HOUSEHOLD PREMIERE “DARK MATTER” MUSIC VIDEO
Minneapolis natives Household are thrilled to share their brand new video, “Dark Matter,” premiering now via New Noise Magazine. “Dark Matter” comes from the band’s latest album, Everything A River Should Be, which has recently been featured on Substream Magazine and Alternative Press. Everything A River Should Be is available now via Equal Vision Records at household.merchnow.com.
On “Dark Matter,” vocalist Joshua Gilbert shares: “’Dark Matter’ is a nod to our older sound. With a generally slower and more melancholic album, it was fun writing a faster track. This song captures relationship at its worst, the extremes or negative energy causing havoc.”
Everything A River Should Be is a record that redefines who and what – and even why – the Minneapolis trio are. Anybody familiar with the music the band – vocalist and bassist Joshua Gilbert, drummer Matthew Anthony, and guitarist Nathanael Olsen – made before will immediately hear the shift in sound of these 11 songs. While the urgency and sincerity of the raw and visceral post-hardcore they began life making remains, Everything A River Should Be is a collection of dense, dark and brooding songs full of a tense, glowering atmosphere.
Lyrically, too, the album – which was recorded over the course of a month by Nate Washburn at Atlanta’s Glow In The Dark studios – marks a change in approach. Not only is this the first time the band have really had any production on a recording, but Gilbert says he has never written from the heart so much or presented so much of himself – and his emotions and fears and insecurities – within his songs.
“The songs touch on some close-to-home feelings for me,” he says. “It’s much more of a personal expression of my own emotions – it’s not so much a declarative thing, as some of our music has been in the past. It’s more personal and vulnerable in a lot of ways.”
The band is on tour now with Senses Fail, Reggie & The Full Effect, and Have Mercy.
