It’s been a very busy year with the release of the book, Bad Blood – A Life Without Consequence, along with two full-length albums, GRAY/SCALE, and the soundtrack to the book, Bad Blood. While unplanned, two new songs happened: a Christmas song, College Radio Christmas Eve. A song commemorating a very somber Christmas eve many (MANY) years ago when late one night I discovered a faint college radio station playing alternative and modern rock Christmas and holiday songs. I instantly didn’t feel so alone. The other song, Winter Chill, An introspective and contemplative ambient-tinged instrumental for the holidays and winter.
Both songs are available on our Christmas EP along with Memories Drift (It’s Christmas), which was first released in 2007. Also included is the unreleased instrumental version of Memories Drift.
We have also released several single tracks and mini-extended plays as the year draws to an end.
The Bad Blood book and album will be available on January 1, 2021.
We’re wishing everyone a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays for all!

My name is David B. Roundsley and “Bad Blood – A Life Without Consequence” (Book and Album) is my memoir about the search for my birth parents and my DNA origins. I am a musician (writing and recording as Munich Syndrome since the mid-80’s), graphics and multimedia designer and an adoptee. This book lays out and details the unexpected search for my DNA origins and brings to light the far-reaching consequences of poor judgments and bad decisions.
The story reads on many levels: true-crime, adventure, mystery and in some respects a how-to for anyone sincerely interested in discovering the truth about their DNA origins and past. Covering many decades and many lives, the book is a documentation of my search and the many families that were affected.
Bad Blood – the album
I am also a musician, writing and recording under the name Munich Syndrome since the mid-80’s. While this is my first book, the accompanying soundtrack / curated listening will be my 11th album.
The genesis of the Bad Blood album was to initially do a song for the book and Kickstarter project (“Bad Blood, the Ballad of a Bad Man”), but evolved into a soundtrack / curated listening experience to accompany the book.
The 16-track album of dreamy electronica mixed with acoustic instruments is cinematic, atmospheric, dreamy, mysterious and an aural companion to the book.
