Kevin Pearce is releasing his new album 'Dynamite' which also sees a graphic novel of the same name that Pearce has written.
The lyrics to the album are embedded in the story of the graphic novel entwining the two as a Multi-Media release.
The character 'Dynamite' exists in both song and image form to tell the story of a man who's compassion is as forefront as his vengeance and lack of concern for social consequence, which are fuelled by his reaction to the unbalanced society he finds himself living in.
The new record also sees a remarkable and enigmatic vocal collaboration with Olly Knights ( of Turin Brakes ) and Tom Mcrae in the track 'Bedlam' .
It was recorded at Pearce's Shire Studio in Mistley, Essex, and mastered by Sheffield's Dean Honer ( Eccentronic Research Council, I Monster, Add N to X )
