Mickey Avalon has released a new video for the title track from his new EP, “I Get Even”, online at this location. The video documents all the behind the scenes insanity from Mickey’s recent tours of both Canada and Australia. “I Get Even’ was released through Mickey Avalon’s own label Rag Top Records. The album features a collaboration with by Paul Oakenfold on the track “Hollywood”.
“The creative process is always different. I rarely remember the specifics from song to song. Not because I’m fucked up, but it’s just not something that I have a technique for,” remembers Mickey Avalon. “Sometimes the beat comes first, and sometimes it’s the lyrics. I usually don’t have much to do with the music, but with this one I actually brought in the sample and pretty much produced it. The lyrics just came out, while listening to it. The meaning is pretty self-explanatory, but as far as it being aimed at any one person or thing in particular; it wasn’t. It was more about me just venting.”
Mickey Avalon’s “I Get Even” EP is another sordid tale of rock ‘n’ roll debauchery that could only come from Hollywood’s most notorious emcee. The effort will feature five previously unreleased tracks that capture Avalon’s intense rhymes and raw honesty on tape for the world to hear. Using his music as an outlet to peel back the curtain on excessive lifestyle, is a trademark of Avalon’s unique sound. Filled with excess and exploding with sexual energy, Avalon’s music embraces decadence and celebrates its hedonistic glory.
