Californian hard rocker Thadeus Gonzalez release a music video for the new single »Ripe« taken from his new studio album, »Opposite Faces«, out this Friday, July 16th, 2021 via Rebel Waves Records.

About »Ripe«, Thadeus says: “When I started writing the lyrics for »Ripe«, I really didn’t have a meaning or direction in mind. As I worked through it, I began contemplating being in the right place, at the right time and how fast things could come and go… you could lose good things at any moment.”

Thadeus Gonzalez is a singer, songwriter, and musician from Oakland California. While fronting a local rock band Electric Sister nearly ten years ago, he caught international critical attention and was called “a front man to watch” with “an arena looking and sounding attitude”. After launching a solo career in 2014, his reputation for genre blending was solidified. His independently-released debut record, »Utopian Society«, earned reviews like “…this musician can play and sing with the best of them recording today”. »Silver Inside« was released via Spectra Music in 2018, and kicked off nearly two years of coast-to-coast and international touring. Thadeus has opened for Kiss, Mötley Crüe, Slash, and Bon Jovi. His third record, »Opposite Faces«, will be released on July 16th, 2021 via Rebel Waves Records.

»Opposite Faces« weaves together loud and razor-edged riffing, a straightforward attitude, alongside an alt-punk flare and a gift for singalong-ready hooks. The pervading tension, his emotional commitment and inner fire never let go of the listener, offering a refreshing take on modern hard rock and a compelling journey into the world of one of the US most inspiring rockers. »Opposite Faces« was recorded at Sonic Rooms Studios, in Livermore, CA, produced by Tim Narducci (The Watchers).
