Former Deadboy Dax Riggs jettisons his rotating cast of Elephantmen on this, his proper solo debut, and adds a whole host of characters to the proceedings. Making an appearance on We Sing of Only Blood or Love: Matt Sweeney, T.K. Webb, Andy MacLeod to name just a few. The vibe, however, is all Riggs. We Sing is composed of raw, raging rockers that may be a bit more muscular, but they lose nothing of the visceral quality that We Are Night Sky traded in so effortlessly. Riggs never makes it easy, but this time he gives you a bit of a cushion.
