Dads Sophomore LP I’ll Be the Tornado
Out Now via 6131 Records

Fall N. America Tour Begins This Week

The impressive sophomore full-length I’ll Be The Tornado from New Jersey natives Dads is officially out on 6131 Records today. The album premiered last week on  Pitchfork who awarded the record a 7.5/10, calling it a “gut-spilling, bold and progressive album”.
I’ll Be The Tornado sees the duo branching out into guitar-driven indie rock, with lyrics that drive home just how difficult it can be to transition from youthful angst to adulthood. Singer/drummer John Bradley’s powerful, poetic words make the record instantly relatable and his voice has a quality that makes the songs on I’ll Be The Tornado overwhelmingly warm and  human.
Dads are set to embark on their first full North America headline tour this week, bringing along Tiny Moving Parts, Nai Harvest, and Choir Vandals to support them, and appearing at The Fest 13 this month as well. The band recently wrapped up a summer North American support run with Touché Amoré and Tigers Jaw as well as appearances at Riot Fest Chicago and Riot Fest Denver (all tour dates below).

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. Cover art and full track listing for the album are available below.
