SEBADOH Drops Another Track From New LP – Here’s ‘RAGING RIVER’…

Brand new sonic impulses

If you didn’t know yet, SEBADOH is back. The band founded in 1988 by bassist Lou Barlow (former Dinosaur Jr member), drummer Bob D’Amico and guitarist Jason Loewenstein. After
a string of varying LPs they split in 1999, then returned in 2013 with longplayer ‘Defend Yourself‘.

Today, almost 6 years later a new LP, entitled ACT SURPRISED, is about to hit the streets. The mood swing lead single Celebrate The Void was dropped last month and now here’s another new one. ‘RAGING RIVER‘ is a steamy outburst inspired by Loewenstein question: “Wouldn’t it be great if a big raging river came thru here and washed away all the assholes?”.

SEBADOH Returns With New Album After Six Years – Here’s The First Mood Swing Single ‘CELEBRATE THE VOID’…

Brand new sonic impulses

In 1988, bassist Lou Barlow (former Dinosaur Jr. member), drummer Bob D’Amico
and guitarist Jason Loewenstein formed lo-fi and slacker rock trio SEBADOH. After a
series of albums with mixed success they called it a day in 1999, but returned in 2013
with the pretty heavy and versatile longplayer Defend Yourself. After lukewarm reviews
it seemed as if the threesome was finally done. But you never know with chaotic mind Lou Barlow. Yes indeed, a new LP, entitled ACT SURPRISED will see the day of light next May via Fire Records. Here’s first single CELEBRATE THE VOID. After a reflective first half the track turns into a firm rocker. Check the mood swing right here…
