Guitar World streaming new Davenport Cabinet album!
Davenport Cabinet has partnered with Guitar World for the exclusive premiere of their new full-length, Damned Renegades, which will be out September 30 on Equal Vision Records. The album can be heard in its entirety HERE.
The Warwick, NY-based outfit formed in 2007 as a solo project for Coheed and Cambria guitarist Travis Stever and has since expanded into a full band endeavor where he is joined by Tyler Klose (vocals/guitar), Tom Farkas (bass), and Michael Hickey (drums, percussion, vocals).
“Damned Renegades is a very personal record, lyrically and sonically. My relationship with the album was much like that of a mad scientist and his experiment. While writing it, I was anxiously awaiting becoming a new father and focused all of that excitement and energy into the music,” reveals Stever. “As much as I wanted to just center on preparing for the birth, I felt that I needed to record the music we were creating first. The rest of the Davenport guys very willingly came along with me for the ride, adding in their own music styles and flavors all over the record. The record stretches all over musically, showcasing the diversity that lies within the Cabinet.”
Stever adds, “Damned Renegades finds Davenport Cabinet exactly where I have always wanted it musically. With Tyler, Tom, and Mike, I was able to achieve the full band sound and group interaction I’ve always wanted with the project. I couldn’t be more proud of this record.”
Damned Renegades is the follow-up to the band’s latest release, 2013’s Risks in Magic EP (Evil Ink Records). Preceding the EP were two full-length albums: 2013’s Our Machine (Evil Ink Records) and 2008’s Nostalgia in Stereo (Equal Vision Records).
The new album offers Damned Renegades signature mix of alternative folk, indie rock, and classic rock stylings and earnest lyrical workings.
Pre-orders for the album are available now through MerchNOW.
