Words cannot express how excited we are to be bringing you the world premiere of “Dorian Gray,” a brand new song off of William Control’s Noir, which hits stores June 8th courtesy of Victory Records.

For those of you unfamiliar with William Control, I’ll let the man himself fill you in:

The smoke clears and in whispering waves of self-mutilation I can see the dark sky fall to pieces.
The world is sometimes too heavy to breath and the dead surround me like an ocean.
I can’t recognize the reflection looking back through the mirror.
I only grasp the concept of what it’s like to walk through life with a stranger holding a knife to my neck.
The empty shell of a shattered boy I know possess is my new skin.
Pain is my only horizon, hate, is my only form of flattery, ugly is the world around me and nowhere
beyond the infinite infrastructure of the eternal lonely soul can my blackened heart be found.
If you want a glimpse of torment and bittersweet visions delight, I’ll
gladly cut my head off so you can look down the hole.
Nothing there will bring the joyful bliss you crave.
Drinking lighter fluid to start a fire inside my guts, I am on a slow painful ride
through the underbelly of hell and I wont mind if this is where we say goodbye and go our separate ways.

I am inside of you.
Living and breathing.

I am William Control.

Now as I said, William’s newest album Noir hits stores in June and until now, only one other song has been made public [it can be streamed on his Myspace page], but thanks to the kind at Victory Records we are able to bring you this dark electronica track about the main character from Oscar Wilde’s timeless book. As always, if you like what hear, PLEASE support the artist and BUY THE MUSIC.
