Clueless Ruler

Mixing themes about hard-fought forgiveness, betrayal by authority, revenge, and the things we tell ourselves as it all falls apart, hear why Loudnezz Magazine called Clueless Ruler one of the "Top Artists to Watch".

Our debut EP includes "Your Time Is Up" - a ticking countdown for failed leaders; "Misfit" - a song about defiance and proudly not fitting in; "Cynic" - a riff-driven assault documenting "a sunset smile when all the while the rain gets nearer"; "We Are Coming", which puts authority on notice: "The time has come to take things back!" as it switches between 6/4 and 4/4 time signatures; "Forgive Me" slows things just a little, fusing the slightest hint of a calypso beat with hard driving rock guitars in a plaintiff entreaty for forgiveness after yet another relationship mis-step; and lastly, "FnB" - a full-out explosion of anger, the kind we feel when we're trying to convince ourselves it's all the other party's fault...but ends with damning realization as the self-delusion crumbles: "But I love you..."

Goodbye Facebook, Hello Clueless Ruler Page! 

We've long been ambivalent about Clueless Ruler even appearing on Facebook - we're not fans of the platform, we don't have personal accounts on it, and we've long considered shutting it down. Today is that day - we've finally decided to pull the plug on the band's Facebook page.

Instead, we're moving the discussion here.

We'll be posting info on our upcoming album soon (yes, I know we've been talking about the "upcoming album" for years - I promise you it's not vaporware, it's just taking a lot of time and has been competing with a ton of other priorities). 

In the meantime, we're finishing some work on a song for Paul McGrannite, who provided the lyrics around which we're writing and recording the music. Stay tuned!

And thank you, as always, for your interest and support of Clueless Ruler - we're deeply grateful!
