On September 9th, 2013, Sub Pop will have the great pleasure of releasing Obits’ 3rd album, Bed & Bugs, on CD, DL and LP. The 13-track album, featuring highlights “It’s Sick,” “Taste the Diff,” and “Receptor,” was recorded and mixed in an undisclosed location in Arlington, VA by Nikhil Ranade with additional mixing by Eli Janney and Geoff Sanoff.
Much like their previous albums ‘I Blame You’ and ‘Moody Standard and Poor,’ ‘Bed & Bugs’ is a master class of guitar tone and groove, punctuated by Rick Froberg’s unmistakeable signature snarl. Sohrab Habibion’s more considered vocal offerings turn up on ‘Machines,’ the album’s hypnotic slow jam. And, Bed & Bugs is the first album featuring new drummer Alexis Fleisig. Obits’ musical talents, exercised and sharpened long before the band’s inception, shine on Bed & Bugs in an exciting new demonstration of their uncompromised musicianship.
You can now preorder Obits Bed & Bugs from subpop.com While supplies last, orders of the CD and LP will receive a free, limited-edition 7” single featuring live versions of “Refund” (previous 7") and “Talking to the Dog” (from I Blame You) on the A-side with “New August” (from Moody, Standard and Poor) on the B-side. The tracks were recorded while on tour August 2012 at Red 7 in Austin, Texas. 3 brand new Obits t-shirts are also available now.
Bed & Bugs will be available as a limited Loser Edition coloured version of the LP from SubPop.com and at Obits' shows.
