Canadian singer/songwriter Ritalin Boy harnesses ethereal forces to summon a brigade of demonic soldiers hellbent on enforcing the right to PARTY in the name of the Queen with the rippin’ new single, “The Skeleton Army.”
“The Skeleton Army” is the title track from Ritalin Boy’s forthcoming sophomore album that features an electrifying sonic diversity amongst the six sophisticated arrangements to form a quintessentially Canadian record; the album is an epic testament to Ritalin Boy’s comprehensive sound palette and realist perspective when tackling an array of social phenomena.
When writing the song, Ritalin Boy knew the rhythmically appropriate themes that needed to be included.
“The song is pure rock and roll. No studio gimmickry. Just raw guitar, bass, drums, piano, and vocals, with a sprinkle of Raagini spice, like the great Rolling Stones songs of the ‘60s.”
The rockin’ message of the song is in honour of Queen Elizabeth for giving her Royal Assent to legalize cannabis in Canada, effectively ending a century-long marijuana prohibition.
The Skeleton Army came together under the steady hand and expertise of GRAMMY Award-nominated, JUNO Award-winning producer and owner of Khul Music, Gary “GWIZ” Honess. The album is the collective effort of a few artists through countless hours of musical refinement to fully capture that Ritalin Boy aesthetic.
His latest single, “The Skeleton Army,” is also a love letter to cannabis for its effort in chasing away all the other substances waiting to ruin Ritalin Boy’s life.
