The Departed Adventus on 2LP + MP3 Download
Adventus is the Latin word for arrival. And so Cody Canada and The Departed emerge with their first original album. Upon the disbanding of Cross Canadian Ragweed, The Departed took root; Cody Canada and his long time Ragweed bandmate, Jeremy Platon on bass and vocals, with Seth James on guitar and vocals (Seth James Band, Ray Wylie Hubbard), Steve Littelton on B3 organ and keys (Live Oak Decline, Stoney LaRue & the Arsenals, Medicine Show) and Chris Doege on drums (Seth James Band).
The band members had spoken reverentially of each other's musicianship before getting together almost two years ago. But make no mistake, Adventus is anything but a relic of the past. It rocks hard, it burns in the Southern sun, and it represents a new era of creative growth, tapping into the eternal emotions and sonics that have informed the great American musical styles from the start.
The Departed are excited to be playing together, stoked about the new beginning that Adventus, their first studio album of original material provides. This is the follow-up to last year's Oklahoma homage, The Is Indian Land, which celebrated seminal Red Dirt writers' music. Putting an album out of cover material provided the time for the band members to start melding an ethos of their own. 2LP-set from Thirty Tigers Records.
