Comments BIGELF frontman and mastermind Damon Fox: "Let the ceremony commence!!! No more waiting...anticipating, the first single, 'Control Freak', is here.

"'Control Freak' is a bit different from previous BIGELF singles, it has a more aggressive approach that features mostly guitar.

"Life is bizarre indeed, and sometimes the universe has other plans in store for you. Hence you realize you're not in control and all the will power in the world won't alter your predicament. Paradoxically, the ultimate form of control is actually letting go. Which led me to the chorus lyrics, 'Please God help me to let it go.'

"I think there's a control freak in each one us, some worse than others, of course."

"Into The Maelstrom" will be available on a limited 2CD digipak which includes exclusive remixes and demo versions, as well as a gatefold 2LP vinyl edition which includes the full album on CD.
