Jimmy Chamberlin Complex Plot Tour 


03-22-05
.
(press release) Jimmy Chamberlin Complex announces a national tour, performing material from their recently released debut Life Begins Again (Sanctuary).  Jimmy Chamberlin is looking forward to taking the Complex on the road again. Chamberlin says, “The Complex is about the love of music. “

The band on all tour dates includes Jimmy Chamberlin (drums); Billy Mohler (Bass, Vocals); Sean Woolstenhulme (Guitar, Vocals) and Adam Benjamin (Fender Rhodes). 

Ranging from the sweet and lush (the ethereal “Loki Cat”) to moody and mean (“Cranes of Prey”), Life Begins Again is the brainchild of Jimmy Chamberlin and friend, colleague and multi-instrumentalist Billy Mohler, an L.A.-based songwriter who has worked with everyone from Macy Gray to Fred Durst. 

All of the lyrics on Life Begins Again were written by Chamberlin (with the exception of “Lullabye” written by Mohler and Becca Popkin), who makes his debut as a lyricist.  While Mohler sings  "Newerwaves," ex-Catherine Wheel front man Rob Dickinson is the voice behind the album’s title track and "Love Is Real," while Rock n’ Roll Hall of Famer Bill Medley (one-half of the Righteous Brothers) takes the mic on "Lullabye.”  Pumpkin and Zwan band mate Billy Corgan teams up with Chamberlin for "Loki Cat.” 

The album’s lyrical concept, Chamberlin says, is freedom of the spirit: “I think that love and spirituality - and this cosmic vibration that runs through everybody - is a real thing.  For me, music is a testament that if you acknowledge the vibrations going on around you, it’s possible to reproduce that in to an art form. To me, this CD is an acknowledgement of the natural vibrations running through me.  It was just a period of my life where I was able to channel those into music because I was given the freedom to do so.”
