Twilight's Moon: Biography: Part V: From "Electric" to Today

Within a few months of completing the promotional cycle on "Emergency Exit", Brian was able to amass enough material to release an EP, April 9th's "Close to Me", featuring two covers of songs by The Cure, a remake of two "Emergency Exit" songs, and one new track. For the next several months, however, Larsen failed to gather any new material. By June, he had started work on a trance album (another first for Brian), but it would be nearly nine months before this disc would be completed, despite its anticipated release date of September 24th, 2002. During this period, he finally sought treatment for years of depression. Larsen found immediate solace in the help he sought, and he began rehabilitating himself over the summer and fall of 2002. By April 2003, Brian was ready to get back to music. He finished the songs for the trance album "Electric" in early 2003, and it was released on April 8 amid increidble personal turmoil and change. In June, Larsen broke off a two year engagement with his fiance. "I caught her cheating on me," he notes, looking at and fidgeting with his hands. "There was nothing I could have done." Determined to come out the other end stronger, he completely changed his look, and emerged from a long recluse his healthiest and happiest ever. Shortly thereafter, he began collecting songs for his first rock record in more than two years. That album, "Broken Windows", was released December 23, 2003. "I understand now that there are ups and downs in life, but that you have to take the good with the bad and that you have to realize that you can work through your struggles. I know now how to get through life with a positive attitude, and I have a stronger desire than ever to make music." Just as has been the hope of so many of his fans, friends, and family, Brian has found true happiness in his life and in his music, and with that happiness comes the desire for countless more Twilight's Moon albums over countless years to come, and we can all take solace in that.
