Minneapolis natives Household are thrilled to be streaming their forthcoming album, Everything A River Should Be, in full today via Substream Magazine. Previously featured on Alternative Press, and named one of the site’s “18 Artists To Watch in 2018,” Everything A River Should Be will be released this Friday, February 23rd, 2018 via Equal Vision Records. It is now available for pre-order at

On the album, vocalist Joshua Gilbert shares: “After 2 years of writing, we’re finally able to share these songs with everyone! It means the world, having a label like equal vision to release this album on. The songs reflect the spectrum of human emotion and the cost of relationships. I hope these tracks meet people where they’re at. All we can offer is our experiences and Everything a River Should Be is our representation of this messy but worthwhile life.”

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 will be touring in support of the new record this winter with Senses Fail, Reggie & The Full Effect, and Have Mercy. The run kicks off in Santa Ana on February 27th and concludes in Las Vegas on March 31st. For a full list of dates, please see below:
