Yeah, it’s been a while since the last post, but there’s been a lot going on.
The important thing is, there’s a lot coming up — not the least of which is a new record: a 10″, called Live At the Sun Tiki, or as we like to call it: L@ST.
It’s exactly what it sounds like: a live set, recorded live and in person at the Sun Tiki Studios in Portland, Maine, on February 5, 2022.
It’s limited to 25 lathe-cut copies, each with a different cover, and the art — from Seattle’s Bonz Fuchno — is hella cool. We’re gonna be rolling out Bonz’s covers on our Insta feed in the coming weeks, but the music itself isn’t going to be on any streaming service, or available anywhere else, for that matter – ’cause, you know, we want to be as commercially inaccessible as possible. The records will include a download code and they’ll be available for pre-order soon on our Bandcamp page, but when they’re gone, they’re gone.
We’ll be doing a record release party at the Brass Rail in Portland on Saturday, August 27, with our friends, Pine Tree Riot, and The House Flies, who headlined that infamous show at the Sun Tiki that ended up on the record. It’s gonna be a night to remember … and we’ll hold five copies of the record for the show, so if you miss out on the Bandcamp page, you can score one there.
Can’t wait for the Brass Rail show? No worries.
The folks at Mushroom Stomp Records were kind enough to have us stop by and record a set for them a couple of months ago, and it’s now officially up and running on their YouTube channel. If you’ve got a few minutes, stop by and check it out, ’cause it’s right there, below. We’re wicked proud of it, and Luke did a helluva job capturing the Plague Dad sound.
Not satisfied with mere video? Fine, come catch us live.
We’re playing in Bangor at G-Force on Friday, June 24, with River of Trees (a Mushroom Stomp band) and Peach Hat, who we were lucky enough to see at the Sun Tiki a couple of months ago. It’s gonna be a helluva show. Tickets at the door.
There’s a lot more coming up, too — including a couple of high-profile shows in Portland later this summer, a live set on USM’s WMPG in July, and maybe even a livestream or two, but more about all that later.
Stay tuned, and thanks for listening.
