TAKEN FROM FORTHCOMING ALBUM CHRONICLES OF THE KID OUT JUNE 23RD 2023
Ayron Jones is coming for the crown with the release of his explosive new track, ‘The Title’. Out ahead of his highly anticipated second album, Chronicles of The Kid(June 23rd via Big Machine / John Varvatos Records), Jones isn’t shying away from the fight for greatness. The Seattle native’s signature raw vocals and emotive, virtuosic guitar licks are on full display.
Co-produced by Scott Stevens (Shinedown, Halestorm) and MartiFrederiksen (Ozzy Osbourne, Aerosmith), ‘The Title’ is an anthem for all of us that rage on through the darkness to reach the light at the top, odds be damned.
“For a lot of people, the world is a dark place. It feels like a dark room with no windows, no doors, and no way out,” Jones explains. “When we’re faced with uncertainty, our instincts tell us to either take flight or stay and fight. ‘The Title’ is dedicated to those of us who choose to fight. It’s about this seemingly foolish idea of holding on to a sliver of hope that drives our obsession to be great, even when faced with fear of defeat. It’s about winning because you don’t know how to fail.”
Ayron Jones recently toured the UK with platinum-selling rock band Daughtry and will be continuing this run through the US this summer. Ayron will return to the UK to perform 2000trees Festival on July 5th. For more full tour dates visit ayronjonesmusic.com
ABOUT AYRON JONES: In 2021, as the world looked like it was burning down due to the COVID-19 pandemic and global protests sparked by the murder of George Floyd, Seattle-born rockstar Ayron Jones was achieving his dream. That’s when his song ‘Mercy’, from his debut major label record release, Child of the State, hit the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Rock Chart, making Jones one of the few solo Black artists to achieve the feat. Now Jones is set to release the follow-up to that LP, Chronicles of the Kid. As such, he is the happiest he’s ever been, content in himself, confident in his stride. But what is the cost of this clarity? That question permeates his forthcoming release. Indeed, what if the stories you wanted to tell hurt people around you? Would you still tell them? For Jones, the answer is yes. They’re his stories. And his honesty is the fuel that lights his powerful fire. To be human is to get dirty— or, in Jones’ own words, ‘Filthy’. It’s the struggle of being who you are that’s most important. And, as Jones sings on his new LP, he’s here for the crown, ‘The Title’. Hailed by American Songwriter as “one of the biggest names in the genre,” the artist, who has opened for The Rolling Stones and shared stages with groups like Guns N’ Roses and Public Enemy, is the man he’s always wanted to be. He’s given up any façade for the sake of embracing the very real fantasy of what it means to be himself. You can hear all about it on Chronicles of the Kid, out on June 23rd.
