Pitchfork Shares New Dads Track “Chewing Ghosts”

Sophomore LP I’ll Be the Tornado
Out October 14, 2014 via 6131 Records

Fall N. America Tour & Dates at
Riot Fest Chicago & Denver, Fest 13

Leading up to the release of their sophomore full-length I’ll Be The Tornado (out 10/14/14 on 6131 Records), New Jersey natives Dads have shared a third single from the record, “Chewing Ghosts”.  Pitchfork said of the track, “If there ever was an anthem for kids trying to learn from their mistakes and treat youth as a mile marker instead of a residence, Dads’ “Chewing Ghosts” is as catchy, idiosyncratic, and relatable of one as could be.”
Listen to “Chewing Ghosts”
The indie rock duo are set to embark on their first full North America headline tour this fall, bringing along Tiny Moving Parts, Nai Harvest, and Choir Vandals to support them. Dads recently wrapped up a North American support run with Touché Amoré and Tigers Jaw, and will be appearing at Riot Fest Chicago, Riot Fest Denver, and The Fest 13 during their headline tour (all tour dates below).Pre-order for I’ll Be The Tornado is now available via 6131 Records and on iTunes.  Recorded by Neil Strauch (Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, Iron & Wine, Owen) at MinBal Studio in Chicago, IL and mastered by Carl Saff (Dinosaur Jr., Guided By Voices, Speedy Ortiz), I’ll Be The Tornado truly shows how much Dads have grown, and the lyrics are perfect sketches of what it’s to leave youthful angst behind. Cover art and full track listing for the album are available below.
