With a new year comes a new start for the band formally known as DB and the Catastrophe. They have spent a good chunk of this winter on their new album Armageddon, have an upcoming tour through the southwest and into Cali set up, and a new identity as the band is now called "Convalescents". Dylan Busby the founder of the group explains the fresh start:
"We have three new members within one year, we have a kick ass record done with Bill Stevenson that the three us (Ben Duncan(drummer), Eric Lehman (Bassist/Back-up Vx), and I) worked really hard on. Then we added Gideon Priegel on guitar and he brings our live show out of this world. This change is something we can stand behind as an entire group, making this no longer a guy with a bunch of people of stage, this makes us a band, one mass idea that we all believe in and work for."
The band had a solid 2011 playing South by South West, North by North East, and CMJ among other successful venue gigs but 2012 is looking like it will be an even stronger year as this band matures and steps out into the limelight they have been preparing for.
Armageddon is a strong piece of work not to go unnoticed by even the most seasoned punk fan. Say hello world, CONVALESCENTS are here and there's no stopping them.
