San Diego Heavy Psychedelic Rock artist Zack Oakley to Release “Badlands” via Kommune Records

Zack Oakley - BadlandsSan Diego-based purveyor of Heavy Psychedelic Rock, Prog and Blues, Zack Oakley, will release his debut solo album “Badlands” on September 17, 2021 via his Kommune Records label imprint. Having played for multiple signed bands and toured extensively, this is the sound of an artist turning within and manifesting the bold, dangerous sounds he hears in his head.

From the Artist:
“I am excited to share these songs with the world. The title of the album is “Badlands.” The tunes contain verses and reverberations meant to transport the listener into a parallel universe that looks and sounds like current day California, only without the sunshine and palm trees arranged in perfect variations like the cover of a million postcards and magazines. It is a collage of barefoot sand, highway speed, LSD sunshine and ominous dusk as I see it. I want the listener to experience the sunstroke, see the beauty and feel the dread of this place where time either speeds ahead or stands dangerously still.”
