It’s been a very busy year with the release of the book, Bad Blood – A Life Without Consequence, along with two full-length albums, GRAY/SCALE, and the soundtrack to the book, Bad Blood. While unplanned, two new songs happened: a Christmas song, College Radio Christmas Eve. A song commemorating a very somber Christmas eve many (MANY) years ago when late one night I discovered a faint college radio station playing alternative and modern rock Christmas and holiday songs. I instantly didn’t feel so alone. The other song, Winter Chill, An introspective and contemplative ambient-tinged instrumental for the holidays and winter.
Both songs are available on our Christmas EP along with Memories Drift (It’s Christmas), which was first released in 2007. Also included is the unreleased instrumental version of Memories Drift.
We have also released several single tracks and mini-extended plays as the year draws to an end.
The Bad Blood book and album will be available on January 1, 2021.
We’re wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays for all!

Bad Blood – A Life Without Consequence is the memoir by David B. Roundsley recounting his 13-year search for his birth parents and his DNA origins. Accompanying the book will be Munich Syndrome’s 11th album, Bad Blood! Written during and about search and journey, the album is a soundtrack / curated listening experience that takes a stylistic shift into more acoustic territory. Leaning towards a David Lynch soundtrack feel in places the album features new compositions as well as some previous Munich Syndrome tracks that were re-recorded, remixed and reconfigured to fit the overall tone of the album.

While work continues on the next Munich Syndrome album “X”, the world became a different place. Over the past three years we’ve been experimenting in the studio with different arrangements, instruments, and styles.
GRAY/SCALE is our “Low” or “Remain in Light”, if you will. Pushing out of our comfort zone, exploring new textures, and moods. This release features ambient, electronica, and other sonic explorations. More somber and introspective than our previous release. GRAY/SCALE is the sister-album to Sensual Ambience, 15 years on.
Where Sensual Ambience was more about the physical world, GRAY/SCALE is more about the metaphysical world.
This will be a digital-only release, available from BandCamp, CD Baby, Amazon, Apple Music, iTunes, Google, as well as all major streaming services.
Initially slated to be an EP (Extended Play) we have opted to go in with a full album:
In a Lonely Place
Ghosts (Part 1)
A Corner in Time
Ghosts (Part 2)
Ghosts (Part 3)
