The early birthing pains of O’ Brother saw Michael Martens, Johnny Dang, and his brother Anton Dang joined in making quiet climbs from graceful notes , a struck pose to an older guitar focused indie-rock. But as is the duty of all freshman bands members fade off and new friends, like Tanner Merritt and Aaron Wamack, joined establishing a new vision, and accidentally stumbling into the dark 2009 debut EP The Death of Day.
In 2010, O'Brother's tour schedule started with a heavy onset of dates that never relented. They transformed into a much tighter live band due to constantly performing.
At the end of the year, O'Brother began the writing process for their first full length. Drawing from their musical influences, the band also acknowledged the impact being on the road had had on them personally. Relationships with family, friends, and significant others altered dramatically due to touring. The readjustment to the normality of home life contradicted the escape from reality that touring presents. The tension created by this change needed to be captured as an influence on the new album.
It is a daunting task to creatively represent how you have grown as a band compared to your previous work. Not only has O'Brother grown collectively, but individually as well, both musically and professionally.
