THE L.I.F.E. PROJECT, the formidable musical partnership of Grammy-nominated Stone Sour guitarist, Josh Rand, and co-songwriter & vocalist Casandra Carson, have dropped their debut, self-titled EP last Friday.

The 5 track collection can be streamed in full here with signed editions of CD and vinyl formats available exclusively through the bands’ webstore.

In celebration of the release, the duo have also released a lyric video for their track Purgatory which can be accessed via the link below;

Speaking about the release of his latest musical endeavour, Josh Rand tells us,

Words cannot express how gratifying it is to put this EP out at this stage in my career. To get to this point, it’s been a long road with many ups and downs over the course of the last year and a half. For me, this EP represents a vision. A standard in quality and a journey about never compromising one’s art. 

Writing Purgatory’, I knew that I wanted to create something that sounded epic. I felt the best way to approach that was to write at a slower tempo to be able to fatten up the sonics of all the instruments and to write the song in harmonic minor.

Casandra Carson adds,

I’m so excited to finally unleash this EP to the world! I’m so proud of what Josh and I have created together and built over the past year, and so thankful that I had the opportunity to be a part of this project.

The lyrics I wrote for ‘Purgatory’ are about that internal push and pull when a person is in a toxic relationship, and how it’s sometimes hard to let go and just walk away even when they know it’s the right thing to do.”
