Last we heard from Jonny Craig, he was writing a letter to himself. Now there’s a new song from his solo material for the world to hear, aptly titled “Rhythm to my Soul (Heroin)”. He is slated to release a seven song EP as a solo artist, although further details are still unknown at this time.
The song is clever (or stupid, depending on your view of drug abuse) as Jonny plays on his own drug addiction and uses “heroin” as a metaphor for a woman (“heroine”). The former Dance Gavin Dance singer has a history of drug problems, and also once ran a huge internet scam that Jack from Absolute Punk investigated. Basically? If he was Lou Reed, I’d give him a pass on it, but being Jonny Craig… it’s an interesting thing to hear him do lyrically as a solo artist.

But, now that we've cleared that up and you called your high school janitor, know that I quit being a janitor to pursue writing about music. So here I am, and here you are, and hey how are you?
