Spaceships and Dreamers Part One
Mirror Piece Entertainment has been busy with christopher ANTON since 2008. The independent entertainment company has had much success with the former Information Society singer turned solo. Mirror Piece Records is now moving forward with a new christopher ANTON music release and an extensive summer US tour.
'Spaceships and Dreamers' is a three part endeavor inspired by what Anton himself describes as “songs about choosing to look at the positive in everything” The aesthetic theme of the release pays homage to the classic science fiction serial films of the 1930s and 40's, such as Flash Gordon, and Buck Rogers.
The first single from the album entitled “Tonight” describes turning a sour relationship into something positive beneath it's metaphors of space travel missions. The song “In Silence” is a nod to the classic freestyle song “Running”, one of Anton's band's (Information Society) hits. In Anton's words “In Silence is, among other things, a deliberate continuation of the dialog of Running...I wanted to take it full circle into what might have happened with the story in a modern context.”
Part one of the 'Spaceships and Dreamers' release is an effort that christopher ANTON promises to be positive themed synth pop. “I'm very much looking at my current music with an intention to help others.” and added “This is about making a positive contribution at this point”
Nick James, who also produced Anton's 2010 release 'Destination: X' has produced the majority of the new album, and Donna Jean returns as a crucial part of the Anton band.
Two of the tracks “Daytime for Dreamers” and “Behind the Sun” are produced by John von Ahlen of Parralox. Daytime for Dreamers features a guest appearance by Houston hip hop artist Drastic Vango. Spaceships is slated for physical CD release in early July 2012, and will first be available here at www.christopheranton.bandcamp.com
