Brooklyn-based indie group Active Bird Community releases their debut album Amends on Barsuk records today.
The release of Amends precedes an extensive North American tour commencing at Rough Trade in Brooklyn on September 27th and wrapping up November 3rd in Mr Smalls Theatre in Pittsburgh. A complete list of tour dates available on the band’s website.
According to the to album release: “Amends dwells in the intricacies of relationships — broken bonds between friends, family, and lovers — and hoping to heal. A contemplation on loss and forgiveness, the album volleys between the perspectives of singer/guitarist Tom D’Agustino and co-songwriter/lead guitarist Andrew Wolfson… The 11 tracks deal with universal themes including the tension of family, loss, and learning to move on without resentment; breakups; anxieties; and hope for the future. As a whole, Amends represents Active Bird Community’s efforts to contend honestly with the pain of their experiences and explore the empowering nature of forgiveness.”
Active Bird Community consists of Tom D’Agustino (vocals, guitar), Andrew Wolfson (vocals/lead guitar), Quinn McGovern (drums), and Zach Slater (bass) and Amends is available on white vinyl now.
