Controller – “Separator”

But the stigma is so great many suffer in silence. If each of us shares the message #IWILLLISTEN, our friends will be more comfortable asking for help. Learn more at

New Single from “Controller” created for the #IWILLLISTEN Album.

Location: NYC

Future: More music and NYC shows coming soon.

[MP3] Controller – “Make It Up” + “Kicking and Screaming”

controller - make it up

in my head it all makes sense

Brooklyn’s Controller are holding it down for all the rock heads out there who just like some guitar, drums, bass, and some lyrics sing along too when you are jumping in the pit.

Gett all that and one more for name-your-price at their Bandcamp. Happy Friday!
