Minneapolis natives Household have shared an early stream of their new album, Everything A River Should Be via Substream Magazine ahead of its official release this Friday on Equal Vision Records.
On the album, vocalist Joshua Gilbert shares: “After 2 years of writing, we’re finally able to share these songs with everyone! It means the world, having a label like equal vision to release this album on. The songs reflect the spectrum of human emotion and the cost of relationships. I hope these tracks meet people where they’re at. All we can offer is our experiences and Everything a River Should Be is our representation of this messy but worthwhile life.”
Everything A River Should Be is a record that redefines who and what – and even why – the Minneapolis trio are. Anybody familiar with the music the band – vocalist and bassist Joshua Gilbert, drummer Matthew Anthony, and guitarist Nathanael Olsen – made before will immediately hear the shift in sound of these 11 songs. While the urgency and sincerity of the raw and visceral post-hardcore they began life making remains, Everything A River Should Be is a collection of dense, dark and brooding songs full of a tense, glowering atmosphere.
