NYC psych-punk band Acid Dad have announced the release of their sophomore album 'Take It From The Dead'.
The follow-up to their 2018's self-titled debut, will be released in June 2021 by Brooklyn’s Greenway Records and psych powerhouse LEVITATION’s label, The Reverberation Appreciation Society.
During 2020, the band spent their time building a new studio space in Queens, NY, while continuing to independently produce all their own music, art and even building their own guitars. With a new space and vision, the band produced their second LP.
“Take It From The Dead” features an array of different influences ranging from 90’s neo-psych, modern post-punk and 70’s rock-n-roll. Acid Dad has crafted a record that sounds new, yet feels nostalgic. In contrast to their earlier work, they make use of slower tempos and expand their sound to include songs that are both more intricate and more hypnotic. To accompany the new record, the band spent the last year collaborating with video artist Webb Hunt, producing psych and glitch art videos that form a visual counterpart to the dreamy distortions of their sound.
The band have also shared the video for their new single "RC Driver", grab it here. Speaking about it, the band’s Vaughn Hunt says: “‘RC Driver’ is about how I wish I raced cars for a living. All I wanna do is go fast and do stunts. I grew up near a lake, so jet skis are the next closest thing. Ain’t nothing like rippin’ a supercharged Sea-Doo going ninety miles per hour on pure glass, baby. Webb, our visual artist, and I got inspired and started digging for ’80s and ’90s jet ski commercials. We distorted and chopped them up into a VHS color trip using a combination of digital and analog feedback.”
