God Lives Underwater Vocalist David Reilly Dies
God Lives Underwater was established in 1995 and was quickly signed to Rick Rubin’s American Recordings. The group had the radio hit, “From Your Mouth” from their 1998 Interscope/1500 Release, Life In The So-Called Space Age, which was heralded as a cross between Depeche Mode and Nine Inch Nails.
Corporate Punishment Records released David's first and only solo recording, the EP Inside in 2004. Recently, David signed with Ruff Nation/Sony who were slated to release his debut full length, How Humans Rx, in early 2006. Unfortunately this will never happen, which might be one of the biggest travesties of all. Some of these recordings can be found on his Myspace site at www.myspace.com/cprdavidreilly
Corporate Punishment President, Thom Hazaert, (affectionately dubbed “the Rooster” by Reilly) also spent a big chunk of the past few years serving as Reilly’s manager, most recently serving as a management and creative consultant.
“I am honored and humbled to have had the chance to work with someone like him, an amazing artist and visionary, who in my eyes will always be one of the most talented people to ever walk the Earth,” says Hazaert. “David will remain forever in our hearts and will be sorely missed by everyone at CPR.”
Reilly had spent much time in recent years speaking out about his longtime bout with substance abuse.
