Blitzkid – Mr. Sardonicus
“When we approached the writing of Apparitional we were at a place where we felt a desire to touch base with our more fundamental punk roots.” Says vocalist/bassist Argyle Goolsby. “On our last album Five Cellars Below we explored our more fringe musical influences rather than relying solely on our prior albums comfort zones. Doing so gave us a deeper perspective of what propelled Blitzkid. On Apparitional we took that broadening of our sound and brought back much of the urgency and upbeat punk rock melody that our earliest songs conveyed. The results are truly the most resolved and balanced that Blitzkid have ever sounded as a band.”
Argyle Goolsby on Mr. Sardonicus:
“This song was borne out of time of immense inspiration. I can’t categorize how i was feeling outside of simply saying there was an undefined longing and a feeling of déjà vu guiding its creation. We were very happy to have our friend Doyle Wolfgang Von Franknenstein (formerly of THE MISFITS) play accompanying guitar on this track. There is an ethereal whimsical sadness to this song that needed to be translated and I feel like Doyle’s howling and supplicating guitars captured this perfectly.”
