It’s been quite a little while since we’ve filled you in on what we’ve been up to, so we thought an update was in order.
We’ve been away from the live circuit for a bit because we really wanted to focus on crafting some new music. And so, we’re happy to say that we’re knee-deep in writing our new record which we hope to release in the coming months. There are a lot of really cool sounds and songs being written and we’re proud of how everything is coming along. Some of it familiar; some different; but it’s all very DFH.
In the meantime, behind the scenes, we’re trying to figure out the right way to bring these songs to life. We hope to get into the studio very soon. We’ll have more information on that as we get it.
That’s all for now. We miss you all and really hope to see you again.
As we wind down the year, we wanted to wish everyone a great holiday. We had an awesome 2015, all thanks to all of you that continue to support us. Looking forward to more fun in the new year. We’ve been holed up in our studio writing the next [long overdue] DFH release which we hope to release in 2016.
In the meantime, as tradition, we jumped into the recording studio for our annual Dead Fish Handout. We love digging into our various different influences and bands we enjoy when trying to narrow down the list of possible songs to cover. This year was no different. We took to an acoustic version of a song called “The Scientist” by Coldplay. It’s a very chill song with a little bit of DFH to it.
We hope you enjoy it.
Thanks again for the continued support.
See you all again in 2016.
’round this time, every year, we jump in the studio for an acoustic take of a song or artist that we are fans of. It began back in 2010 with and we’ve done one every year since. We record the song and send it out to you, our DFH Family. And so on Christmas morning, a new Dead Fish Handout awaits in your email inbox. It’s a simple “thank you” to all the people who continue to support us and allow us to do what we do. We appreciate it more than you know.

Writing and sifting through ideas for the long overdue DFH follow-up record has kept us busy. We have some pretty rad stuff we’ve cooked up. Some different. Some right in line with what you’d expect from DFH.
We’re starting to narrow the list down in order to demo some of it with hopes of hitting the studio very soon.
In the meantime, we shot a performance video for “NOTHING STAYS GOLD” which will be out soon. Here’s a little taste of it. (directed by Chino Marin).
We’re inching closer and closer to heading back into the studio to get started on a long-overdue new record, but we have an evening in New York City before that happens. Join us on October 16th at Slake | NYC with our friends, Syka.
