Kellin Quinn Reveals Details of New ‘Downer Inc’ Solo Project with Cameron Mizell

Sleeping With Sirens’ frontman Kellin Quinn officially announced his side project, Downer Inc, on Thursday (June 25). Quinn previously revealed details on the side project in early May in an interview with Nick Major of Idobi Radio.

In early May Quinn told Idobi Radio: “Yeah, so I started a solo project called Downer Inc, and it’s me and Cameron Mizell who did our first couple albums, he did Feel and he did With Ears To See And Eyes To Hear. He and I are just trading music back and forth, I’ve got a little microphone setup here that the people at Telefunken sent me and i’m just working on electronic stuff.”

Today (June 25), Quinn shared an update on Instagram with fans telling them that he “decided” to put his “hopelessness” and his “fears” into a “musical diary of sorts.” That is within the 6-track EP from his new solo project, Downer Inc. He also revealed the name of the forthcoming EP which will be titled, Whatever This Is. 

“After a month of sitting home.. wondering what to do with myself.. I decided to put my hopelessness.. my fears… into a musical diary of sorts.. that was two months ago… Last night I finally turned in 6 songs that make up the EP titled “whatever this is” from a project I’m calling @downerinc music coming quickly so stay tuned!” Quinn explained.

Continuing to say: “I hope you’re doing ok living in the #whateverthisis just know I got you with some music to hopefully get you by! #downerinc thanks @dentistpdx for the art! Thanks @katelynnequinn for the photo and video content (coming soon) thanks @cameronpiercemizell for believing in my vision @nickjamezproductions for the insane mixing and mastering (proud of you and your talent) and finally thanks to @mddnco and @sumerianrecords for letting me get creative on a whole new level!”

We are not defined by our short comings, we’re defined by how we overcome them. (Long post) Today I completed my first half marathon that’s 13 miles.. My goal was to complete it in 2 hours.. I finished 2:09 min and 49 seconds.. This has been a long road for me.. last year I reached a year of sobriety.. which was huge for me.. But then I fell back into drinking and depression.. I wondered how did I end up back here? The answer? I was trying to fix myself for everyone else.. and the truth is you can’t become who you’re meant to be until you do it for yourself.. I’m proud to say that today I’m 7 months sober.. I’ve lost over 12 pounds.. (too skinny lol) time to bulk and lift! I’ve completed my first side project EP #downerinc I’ve restored my relationships.. I’ve found joy in abundance.. And for the first time in my life I can say I’m happy! I’m figuring out that life is about the long distance.. and the miles we put into it.. SO In conclusion… Don’t be so hard on yourself.. you WILL fall down.. BUT Get up.. And when you keep getting up.. you find that you can overcome anything! Be good, Be kind, Forgive yourself, forgive others, try, fall, get up again, and keep moving! Love you! Xoxo Kellin.
