One of the most intellectually-stimulating live acts in America today, Golden Bloom have been invited to bring their brand of brain rock poetry to The Outlaw Roadshow New York. They will open the festivities on Thursday 10/15 at the Bowery Electric.
Golden Bloom began as the solo project of multi-instrumentalist Shawn Fogel, who played every part on 2009’s debut full length Fan the Flames and 2011’s March to the Drums EP. During this time, he earned the attention of tastemakers like SPIN, Magnet, and Daytrotter. After years of touring with a band, however, he found that songs had evolved beyond their studio versions, and the musicians he had surrounded himself with added new depth and dimension to the music. On 2013’s No Day Like Today EP, live band members Josh Cohen, Jeff Patlingrao, and Justin Hofmann joined Fogel to hone a new batch of catchy, thoughtful songs, recording for the first time as a full band.
“Golden Bloom had always worked with outside producers and recording engineers in the past,” says Fogel, “but this time we decided to do it all ourselves. Josh had been building his studio for the past few years, and had recorded and produced several albums for other artists [Kayln Rock, Eva Walsh]. We knew it would take a little longer but we were up for the challenge.” Searching for Sunlight did take longer to write and record than they hoped, but in the process, they discovered a better album than the one they initially set out to make. The new record is anticipated for an early 2016 release via Rhyme & Reason Records.
We are absolutely delighted to have Golden Bloom back with us in New York City. The members of this band have danced around the same fires as us many times and we are always the greater for it. Expect to hear some truly wonderful things from the band real soon. We know them to be one of the best going!
