The Milkwaukee band’s new album, Now That We Are All Ghosts, available now
The Resurrectionists are a band out of Milwaukee, WI, with a sound that has been hailed as “Doom Chamber-Americana” by those in the know.
The group, led by singer-songwriter Joe Cannon, has a new album that just came out this month called Now That We Are All Ghosts. It was engineered, produced and recorded entirely by the band, though they recruited Bob Weston of Shellac to master the final mix at Chicago Mastering Service.
What they ended up with is a powerful slice of sonic cinema that prompted the Resurrectionists–rounded out by bassist Jeff Brueggeman and multi-instrumentalist Gian Pogliano–to create videos for all nine songs on the record. One such tune that’s brought the group’s Dock Boggs-meets-Television aesthetic into a fully realized vision is the darkly orchestrated “Break & Enter Part 2,” which Rock & Roll Globe is honored to premiere today on the site.
“The video is a solo performance of the song while wearing heard-shaped sunglasses in various locations in Louisville, KY,” Cannon explains. “It’s for a song originally written in 2004. There is a ‘Break & Enter Part 1’ performed with a different band. That one is a triumphal little cowpunk ditty about breaking into crappy developers’ construction projects. This one’s about what was really going on — dreadful coping mechanisms while pining after a lost love.”
Now That We Are All Ghosts is out now on Seismic Wave Entertainment on 12” vinyl LP, CD and Digital formats.
