Damnably Releases

DAMNABLY033 - Exit Verse - Exit Verse

We are pleased to announce that acclaimed singer & guitarist Geoff Farina (Karate, Secret Stars, Glorytellers) has teamed up with drummer Chris Dye (Speck Mountain, Chin Up Chin Up) and bassist
Pete Croke (Brokeback, Tight Phantoms) to form Chicago’s Exit Verse.
Damnably & EJRC (N.America) release their eponymously titled album on Digipak CD & 12′ White Vinyl (with download code) on  Nov 17th.
The band recorded 9 songs during the summer of 2013 at Minbal in Chicago. Later in the year, Farina flew to Boston to do overdubs and
mix with his long-time collaborator/engineer Andy Hong (Kimchee/Tape Op), and invited Thalia Zedek (Come, Live Skull) to sing on three
tracks and the album was finally mastered by Bob Weston (Shellac/Mission Of Burma) at his Chicago Mastering Service.
Pre-Order NOW and get it as soon as we have them in stock-which is usually before the release date.
