CoS dubs New O’Brother Song “headbanging-worthy”

Consequence of Sound Premieres “Machines Part I” off O’Brother’s Debut Album Garden Window – out November!

Check Out: O’Brother – “Machines Part – 1 (CoS Premiere)

Written during the final weeks of 2010 following an unrelenting tour schedule, the debut full-length of Atlanta’s O’Brother is an acknowlegement on how that time away from home affected them personally, including the strains on relationships with friends and family, the contradiction of touring versus home life, and the tension of developing as a collective. The outcome is Garden Window, an 11-track LP that blends the band’s many influences: the aggression of Deftones and Torche, soaring guitars of Britain’s Oceansize, a hopefulness in line with Sigur Rós, and an attempt at the emotional depth possessed by Radiohead and Thom Yorke.

To harness their energy, the band enlisted Andy Hull and Robert McDowell of Manchester Orchestra to serve as producers, and hired Mike Sapone (Brand New, Public Enemy, Taking Back Sunday) to mix the final product. Ahead of the album’s November release date via Triple Crown Records/Favorite Gentlemen, the band is rolling out the lead single, “Machines Part -1″. The heavy, alt-rock track showcases the vocals of Tanner Merritt, the driving bottom end courtesy of bassist Anton Dang and drummer Michael Martens, and headbanging-worthy riffs of dual guitarists Johnny Dang and Aaron Wamack. Check it out below.

Leading up to the album’s release, O’Brother will spend time on the road with Thrice, Moving Mountains, and La Dispute. You can find their entire tour schedule, along with the album’s tracklist below.

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
