Album Notes
Whisperado follows up on its recent video single "Bang One Out" with a brand-new four-song EP, the first release from New York City's premiere roots-rock band since the dazzling 2016 "Mass Extinction No. 6" video and its first set of new songs in more than six years.

Whisperado will follow up the Bang One Out EP with a full-length album later in 2019.

While the "Bang One Out" single carries an antiwar and anti-hate message, the EP's other three tracks delve into other great songwriting traditions that have driven Whisperado since the band formed two decades ago. Bassist/principal songwriter Jon Sobel contributes the Americana roller "Bear Suit," a Halloween anthem inspired by the drastic gentrification of the Brooklyn neighborhoods where the band used to rehearse and gig, and "All the Truth I Need," a seething bluesy epic about love and betrayal, which gets a thundering mix by 6th Sense (Outasight). Back on the holiday tip, guitarist Patrick Nielsen Hayden takes over lead vocals for a rocking cover of Dave Alvin's "Fourth of July," propelled by drummer David Mills' dramatic syncopations, and artfully mixed, like "Bang One Out" and "Bear Suit," by Jay Mafale (The Ya-Yas).

"A lot of what we do seems driven by the state of the world, even without intending it," says Jon Sobel. "'Bang One Out' isn't partisan but it's overtly political. 'Bear Suit' focuses on the kind of local, social controversy that's affecting cities all over the U.S., with the dislocation and bitterness that happens when people and businesses are priced out of their neighborhoods. And even the cover we've chosen, 'Fourth of July,' seems more relevant than ever today, with its image of Mexican immigrant kids celebrating America's Independence Day."
