Watch “Atlas Shrugged” Here:
“Atlas Shrugged” was the first song of the fresh Woyote lineup. It was inspired by the state of the world and book turned movie also called “Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, though the only influence the book had on the song was the title itself. Atlas is the God who holds the world on his shoulders. No one seemed to notice or care is commenting on the constant state of change the humans and the world they live in go through, and the bewilderment or apathy that seems to accompany these changes. It’s a call to self awareness as the means to truly influence the world for positive change.
Belgium based Hard Rock outfit Woyote makes their debut this year kicking it off with their debut single “Atlas Shrugged” June 24th. Woyote formed by producer, songwriter, and guitarist Mikey Doling (Channel Zero, Soulfy, and the founding member and guitarist of SNOT) is the newest edition to his arsenal of musical projects that he is unleashing to the world. With multiple Gold Records, song writing credits, and world tours under Doling’s belt he’s proven once again that his consistent songwriting capabilities have birthed a new project that is unique, original, and powerful. Doling and Guitarist Jari De Roover began writing music at the end of 2019. Feeling energized on what they were creating they decided to recruit Guitarist Quentin Cornet, Bassist Sebastiaan Verhoeven, and Drummer Charles Degolla. Once they had a solid lineup of musical veterans, the quest for a singer began. After having a brief stint with a vocalist Doling realized that they needed someone that had the tone and range that he was looking for. Doling reached out to Aaron Nordstrom of Gemini Syndrome to work on a few tracks to see what they could come up with, and both artists knew right away that the magic was there. The two have known each other for years as Doling produced Gemini Syndrome in the past and maintained a friendship for over the last 12 years. Doling and Nordstrom are both extremely happy with how this musically all came together as they’ve always wanted to work together….and now the time has finally come. Doling and Norsdstrom started working with producer Chris Collier (Korn, Prong, and more). Doling being a songwriter and producer himself on this project brought a lot of the vocal melodies, lyrics, songwriting, and producing to the table. “Mikey has a signature sound of his own” says Nordstrom about Doling’s guitar style.“ Just like Dime or Eddie Van Halen you know who it is right out of the gate.” Nordstrom who has fronted Gemini Syndrome since day one and currently still does says that he intends on writing as much music as he can while he is still on this earth. “You never know when your time is up so I plan on doing as much as I can, and I am very excited about being a part of Woyote!” says the singer. While most bands today tend to write towards the trends of “Radio and Popularity” Doling promises that you will get music that comes straight from the heart with Woyote. “We are not here to write what’s already been done.” “We are here to deliver pure honest and organic Rock & Roll, and you will always get that with Woyote” says Doling. “ We plan on giving as much music to this beautiful yet unforgiving universe, and we are just getting started!” Woyote has begun rehearsals in Durbuy Belgium where they are collectively plotting full on world domination with their signature menacing art that will penetrate the Rock and Roll world!!
