Press Release: Chad Parks and the Near Death Experience
The Brooklyn 'neo-surf punk blues' trio plays Fraktal June 22nd and helps Muddum celebrate its second birthday on June 24th
In describing the group, Chad has this to say: "We're trying to write songs people can party to, that aren't cookie cutter or a blatant bid to join the ranks of corporate rock (while its become almost cliché for 'indies' to dis corporate rock, we fucking hate it hate it hate it!)."
He goes on to say: "I'd hate to say it's 'message music' but we do write about the times we live in, and not just clever pop ditties about how cute our girlfriends are (though they are). Sometimes people say our stuff is really dark and confrontational and all I can say to that is 'have you looked around yourself lately?' Oddly I find a lot of humor in songs like God is Out to Get You or Love in the Apocalypse though I've had people think I was dead serious."
Joining Mr. Parks is bassist Aaron Goldsmith who comes from an array of eclectic projects such as gypsy punk tango quintet, The Luminescent Orchestrii who toured the Europe in 2004 and the Americana/Old Tyme project The Strung Out String Band who toured Ireland and the UK in 2005. It is with great pleasure that Aaron is getting back to his roots playing electric bass and "rockin' out in a minor key."
Drummer Benjamin Ironside just recently returned from a "lost year" in South East Asia where he claims to have played music, though no one really knows for sure what happened to him out there...We are just told that that now he's "different."
