 “I decided to dedicate the video for “War Hero” to Ukraine and their quest to break free from Russian military oppression. Communism and the Soviet Union have fallen, but Russian imperialism has not. When I flew to Kiev to shoot the video I was excited to see firsthand the demonstrations and the fight for freedom and self-determination. After the video shoot, I flew back to New York confident that the Ukrainians would succeed in overthrowing the Yanukovich regime that took its orders from the Kremlin in Moscow. I felt honored to have seen them go to the streets and literally fight the government security forces and after a long struggle they finally took control of their own fate. The whole world raised their hands and cherished this victory of democracy and sovereignty. Finally Ukraine would be free. Right?…Wrong! As I write this now Russian soldiers continue to terrorize and a full scale invasion is still imminent” Explains Rob

 For the upcoming 2015 album Rays of Sun, Decoup and producer Plotnikoff assembled a sturdy cast of players to realize the rhythm and urgency of his songs. “Eric Friedman from Creed is on guitar, Marty O’Brien from Lita Ford’s band plays bass, Phil X who replaced Richie Sambora as touring guitarist for Bon Jovi lays down some nice leads and Dan Welby did the basic drum tracks.” says Rob
