“Thematically [‘Heavy Meta’] stems from frustration with humanity and myself that began about three years ago when most of these songs were written. For the first time, I went within and faced a lot of things. It was a dark period and I was living in Philly. The record talks about a stalker, dead love, domestication, medication of the masses, the cycle of bad parenting, the struggle of pursuing art, self-empowerment, illusion, and personal frustration with the state of culture, music, food, etc. This record is someone being rattled out of their complacency and maybe it can do the same for another.” —Ron Gallo, via NoiseTrade

“Please Yourself” is from Ron Gallo’s HEAVY META LP, which was released in February of 2017 via New West Records.
