RELEVANT SECURES AMERICAN SONGWRITER IN SUPPORT OF ALBUM “UNDER THE WOLF MOON”
Def Leppard’s Rick Allen and Wife Lauren Monroe Spread “Big Love” with ‘Under the Wolf Moon’
Everybody’s fine living in anger / From sunset to dawn they’re takin it home / And the fields on fire to wake up the ghosts / And our hearts know why freedom is gone. “Big Love” sets the scenic path of Lauren Monroe’s Under the Wolf Moon (Cherry Bomb Records). Originally written during the presidential election in 2016, “Big Love” rooted the album, also featuring Monroe’s husband Def Leppard drummer Rick Allen on all 11 tracks, and its narrative of empowerment and enlightenment through darker times.
“It really highlighted someone’s divisiveness, and the division in America that was always there, but it was brought to the surface,” says Monroe. “I was really moved to write the song as a reaction based on my own experience, and that what people really need is love. When people are angry they’re afraid, and love seems to be the answer.”
For Monroe and Allen, who also founded the Project-Resiliency’s Raven Drum Foundation Project Resiliency.Org, Under the Wolf Moon penetrates all challenges of life, a restorative reprieve of reflections on “Lie” to uplifting “Get Happy” or “Give,” soothing passages of “Joshua” through “River of Rain” and closing “Now.”
