Christopher The Conquered I'm Giving Up On Rock & Roll on LP + Download w/ Bonus Tracks

Christopher the Conquered wants you to read between the lines. That said, he's got a damn good reason for naming his full-length debut album, I'm Giving Up On Rock & Roll (recorded at Memphis' legendary Ardent Studios). "I'm not referring to music," he explains. "It's the idea of Rock & Roll as a metaphor for misrepresenting yourself. Living behind a mask or a façade is not a healthy way to live. That's what I'm giving up on. People love Rock & Roll, and I love Rock & Roll. However, the person I am onstage is also the person I am offstage."

It's this sort of pure honesty that defines the album's 9 tracks, and it's also why Christopher made some serious waves in 2015. The Iowa singer, songwriter, and performer has crafted a declaratory musical statement that's impossible to ignore. In the summer of 2015, he shared the stage with Natalie Prass and handed her an early copy of I'm Giving Up On Rock & Roll. She in turn passed it on to Ryan Adams who took to Twitter and Instagram calling the album, "Crazy and incredible." Soon after, Christopher landed on the front page of Reddit and in Billboard as the title track and single "I'm Giving Up On Rock & Roll" quickly passed 60,000 plays on Soundcloud. This properly set the stage for the album's 2016 release.

"I wanted this to be a cohesive experience that takes listeners on a journey," he adds. "This album strips everything back; this is me." Throughout the record, Christopher has architected a sound that's both poetically ponderous and theatrically bombastic. Now he's officially sharing it.
