Dark cabaret artist Aurelio Voltaire returns to Projekt Records for a passionate collection of songs about love gained and love lost.
His 11th studio album resulted from a tumultuous three- month relationship; in between his hectic touring schedule Voltaire found himself writing heart- wrenching songs brimming with anguish, regret and yearning.
Heart-Shaped Wound goes past an 8.9 on the heartbreak scale.
Throughout his 20-year career Voltaire has danced on the dark side with a sardonic smile. He’s best known for 1999’s “When you’re Evil,” a jaunty celebration of naughtiness befitting a Disney villain. Also a classic, “Brains!” recounts an evil meteor hungry for human brains and was featured on America’s ‘The Cartoon Network’s The Grim Adventures of Billy and Mandy. With a reputation for macabre, tongue-in-cheek songs, every once in a while someone comes along and breaks his heart, and the result is an album of heart-wrenching genre-defying musical storytelling.
Often sarcastic, sometimes serious, always uniquely…
