Household present their new song “Don’t Listen to Me” off the forthcoming album “Everything A River Should Be” due out February 23rd on Equal Vision Records.  Check out the music video below. You can pre-order the new album right here.

 

Minneapolis, MN – January 10, 2018 – With a new year ahead and a new label at their side, Minneapolis natives Household are thrilled to announce their forthcoming album Everything A River Should Be, out February 23rd, 2018 via Equal Vision Records. Fans can get a taste of the band’s “earnest, sprawling take on punk-influenced emo sounds” (Alternative Press) by watching their new video “Don’t Listen To Me.” For more information or to pre-order the record, please visit: household.merchnow.com.

 

This is a pretty defining record for us,” admits vocalist/bassist Joshua Gilbert. “We’ve been a hardcore band for a while and this is our first transition into more of this rock/emo that we’re doing. Writing a record like this felt more true to who I am as an individual but also who our band is.

 

As it turns out, Everything A River Should Be is a record that redefines who and what – and even why – the Minneapolis trio are. Anybody familiar with the music the band – vocalist and bassist Joshua Gilbert, drummer Matthew Anthony, and guitarist Nathanael Olsen – made before will immediately hear the shift in sound of these 11 songs. While the urgency and sincerity of the raw and visceral post-hardcore they began life making remains, Everything A River Should Be is a collection of dense, dark and brooding songs full of a tense, glowering atmosphere.

 

Lyrically, too, the album – which was recorded over the course of a month by Nate Washburn at Atlanta’s Glow In The Dark studios – marks a change in approach. Not only is this the first time the band have really had any production on a recording, but Gilbert says he has never written from the heart so much or presented so much of himself – and his emotions and fears and insecurities – within his songs.

 

The songs touch on some close-to-home feelings for me,” he says. “It’s much more of a personal expression of my own emotions – it’s not so much a declarative thing, as some of our music has been in the past. It’s more personal and vulnerable in a lot of ways.

 

The band will be touring in support of the new record this winter with Senses Fail, Reggie & The Full Effect, and Have Mercy. The run kicks off in Santa Ana on February 27th and concludes in Las Vegas on March 31st. For a full list of dates, please see below or visit: www.equalvision.com/tour-dates.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.

Becoming Comrades

The trio of Comrades – husband and wife Joe and Laura McElroy alongside drummer John Gaskil – is used to living in a van and touring the country. Now, their new normal has provided them with a moment to "be adults" for once. We recently sat down with the McElroys to talk more about the spiritual reality within life, how soon they'll be able to release new music, and how koalas are their new normal.
