Blue Stahli Releases Chapter 01 of Highly Anticipated Sophomore Album: “The Devil”
December 17, 2013 Detroit, MI – Frenetic multi-genre madman Blue Stahli has released “The Devil: Chapter 01,” featuring a duo of tracks from the highly anticipated sophomore album, available now from FiXT.
Produced by Klayton (Celldweller) and mixed by Joey Sturgis (Asking Alexandria, I See Stars, Attack Attack!), the tracks are a sonic assault of grinding chainsaw crushing guitars with blasting beats and melodic vocal hooks that can only be described as ‘Blue Stahli.’
Preview “Down In Flames” from The Devil (Chapter 01):
“Blue Stahli has always been, and will always be, a multi-genre project ranging from the heavy to the upbeat, to the poppy, to the subdued and to the full on doom. In ‘The Devil’ I’m fusing my love of big dirty beats, electronics, and cinematic sound design with my lust of huge chainsaw guitar riffs. In addition to making music designed to soundtrack your own personal action movie, the main focus is on strong songwriting with catchy, melodic vocals that get firmly stuck in your head. The entire reason Blue Stahli exists is so people have something to connect with, whether it’s something to make you feel powerful, or an enveloping cathartic atmosphere. Both bandage and weapon, Blue Stahli aims to be your escape and your sledgehammer to break through. This one-man show is electronic rock’n’roll for the end of the world.” – Blue Stahli

About Blue Stahli:
The sole member of Blue Stahli, Bret, comes from a background of fetish burlesque troupes, drag queen fronted punk bands and believes that he is visited in his dreams by the ghost of William S. Burroughs.
The music of Blue Stahli is not only meant to be aggressive, artistic, and full of piss’n’vinegar, but also vividly cinematic and wildly epic. Trailers and promos for films such as “The Amazing Spider-Man 2”, “Iron Man 3”, “The Wolverine”, “Star Trek Into Darkness”, “Expendables 2”, “Underworld: Awakening”, “Tron Legacy”, and others all the way to TV shows like “America’s Next Top Model”, “Big Bang Theory”, and MTV’s “The Challenge” feature Blue Stahli to create an exciting musical backdrop. Video games like “Dead Rising 2″ and ads for Victoria’s Secret have also utilized the music of Blue Stahli to inject their productions with rawness and energy. Either that, or a family member was held for ransom. Bret has never been successfully prosecuted, so we may never know.
The pure visceral feeling of Blue Stahli is a getaway drive into oblivion, cutting a jet-black swath down midnight asphalt. Clawing, scratching and tearing through to catharsis with the hyperstylized jagged edge of revenge. Art is a weapon. Use it.
