Five years after their seminal "Fake Meets Failure" LP, Red Dons return with their junior album "The Dead Hand of Tradition”.
A lot has happened in those five years.
Two of the band's core members Douglas Burns and Hajji Husayn left their hometown Portland, Oregon behind, for Chicago and London. They recorded and released a slew of singles on labels like Grave Mistake and Dirtnap (including a collaboration with TV Smith of UK punk legends The Adverts). Despite the distance between them, they’ve managed to tour regularly in North America and Europe.
In early 2015, they reconvened in Portland to record "The Dead Hand of Tradition" at Buzz Or Howl Studios, the same establishment where they recorded the album's predecessor. "The Dead Hand of Tradition" features ten new tracks of their signature dark, driving, melodic punk rock sound. The formula of their distinctive songwriting hasn't changed, but has matured as a result of having five more nomadic years under their belts. These new experiences have only added to the themes of alienation, emigration, and loss, present in their music.
