Contact man’s second solo album which launched last week on Bandcamp.

Static is described as a progressive rock opera “about the clutter and chaos in modern everyday life” and is said to “boldly navigates through subjects ranging from noise in our heads of ego, jealousy, technological distractions, substance abuse and narcissism to profiling the hypocritical and corrupt characters in politics, media and society today.”

Kerzner says: “I aim to bring forward some of my favourite qualities of classic rock and prog albums and blend it with something new that feels right today.

“I like creating memorable songs that tell a story in a melodic musical way. This is what I love about the timeless rock albums in my collection and my goal is to contribute to other people’s collections in the same way.”

Kerzner is joined on the new album by a range of guest musicians, including Steve Hackett, Fernando Perdomo, Durga McBroom, Derek Cintron, Randy McStine, Matt Dorsey, Alex Cromarty and Colin Edwin.

Kerzner has several tour dates coming up, including shows across the US with District 97. Find a full list below.
