Kingston, New York experimental will issue its fourth full-length, Tears We Should Have Shed, this Friday, and in advance of its official release, BrooklynVegan is hosting an exclusive stream of the entire album.
The project of Morgan Y. Evans, joined by a cast of collaborators, WALKING BOMBS here delivers a musical study in navigating regretful occurrences in humanity with Tears We Should Have Shed. It is a record steeped in sorrows and triumphs, delivered through a wide range of varied musical styles.
Recorded throughout 2020, engineered, mixed, and mastered by Sean Paul Pillsworth at Nada Recording Studio in Montgomery, New York (Senses Fail, Shai Hulud, My Chemical Romance), Tears We Should Have Shed sees Evans performing lead vocals as well as acoustic guitar, trombone, bass, guitar, and piano contributions across the album, with guest contributions from Elizabeth “Le Fey” DaPena (Globelamp), Sean Paul Pillsworth (Nightmares For A Week, Jerk Magnet), David Brenner (Gridfailure), David Bodie (ex-Time Of Orchids, Divest, Kayo Dot), Taraka Larson (Taraka, ex-Prince Rama), Jack Manley (The Jenifer Shop), and Justin Zipperle (Shadow Witch).
Evans writes with the advance album stream, “As Adam Toledo shows us, we need mass healing for society from many wounds. This album is about wrestling with grief, sobriety, and PTSD within the disinfo fallout from no consensus reality anymore. Shoutout to my friend Danny Habo who just passed away; this stream goes out to you.”
BrooklynVegan posts, “The album is indeed all over the place, with everything from anthemic punk ragers to folky ballads to brooding goth to noisy industrial and more. It combines things that you very rarely hear on the same LP, and Morgan does it with so much conviction that nothing ever feels out of place. It’s a genuinely cool, inventive approach to album-making, and you can hear it for yourself below.”
