Keeping up with our exciting premiere Thursday, Australian singer/songwriter Thomas Keating is teaming up with VENTS for the release of his new single “Toward the Cause” available digitally on May 31. Considered a hero of alt-country and Australian rock, Keating recorded “Toward the Cause”—his fourth single coming on the heels of early 2019’s “Today I’m Staying Home”–at the A Sharp recording studio in Sydney. Produced by Gordon Burke, the song features Keating’s spirited vocals over a driving rhythm section. Joining Keating are former Good Counsel bandmates Mitchell Crum (bass) and David Pearce (drums).
Says Thomas: “I wanted to deliver a track that captured the power of fighting back. I am always working on the mix of the right musical balance to emphasize the words in a way I feel best captures the feeling in the lyrics. Toward The Cause is about the mental battles we go through in trying to follow our own path, whatever that might be for me or anyone else. It is possibly the closest I have gotten to realizing my vision creatively, and I am thrilled to be putting this song out.”
