Most audiences recognize Dave Hause as the guitar player of Paint It Black or as the front man of the influential punk band The Loved Ones. He also has an accomplished solo career which was kick started with his heralded 2011 Paper + Plastick debut album Resolutions, a raw and emotional 10-song set that has already become a "must have" in the punk rock community.
“I feel like these are the best songs I’ve written to date,” says Hause of his solo debut. While writing the last two Loved Ones releases (2008’s Build & Burn and 2009’s Distractions), Hause recalls “the songs I was writing at the time didn’t really fit and seemed to be pulling in a different direction, so I figured I would see that through. When songs happen quickly and easily you just kind of have to ride the wave, and before I knew it I had a record’s worth of good tunes that don’t fully fit the Loved Ones paradigm."
Recorded, produced, engineered and mixed by Pete Steinkopf (of The Bouncing Souls), Hause and the Empty Bottles Band recorded drums, bass, mandolin, pedal steel and some guitars at Brian McTernan’s Salad Days studio in Baltimore, while the remaining guitars, organ, keyboard and percussion were recorded at Little Eden Studios in Asbury Park, NJ.
Cuts such as the uplifting “C’mon Kid” and the somber “Melanin” take on a new life with the help of Hause’s backing band, while fan favorite “Pray For Tucson” is still an acoustic number made even more beautiful with the assistance of a pedal steel guitar.
