The Behaviour is a gothic inspired post-alternative rock group created by Der Baron M. Kilpatric in 2020. The new solo project has completed recording its debut album, A Sin Dance, which was released on September 15th, 2023 across all streaming platforms. The album was entirely written, arranged, and performed by Kilpatric himself. While currently located in New England, this album culminated from his time residing in Colorado and the Midwest while marinating in the sounds of Jeff Buckley, Soundgarden, Slint, Killing Joke, Pink Floyd, Leonard Cohen, my bloody valentine, David Bowie, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, and countless others.
After spending over 20 years of his prolific career contributing to writing, recording, and/or performing as the drummer for such groups as Black Light Burns, The Esoteric, Seaspin, Kylesa, F-Minus, Crisis, and Today is the Day, to name a few, Kilpatric has stepped forward to present this mesmerizing and affecting creation. The Behaviour is brought to life with a vision of artistic integrity, passion, and substance through decades of experience and intuition.
This coming collection of songs has been many years in the making. After stepping away from the music industry for several years to refocus and evolve other areas of his life, Kilpatric has not missed a beat. He has created The Behaviour as a perfect and effective representation of the sounds, melodies, and noises heard in his head and ringing in his ears for quite some time. While being a catharsis, purging, and execution of shadow work in its purest form of expression, this record is merely a prologue. The music is dark and melancholic on the surface, yet underneath the richly textured layers are introspective messages of redemption, healing, and renewal. It expresses the true essence of finding one's self in his/her sober reflection and through the interpersonal relationships of self, others, and environment.
The Behaviour is a medicine for melancholy, a remedy for repressed emotion, an enlightenment for evolving senses.
