Midnight Masses Premiere AM I A NOMAD with the AV Club
Midnight Masses recently announced the July 22nd release of their debut album Departures and they are thrilled to be premiering their first new track in the US with the AV Club. "Am I A Nomad?" can be heard exclusively via the link below.
When asked about the song Autry had this to say:
The album chronicles moments out of a whole 'day,' from sunrise to midnight. 'Am I A Nomad?' takes place mid-morning, and was written towards the end of an international tour. At the time I was reflecting on how life as a touring musician is a nomadic one; and how I often feel more comfortable on the road than stationary. It's a feeling I've had my whole life. I've never felt at home anywhere. I'm starting to think I feel most at home constantly traveling everywhere.
The album features contributions from some notable musicians including Haley Dekle (Dirty Projectors), Isaiah "Ikey" Owens (The Mars Volta, Jack White's Los Buzzardos), Peter Hale (Here We Go Magic), Jaleel Bunton (TV On The Radio), Mauro Refosco (Atoms For Peace) & Jamie Miller (...Trail of Dead).
Autry comments on the band:
Midnight Masses is my longest standing creative project and I'm privileged to have my bandmates in ...Trail of Dead occasionally join in as well as have so many other friends contribute. What started off as a therapeutic way for me to reflect and document the death of several family members and friends has turned into a musical endeavor that draws not just from grief, but the recognition of life. I've been heavily influenced by many musicians and visual artists along the way, and intend to convey the story of loss, self-discovery, and hope that permeates throughout.
Midnight Masses was started in the spring of 2008 by Autry Fulbright and Jason Reece shortly after the death of Autry's father. The sudden loss compelled Fulbright to seek solace through music and travel with his friends. One of his friends was Gerard Smith of TV On the Radio who had recently begun documenting various Brooklyn musicians in his home studio. Midnight Masses quickly grew from a bedroom project to a multi-media collective with a revolving cast of musicians, filmmakers, and visual artists with Jason Reece contributing when not occupied with ...And You Will Know Us By The Trail of Dead.
Midnight Masses is: Autry Fulbright II, Hugo Vargas-Zesati, Jason Reece and Jordan Marecek
