The Bucket Sessions pt. 1

Hello Floodheads. How are you today? Has anyone asked you that?  Hopefully we’re the first. Because we care. As this is being typed, rain is falling and David Bowie is playing softly in the background. So, yeah, this day rocks on our end.

What’s going on in Floodland? Thank you for asking. WE’RE MAKING AN ALBUM!!!! We’re hiding away in the depths of Burnside Industrial Park in an old carpeting warehouse, creating musical fusion TO THE MAX. Our engineering wizard Ron Smith is working his magic, our best friend Shane Pugh is providing growler sips, moral support, and has been found running the board a time or two, and us Floods are tinkering away at some very exciting new material. We’re there every day into the wee hours of the morning, drinking (too much) coffee, smoking (too many) cigarettes, and having (all kinds of) fun.  

What can you expect? Energy. Excitement. Passion. Precision. Sonic weirdness. Guitar feedback. Synth. Gang vocals. Songs being played backwards. Rawness. Heavy, chaotic noise. Soft, ambient silence. Everything. Nothing. You know, everything you’ve come to expect from us.

We couldn’t be more excited to be working on our new material, and we’re even more excited for you to hear it. Keep your eyes, ears, and hearts open in the coming months, and we’ll keep you in the loop. (PSST, keep September open...you’ll have a CD release show to attend!)

We’ll be playing throughout the summer months around the East Coast (maybe even a road trip or two to Ontario?), so make sure you watch for our upcoming shows. Come see a show, get sweaty, dance lots, wear socks, rock, roll, etc., etc., etc.

We’ll see you on the dance floor.
