Johnny O’Neil unveils video for new single “Red Suns In The Sky”
Minnesota, USA rocker Johnny O’Neil has unveiled a video for his third single “Red Suns In The Sky” from his debut solo album Truth Or Dare, which was released back on January 21, 2021.
Sleaze Roxx stated the following in its review of Truth Or Dare:
“Dare Force — the name rang a bell but I couldn’t quite put my finger on it. Eventually, I put two and two together. Sleaze Roxx had done a concert review two years ago that included the veteran Minnesota band who had been around by that point for more than 30 years. Earlier this year, Sleaze Roxx had premiered the debut video for the new group A Rising Force, which consisted of three former Dare Force members (bassist Brian Lorenson, drummer Lane Allen and guitarist Leni DiMancari) along with singer Mark Westlund. A little later this year, Johnny O’Neil‘s debut solo album Truth Or Darearrived out of the blue at the Sleaze Roxx headquarters and I eventually learned that the singer had branched out on his own while his former bandmates got a new lead vocalist. As it turns out, O’Neil must control the Dare Force Facebook pagebecause it is still active but mainly with stuff about his debut solo album.
I must say that I was pleasantly surprised with how good that O’Neil‘s debut album is. Given that I have also been digging A Rising Force‘s debut single, I must say that I am curious to see what Dare Force sounded like but that’s for another day. As I first listened to Truth Or Dare and that was before I made the Dare Force link for O’Neil, I could tell that this was not the singer’s first rodeo so to speak. Clearly, O’Neil had been playing for some time because the songs on Truth Or Dare had a certain maturity to them. I think what stood out the most for me was how O’Neil allowed the songs to breathe by not overplaying on them and really letting the various notes sink in when you listen to them. There’s no doubt that you feel some emotions when listening to Truth Or Dare.”
