ACID DAD PREMIERES NEW SONG “DON’T GET TAKEN”
VIA BROOKLYN VEGAN
DEBUT EP LET’S PLAN A ROBBERY OUT FEBRUARY 26, 2016
WINTER/SPRING TOUR DATES
Acid Dad debuted their new song “Don’t Get Taken” this morning via Brooklyn Vegan and the track – which is off their forthcoming debut EP Let’s Start A Robbery – can also now be streamed here: https://soundcloud.com/aciddadnyc/dont-get-taken. The Let’s Start A Robbery EP will be released on February 26, 2016; it’s now available for pre-order as a limited edition cassette tape via Knife Tapes here.
Known for their live show, the band will head out on a lengthy U.S. tour later this month, beginning with a stretch of dates with White Reaper that kicks off on February 28th in Chattanooga, TN. Acid Dad’s tour dates will continue through April 21st in Chicago, IL, and include an April 8th show in Los Angeles, CA. A current itinerary is below.
Although barely 18-months-old, Acid Dad have quickly established themselves as one of the tightest, tireless, and most energetic live bands in the Brooklyn scene, with Oh My Rockness deeming them one of the site’s ‘Hardest-Working Bands of 2015.’ The foursome – all in their early 20s and two of whom were enrolled full-time at NYU until recently – have already released a string of infectious psych-punk singles that have earned them nods from the likes of Stereogum, Newsweek (‘Nine February Albums We Can’t Wait To Listen To’), NYLON, Village Voice, Impose, HERO, CMJ, The Deli, and more.
Let’s Plan A Robbery is a magnetic four-song EP self-recorded by the band in upstate New York throughout December 2015 and January 2016. Expanding upon their previous singles, the EP ranges from the explosive drive of opener “Don’t Get Taken” to the psych-sway of “Fool’s Gold”; from the dynamic charge of “Digger (Gotta Get That Money)” to the languid, hypnotic closer “Shoot You Down,” with guitarists Vaughn Hunt or Danny Gomez handling lead vocals on every other track.
Acid Dad is: Sean Fahey (bass/vocals), Danny Gomez (vocals/guitar), Vaughn Hunt (vocals/guitar), and Kevin Walker (drums).
