At 9 pm ET /6 pm PT/ 3 am Saturday morning in Amsterdam, Joe Deninzon & Stratospheerius’ “Game of Chicken” will be live on all streaming media, including YouTube at Joe will be on hand, answering fan questions and reading everyone’s comments. 

The new single and video, “Game of Chicken” was recorded live during Joe Deninzon & Stratospheerius’ performance at Progstock Festival, October 13, 2019 at Union County Performing Arts Center. Rahway, NJ.

As seen in the classic Vin Diesel/Paul Walker movie, “Fast and Furious,” the “game of chicken” is a game in which two drivers drive towards each other on a collision course: one must swerve, or both may die in the crash.  But if one driver swerves and the other does not, the one who swerved will be called a “chicken,” or a coward.

Joe Deninzon says: “I thought about how dysfunctional our society is, how we continue to kick the can down the road for future generations to clean up our mess, how we scream over each other in our online media echo chambers and refuse to listen to differing opinions. Our planet is on the verge of destruction, and we are too busy trying to destroy each other instead of coming together to try to solve our problems.”

This is the first single from Stratospheerius’ upcoming CD/DVD, “Behind the Curtain: Live at Progstock” due out in May 2022 on Melodic Revolution Records. Much more to come…
