Sea Legs Release Dad Punchers Self-Titled LP
New Project of Touche Amore Drummer Elliott Babin
Sea Legs is honored to announce the signing of Los Angeles based Dad Punchers. Dad Punchers is the newest project from Elliot Babin, drummer of Touche Amore and DNF. Since 2009, he has found himself on a demanding eight months out of the year tour schedule. In the brief interludes back home in L.A., Babin started writing and recording his own songs. The result is Dad Punchers, a nostalgic, sometimes searing dissection of Babin’s life and the people he has met in his time abroad. The 11 tracks on this “bummer punk” debut LP touch on gender roles, codependency, romantic comedy films, consumerism, body image, dwelling on the past, and living while always moving.
This the first release for Long Beach, CA label Sea Legs. Sea Legs was started by Merrick Jarmulowicz who splits his time as the booking agent for Touché Amore, Title Fight, Balance and Composure, Tigers Jaw and more. Dad Punchers s/t LP was recorded at Alex Estrada’s Earth Capital Studios with Joyce Manor’s Matt Ebert playing bass and providing backup vocals.
