after a 2015 that was full of touring and writing, 2016 is shaping up to be the most prolific year of garbage yet. i’m not someone that generally releases a lot of new music, and usually stew over things for long periods of time as i road test material and refine recordings. 2016 is when a lot of new shit comes to light.
the winter is incubation, already underway. my shows during this season are going to feature a handful of the new things below, and trying out some new takes on old favourites. they’ll all be experiments and stress tests.
the spring is going to bring a dose of thundershowers as my Killjoy Collective pal VIRE and i unleash a mixtape of a new collaborative project that’s been brewing slowly across last year. if we’re lucky, maybe we’ll do some touring or one off shows behind it.
the summer will be humid and heavy. it’ll see the release a special super shhhhhh 7″ plus digital mixtape, all lovingly produced by a local ptbo producer who will be revealed soon. this release marks the first time that other rappers are doing feature verses on a release of mine, and the features already recorded for the 7″ alone are fucking dope as hell. more details when they’re ready. but it’s going to be fucking rad.
the fall & winter are going to be blustery as all hell, and will bring the release of Unreliable Narrator, my first full-length album, half-produced by me, and half-produced by ptbo’s own Dastard Hand. i’m really excited to birth this thing. the album will be released on 12″ and digitally. there will be touring, and plenty of it. i’ve already filmed one video for this album, with Thee Rob Viscardis, and more of that will happen.
so, that’s the weather forecast. hope everyone is ready to have garbage rain from the skies. in addition to the season schedule above, i hope to record a covers album at some point soon, maybe between winter and spring, with some of my favourite covers i’ve done over the years. it’ll be available exclusively as part of yet ANOTHER experiment, which is starting up this kind of subscription service to GARBAGEFACE INDUSTRIES. dubbed the “Garbagepail Kids Club,” it’s part subscription service and part club, where you can get all of the new shit i put out this year, plus more extra stuff, before anyone else.
to everyone that’s supported me so much over the years, i hope to make 2016 the year all of that support pays off for you, and you get as much garbage as you can handle. thanks for helping me get to this point. i needed you.
