“Musically, I’m trying to mimic the sounds of the Deep South with this multi-dimensional weirdness. I can slow it down to a point where it’s like ‘Robert Johnson on Thorazine’. Essentially, this is my version of where I’m from. It’s the dark side of the Deep South.”

“…pretty damn badass…”

Brother Dege, the GRAMMY Award-nominated guitarist, singer and songwriter who merges his affinity for ’70s era rock bands and Southern psych, releases a second track, and video, from his forthcoming album Aurora (March 15, Prophecy Productions), with today’s arrival of “The Devil You Know”.


“‘The Devil You Know’ is a break-up song about not wanting to be alone – alone with one’s self after getting dumped, which is the lonely, devilish place that we all know,” Dege shares. “At this point in my life, I don’t like to be alone. It’s an uncomfortable place for me – I feel crazy. Sounds pathetic, I know, but I’m happiest when I’m connecting with another human being or creating art or therapeutic reasons – just like the giant sand mandala in the video. All art is temporary, like relationships and everything else. It all comes and goes.”


Dege previously released the track “Where the Black Flowers Grow,” and its accompanying video, which can be seen here:


On the themes behind the new album, Dege adds: “It definitely deals with love, psychosis, and the dysfunctions that get repeated within these relationships and patterns of myself. I thought of it as an ouroboros—which is a snake that eats its own tail. In a relationship, you are swallowing your own tail and tail of your partner, because you blame them for some of it too. The Aurora resembles the spectral light of falling in love.”


Aurora is available for pre-order now (http://lnk.spkr.media/aurora), with the collection released as a Gatefold LP on both black vinyl and a limited-edition marbled black and gold vinyl, as well as CD and digital.


After quietly generating tens of millions of streams, earning widespread acclaim, and carving out a corner in pop culture history with a co-sign by none other than Quentin Tarantino, the Louisiana-based guitarist and singer Dege Legg pulls everyone into this lush musical world. An undercurrent of bluesy distortion tosses and turns in tectonic motion beneath bold hooks as his love for seventies and eighties rock bands funnels into a twisted 21st century take on Southern rock. He emerges out of this smoke with a vision without comparison, bringing grit and gusto in equal measure.
