Down Again Announce Debut Album ‘The Devil Is A Gentleman’
The Northern California post-hardcore trio reveal a June 12 release for the album and premiere the music video for the single “Actions & Their Consequences”
(SAN FRANCISCO, CA) - May 21, 2020 - Northern California post hardcore outfit Down Again have announced a June 12 release date for their debut full-length ‘The Devil Is A Gentleman’. The 13 track LP features the single “Actions and Their Consequences”, which saw a music video for the effort premiere this week via New Noise online. The album will be self-released by the band and the single for “Actions” is currently available to stream on Spotify, Youtube and Apple Music.
‘The Devil Is A Gentleman’ was written as an outlet for vocalist/guitarist Lenny Costa to tell a story of inner struggle and coming to grips with those closest to him slowly drifting away. With lyrical themes ranging from losing faith, depression, hope and relationships, each track is also left to the listener to interpret as their own. The trio also includes Alex Wechter (bass) and Lucas Garcia who handles guitar for live shows and also played drums, keys, backing vocals and co-wrote lyrics with Costa. “We have an incredible synergy amongst the three of us’ says the band. “This is the sort of thing that is a total trip to look back at, how a few friends can take a bunch of ideas, candid stories and put it all together in one full album to share.”
Musically, the sound pulls heavy influence from early 2000’s post hardcore favorites, which they cite groups like Underoath, Thrice and Brand New as their inspiration to pick up instruments and begin their own journeys. This young group has assembled an album that easily sounds like a release from a band years into their career, but is just the beginning for these longtime friends in their early 20’s who grew up skating, surfing and going to shows together in the bay area.
‘The Devil Is A Gentleman’ was produced and mixed by Nick Loiacono (Kingdom Of Giants, Wolf & Bear, Secret Band, Demon In Me) and will be available June 12th on CD and on most streaming platforms. Additional singles including “Burning The Candle At Both Ends (Part II” and “Sinking Ship” will be previewed in the coming weeks.
