Collaboration makes all parts of life sweeter, and when you’re like me in a quiet country town, to find that jam can be tricky, so I’m putting out this idea asking for someone to remix, cover or rework my track When It All Bleeds Out / WIABO and in return I’ll cover, remix or rework one of their tracks in return. Welcome to the hermits guide for collaboration. M.
You’ve got 3 weeks to create a remix / rework or cover!
Get the stems and check all of the details over at the PILERATS site NOW.

Mikey – MT WARNING:
One night I was scouring the web for inspiration for the song “When It All Bleeds Out”, I came across a performance by the French mime, Marcel Marceu. The video synced so well with the song and watching this strange old man quietly invoking his art had a huge impact on me and the lyric in the song. I love theatre, I see music as theatre in my own weird way, and I felt by becoming a character hidden with makeup that I could infuse my performance with something deeper, that I would have to dig deeper to bring the earnestness to the forefront. This video is about the eyes, those windows to the soul, and beyond the makeup, the paint, the 80’s diva performance, it’s just a guy searching for his own truth, pleading with his own eyes.

Spoiler alert! Vulture Magazine has an exclusive sneak peek at new video “When It All Bleeds Out”. Check out these behind-the-scenes shots from the set at Vulture Magazine.
“When It All Bleeds Out” is an emotive track with a powerful message. It’s a track that pulls you in from the first kick drum and continues to force you in head first thereafter. We needed a video that assisted that feeling by starting somewhere and finishing somewhere very different. We wanted to create a journey that was completely uncomfortable but one you just couldn’t look away from. I’ve played it way too many times and still can’t look away from Mikey’s performance.
