Atlanta based band, The Callous Daoboys recently passed through the Bay Area and gloop was there to catch up with the group. Tune in on Sunday, July 2nd @ 4PM to hear their conversation before the band destroyed Neck of the Woods in SF.
The Callous Daoboys come from the school of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die, and The Chariot, with a heightened degree of theatricality as one of the methods to their madness. Think Panic! At The Disco and Fall Out Boy getting slapped around good-naturedly by Glassjaw. Celebrity Therapist even indulges in a bit of drone and avant-garde post-rock a la Sigor Rós and Radiohead.
Contemplation and self-awareness run throughout the group’s new album, Celebrity Therapist. “The whole album is about history repeating itself and how we kind of move in circles. It’s two steps forward and three steps back with a bunch of people in my life. The album is me reflecting on these people but realizing I’m guilty of the same at the end of the record. There are a lot of ‘f@#k you’ songs because every heavy band likes writing those. But overall, the lyrics are more introspective and quite loving.”
