Taco Bees was a track we recorded for a split with Gaggle of Cocks that never came to fruition. True to our inability to self edit it’s really two shorter rock tunes jammed into one 7 minute track. We wrote and recorded it in 2015 and dug it but also knew it didn’t work with the other stuff we were writing at the time (material which would go on to become III).
Lyrically, the first part of the song is about those 3 am phone calls that come more often the older you get and the realization that your world has always held a certain degree of menace or tragedy, but if you’re lucky, you get to coast through a few decades happy and dumb before it catches up to you.
The second part is a love letter to being in a band and draws a straight line from being a dopey kid riding bikes with your buddies to being a dopey adult pushing aside your responsibilities to ride around in a van playing shows with your buddies.
released February 5, 2021
Recorded and mixed at Gradwell House Studios by Steve Poponi.
this is an amazing album 🤘🤘🤘
From start to finish, it just rips through heavy riff after riff!!!
The musicianship and arrangements are spot on!!! I know it's early in the year of 2021 but this is my favorite release so far and it's going to be hard to top it!!! doylemccloude
