Bound For Glory on 16th April 
“when armed with a guitar, DeRose makes music that beckons and calls out, as if demanding to be heard. DeRose also has a secret weapon: a voice that seems to expose his very soul.” NPR
“The 25-year-old Damien DeRose takes songwriting to another level… DeRose’s vocals float above acoustic guitar melodies, evoking the lyrical eloquence and delicate arrangements of Rogue Wave and the late Elliot Smith.” Magnet
“It's a good feeling to come across an artist you instantly like, sort of by accident. That happened to me with Peasant …..” Brooklyn Vegan

The talented singer and songwriter Damien DeRose aka Peasant, ,  will release his third and most complete album to date, Bound for Glory on 16th April via London-based Schnitzel Records (Ween and Hello=Fire).
The follow up to the critically acclaimed Shady Retreat (2010)- Bound for Glory is a collection of quietly joyful diverse tracks revealing new layers of artistic depth.
Bound for Glory’s sharp observations and thought-provoking lyrics are made addictive when mixed with its easy, lush, and dreamy instrumentation. From the album’s gentle hypnotic title track to the solo confessional “Doesn’t Mean”, the joyful spring of “The Flask” and sensual chugging of “Girls” -  "Bound For Glory" will captivate and capture from beginning to end.
DeRose, now 25, has been actively releasing records for the last four years and has toured extensively with the likes of Cursive, Deer Tick, Albert Hammond Jr. and Steve Earle.
