To herald the announce, Ohtis release the album track “Rehab.” The band's Sam Swinson notes, “Rehab was a fox hole prayer, a lot of the songs On the Record were. I grew up in an American Christian church that believes in a Santa Claus God, always saying please do this or that, please give us this or that. So naturally when I was hating myself for being a hopeless junkie fuck up I went begging him to make me good. When I did it was usually slightly tongue in cheek, because I hadn't believed in Santa Claus for a long time and I had been listening to the Louvin Brothers a lot so I understood the value of Old Testament irony. I wrote it at my friend Jimmy's house in South Carolina. He'd bought me a bus ticket to come from Stone Mountain Georgia where I'd spent a few days sleeping under a bridge, begging people at Subway for change to get drunk on Steel Reserve. I was stranded there after being kicked out of a type of Christian work camp called Teen Challenge which operates under the guise of being a treatment center. They had me digging graves at a grave yard 12 hours a day everyday except Sundays, which was reserved for letting the lord do his work on us. I ended up drunk driving Jimmy's truck into a ditch and he sent me on my merry way. Needless to say I was feeling very bad about myself which produced this emo country song.” (more...)
