Chris Vrenna’s tweaker Debuts New Video

Noisecreep debuted the new video today from tweaker for their song “getting through many a bad night” off their latest album call the time eternity (Metropolis Records). It can be seen at: http://www.noisecreep.com/2012/11/13/tweaker-getting-through-many-a-bad-night-video/

Born of a partnership between Grammy-winning songwriter, composer, drummer, producer Chris Vrenna (Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson) and programmer/guitarist Jesse Hall, Vrenna refers to tweaker as his “passion project”, explaining “I’ve been fortunate enough to have been overly busy in the last several years and had to repeatedly back-burner the new record.”

Since its late-October release, call the time eternity has garnered critically acclaim from critics everywhere. 303 Magazine raved “A stunning swirl of emotional explication singed with the musical delicacy that is tweaker’s signature, Call the Time Eternity confirms that Vrenna’s individual work outshines some of his work with more well-known bands.” Ground Control Magazine claimed “Vrenna and his production style may indeed be the only things about the goth renaissance which have aged well over the last fifteen years. Call The Time Eternity is proof that there is still life after goth.” And COMA Music Magazine perhaps said it best and most simply, stating “the album is an incredibly well crafted composition.”

Garnering a name for himself in the early days of Nine Inch Nails, Chris Vrenna added his indelible mark into the industrial and underground music scene by producing or co-producing various artists including Marilyn Manson, Rasputina, Cold, providing remixes for U2, Nelly Furtado, and Rammstein, among many others, and soundtrack work. In 2001, for example, Vrenna composed the dark, eerie instrumental soundtrack of the icon-breaking American McGee’s Alice. And it was also in 2001 that Vrenna unveiled his tweaker project. Now, he’s ready to unleash it again… Chris explains about the album and its title, “I have gone through several serious losses or ‘goodbyes’ over the last several years…the passing of my father, a bitter divorce, leaving Manson. And my close friends have all had similar experiences. Whether positive or negative, good or bad, happy or sad, final ‘goodbyes’ are always difficult and bring up many conflicting emotions. call the time eternity explores all of those things.
