XIII - (Don't) Leave Me ALone

XIII - (Don't) Leave Me ALone
The day David Bowie died, Dan Sanders didn’t know where to turn. A lifelong musical hero, news of Bowie’s death hit the singer-songwriter hard, and stirred similar emotions to those he’d felt when Kurt Cobain passed away. Upset and feeling lost, Sanders did the only thing that made sense: he grabbed a bottle and, through the tears, made music.

They are songs of despair, loss, hate, rage, isolation and drunken lust, the work of an artist desperate to evolve his craft. And some of them sounded like nothing he’d done before.

As a result, Sanders – best known as guitarist-vocalist for WA Perth alt-rock band Gyroscope – opted not to use his own name, instead giving the fledgling project a name that was entirely its own entity, free of the preconceptions that come with being one of Australia’s best-known frontmen; a name that said everything about him without saying anything at all. He chose XIII.

“I was born on Friday the 13th,” he explains. “XIII is me. And by recording under a different name I found it gave me a different headspace, and more room to explore my dark side perhaps.”
