Michael Beach Announces New Album – Shares Lead Single & Video “De Facto Blues” – ‘Dream Violence’ Out on Goner Records March 19 Announces New Album – Shares Lead Single & Video “De Facto Blues” – ‘Dream Violence’ Out on Goner Records March 19

Australian singer/songwriter Michael Beach is an architect of a sound that’s both well-built and ramshackle, straightforward and indeterminably complex, out of the norm yet familiar in all the best ways. Today he returns with an epic fourth album that explores the duality of the human condition. It encapsulates human futility, passion, desire, anger, frustration, and the struggle to maintain hope in a somewhat hopeless time. Dream Violence, announced today alongside lead single and video “De Facto Blues”, sees its release March 19 via Goner Records, his first for the label.

“De Facto Blues” is a born-to-lose anthem that Beach describes as “the sound of people totally at their wits end. It was written in growing frustration with leaders failing to lead — instead clinging to a faith in a failing economic system as justification for slow and casual destruction — while trumpeting their own greatness.
