PORTLAND, Ore. - Nov. 16, 2018 - PRLog -- Multi-talented musician, engineer/producer Brian Eaton has released his new album, Hard Bent, today via his indie label, Eatin' Records. The 10-track sophomore release is a follow-up to his 2011 debut LP, Graphic Nature, and took a year to produce. The album features the single, "Defenseless," which was released on November 2.

Hard Bent, a concept album about the Vietnam War, is reminiscent of Eaton's origins with his hard-hitting alternative/industrial metal band, North. It tells the story of the human toll of America's ugliest war through the eyes of a jaded combat medic: a toll measured in lives ruined and destroyed (physically and psychologically). The album follows the vet still grieving decades after living with the trauma of war: through the sheer anger, fear, indifference, depression, insanity, guilt and, perhaps, possible redemption from the madness of it all. He relives the battles fought, the friends lost, families torn apart, and a country manipulated by self-serving politicians. "But dying is easy," he reports in the opener ('Breaking Squelch'), "living with the trauma, that made me hard bent . . . "

"Hard Bent pays homage to all our veterans," Eaton explains. "It is especially dedicated to those of foreign wars who fought and paid the ultimate sacrifice. Never forget that freedom is not free!" Eaton is donating half of all music sales from the new album in the first six months to the top-rated Semper Fi Fund.

Currently based in Portland, Eaton started his career in Chicago where he recorded and produced scores of artists including Frank Catalano, Usurper, Cuttlass, Dave Uhrich and many more for nearly 20 years in his studio. Eaton has released 11 artists on his Eatin' label including T.D. Clark, who toured with Bad Company and Ted Nugent while promoting his debut Eatin' release. Kelly Simms of the Illinois Entertainer called Eaton, "a multi-talented, multi-instrumentalist with multi-tasking abilities," and radio host/DJ Tim Lamping proclaimed "Brian Eaton is a versatile one man show . . . "

Emerging Indie Bands declared Hard Bent "A harrowing collection of ten songs...," Radio Free Brooklyn described it as "Nine Inch Nails meets My Life In The Bush of Ghosts. Way Cool. I'm a fan," and Boston Rock Radio wrote, "a masterfully told story...I applaud Brian for his vast talent."
