GODHEAD — Jason C. Miller (vocals, guitars), Michael Miller (guitars), Ullrich Hepperlin (bass, programming) and Ty Smith (drums) — released its sixth studio album, "At The Edge Of The World", on October 7, 2008 via Driven Music Group (distribution by Ryko/Warner Music Group), the label owned by ex-KORN guitarist Brian "Head" Welch and music execs Greg Shanaberger and Mark Nawara.
The CD — produced by bassist Ullrich Hepperlin — features 13 songs and five bonus remixes courtesy of Assemblage 23, Sebastian Komor (ICON OF COIL), Curse Mackey (PIGFACE, EVIL MOTHERS), Shok (MY LIFE WITH THE THRILL KILL KULT) and Fat and Acid (AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE).
"When I was writing 'Stay Back'," explained singer/guitarist Jason C. Miller, "I thought about all the times people push each other away in relationships, maybe from clashing ideals or just being afraid of something good. I assumed the role of the person who knows he's a spoiler, but has enough morality left to warn the other person."
He continued about the album's overall writing process, "We really reconnected with the influences that inspired us to write music, like THE CURE, BLACK SABBATH, BAUHAUS, PINK FLOYD, RADIOHEAD, DAVID BOWIE, DEPECHE MODE and even RUSH. It's something I always try to do, but don't always succeed. It's not the radio single that makes you a true fan of a band, it's those interesting tracks that you discover late at night sitting in your room. And I try to ignore modern music trends at all costs. Why become a clone of what's popular now only to be ignored tomorrow? Stick to your own sound and your audience will find you, and they will stay with you for the rest of your life."
In addition to fronting GODHEAD, Miller is an accomplished actor (most recently seen in an ad campaign for Comedy Central, where he portrayed "Nosferatu") and voice-over artist, devout Buddhist, trains in Kung Fu and is a loyal supporter of The Sogan Foundation, a charity which raises funds for The Tibetan Institute for Science and Technology (TIST) in Golok, Tibet. He has provided voices for over 25 different anime shows, some of which have been recorded at the recording studio he owns, Central Command Studios.
