TASTE “I AM GOD”
- Spectacular post-apocalyptic video launched
- Drummer Virgil Donati confirmed to guest
- Good Friday, Ding Dong Lounge
Reformed ’70s rock legends TASTE will launch I Am God, the lead single and video to their forthcoming album, Life On Earth, at Melbourne’s Ding Dong Lounge on Good Friday, March 25.
This exclusive hometown performance will make history with the return of original member Virgil Donati, one of the most revered drummers working in America today, for the first time in 40 years.
“TASTE was the band that set me on the rock’n’roll road as a teenager back in 1975,” Virgil said from his home in Los Angeles. “Ken Murdoch, Joey Amenta and Michael Tortoni are my musical brothers and I can’t wait to get back on stage to play some of the songs that started this incredible journey.”
The Ding Dong audience will witness the unveiling of Clayton Jacobson’s explosive video to I Am God: a stunning post-apocalyptic vision of mechanical spiders stalking the havoc of a world in flames as the band unleashes its prog-metal might in the ruins.
Life on Earth was recorded in 2015 with new drummer Damian Corniola, who will also perform on the night, in a set covering the breadth of TASTE’s remarkable history. Remastered versions of their classic ’70s albums Tickle Your Fancy and Knights of Love are available on iTunes now.
Don’t miss this historic evening of reunion, Armageddon and blistering virtuosic rock with special guests Waleed Aly’s band Robot Child at Ding Dong Lounge, 18 Market Lane, Melbourne, on Good Friday, March 25.
Life On Earth is out late May.
