about

On November 27, 2015 Red Pill released the 6 track "Day Drunk EP.". Since then, three bonus tracks from the sessions have been created with production from Paul White, Black Milk, and Illingsworth. We decided to add the new bonus tracks and turn the EP into the "Day Drunk LP." Enjoy

About the Album:
Detroit’s Red Pill is known for his straight-forward, intellectually broken, Bukowski-like realism. The Day Drunk LP starts on top of a clock-ticking, mind-mesmerizing, introductory track from UK producer Paul White. After a philosopher-king monologue, the Zen Buddhist meditative chant begins – “Don’t work, just party - you’ll be alright. Don’t try so hard. Just live your life.” But Pill never leaves you insightfully dumb, with lines like “I think we need a new religion / wound up, bound up in submission / getting lost in the mission / false definitions/ be causing derision / all these people talkin’ competition / all these people talkin’ is division…” And then the record gets green lit.

You may recognize the next Alex Goose-produced track from Silicon Valley. Red Pill lays hardworking slacker ambition bare in one dumb, drunk, punch over the energetic beat. The song is as ludicrously lavish as Scorsese’s “Wolf Of Wall Street.” The album moves into happy-hour heartstrings unfurling and just keeps going. The Day Drunk LP is a record to wash away the feeling when your cash is gone.

Today, Red Pill is on some “love life” shit.
Bottoms up. Day Drunk begins now.

Chris Orrick Detroit, Michigan

Chris Orrick is the patron saint of a poisoned world. The blue-collar MC writes spiteful chants for the permanently scarred, death letters for the forgotten, surly hymns for charcoal lungs. Think Bukowski on an eloquent bender, swapping wine for whiskey, a notepad for a glowing LED screen, the race track for the recording booth. These are anthems for the irate, over-educated and under-valued. ... more
