Aaron Semer is celebrating the release of his new album "Love Amidst Collapse" on Thursday December 10 at Conor Byrne Pub with good friends and collaborators Michael Wohl and Coyote.
On his new album, "Love Amidst Collapse," Aaron Semer strips his music down to the bare essentials – acoustic guitars, voice, some basic percussion, and a few shredding solos for good measure. This is a concept album loosely based around the collapse of society as we know it, and how we would go about moving forward after the fall. On a personal basis, it is a reset button – an attempt for Semer to get back to basics as a songwriter, and to address his own fears about the decline and possible collapse of America. "Songs are stories, stories are life," he says. "When you give up on the failing stories you have been telling yourselves as a society, what replaces them?"
Hopefully, songs like these.
