Lawrence Rothman just released the song + video “Ain’t Afraid Of Dying” featuring Marissa Nadler with Carla Azar from Autolux on drums. Lawrence wrote the Leonard Cohen-esque song the day after they learned their best friend was dying of a rare disease. During their final conversation Lawrence’s friend said, “I might be off on my timing but I ain’t afraid of dying.”
Rothman has 9 alter egos and is often described as the Cindy Sherman of music. The alters are a part of Lawrence and are physically manifested within their videos and live shows. This video features the alter Hooky with a cameo by Marissa Nadler. More info on all alters will reveal itself in the coming months.
Lawrence’s debut full length The Book Of Law is due out October 13th on Downtown/Interscope Records.
