The volume of chatter grows, the temperature rises, and the buzz in the room grows palpable. A flicker, then darkness as the house lights descend... The anticipation, the excitement that you're about to experience something unknown, together. The feeling of those shared experiences has been sorely missed. The physical community displaced, longing for that connection together. Born from the live experience, forged from the pandemic, that desire to be together served as the impetus for this record. The irony isn't lost on us that it took a year of home isolation to record a studio album inspired by live use. Recorded from afar, one by one, none of us together for a single note of the recording. The universe sure has a great sense of humor. YOU WALKED UP SHAKING IN YOUR BOOTS BUT YOU STOOD TALL AND LEFT A RAGING BULL is an album designed to put the wheels in motion, to get up and get after it.
