West Chicago Metal Industrial project DERISION CULT, led by multi-instrumentalist Dave McAnally is set to release their newest studio album, Charlatans Inc., on September 14, 2021. Charlatans Inc. is a visceral take on media manipulation and provocation in America. With citizens producing more data about themselves, and media and big tech getting better and better at extracting and refining that data, with all of us plugged into an over-stimulated digital world, buyers need be beware.
“I was driven to use this album as a platform to say something about the role consumerism played in provoking outrage and anxiety in the last year. The media doesn’t want you to think, they want you to feel. But as long as we can identify those things when we see them, we become immune and find real peace and harmony.
This is not a political album. It’s about media and the importance to filter signals and understand when you’re being marketed to. More than ever, your beliefs, your politics and your passions are all up for sale. Buyers beware.”
Track List: 1. The Great Reset 2. Call a Man God 3. Amplify 4. Worlds Collide 5. This is Control 6. Charlatans 7. View from the Cross 8. I・VI・MMXXI
