Scissormen Wanted Weird Sounds For New Album: Scissormen News
It was released at the end of last month, with Drozdowski, bassist Sean Zywick and drummer Pete Pulkrabek joined by Grammy-nominated organist Paul Brown and soul singer Mighty Sam McClain, who died in June.
Drozdowski says: "I wanted every song on this album to tell a story and be deeply rooted in great American music. I also wanted to apply more elaborate production techniques, like multi-tracking my guitars and treating them with multiple effects during and after recording to create a broader, unpredictable sonic palette - and just plain get weird."
He continues: "That weird streak is what made the pillars of American music - Muddy Waters, Bill Monroe, Sam Phillips and others - original, authentic and evolutionary." Read more and stream the song "Letter From Hell" here.
