O’Brother – “Context”
Experimental heavy rockers of O’Brother have been very busy the past year. Fresh off the road with Alice In Chains, they began work on their sophomore LP Disillusion, which is set for release on August 20th on Triple Crown Records. If you haven’t had a chance to see O’Brother live don’t miss out when they tour this fall for Disillusion. I’ve been lucky enough to see them twice and, man, these guys are riveting. “Context” is the first taste of the new album and the song’s sheer power and energy is undeniable. Fans of Queens of the Stone Age should be particularly attracted to it.
“This is the first song we wrote for the record,” bassist Anton Dang says. “We were just messing around one day during sound check last summer on tour. Tanner Merritt started playing the opening riff and then we all started jamming to it. After about five minutes of jamming, we stopped and that was when we all got excited about writing a new record.” (via Revolver)
