NEW LP OURDEADFATHERS II SET FOR RELEASE 10/9/2020
THE OLD WAY OF MEASURE, PANDEMICS AND RECORD RELEASING ARE TERRIBLE BEDFELLOWS, HOWEVER, IN BOTH CASES, THE SHOW MUST GO ON AND OURDEADFATHERS ARE SET TO push our second Album Child out into the world on 10/9/2020.
Please keep checking back with us as we have plans to produce some video, a single release coming soon, and lots of band content to post and keep refreshed...from rehearsal highlight reals, to full band performances, and some solo performances from Christopher.
The band is busy working on material for our next two albums simultaneously.
There is an album's worth of material written, of eclectic cuts focused around Christopher's guitar, vocals and lyrics, with full band accompaniment, this material will be continuing the course of ODF's previous LPs.
The band has simultaneously taken on the process of learning this already written material, and at the same time writing, as a band, a third record of what can be described as darker, jazzier, weightier music. Not terribly unlike the song On Windowsill, the first cut off of OurDeadFathers II. These songs may be producing a proclivity for "one mic in the room" recording techniques. For those not familiar, this typically involves the musicians positioning around the recording microphone in a way that allows for the song to be played live and not have the trumpet drowning out the singer, for instance. This can create some depth in a song's recording that can otherwise get lost in our current era of over productions. Plus bragging rights.
Stay safe all. Wear your masks. Keep making art. Practice tolerance. It's not easy. We can do it.
