Dead Fish Handout 2013

How’d you all enjoy the Dead Fish Handout we posted a couple weeks ago? Did it make up for last year? Do you want another?

This is our interpretation of U2′s “Stay (Faraway, So Close!)”. It’s one of those songs you wish you wrote for it’s brilliance. Enjoy!

We’re all caught up now on Dead Fish Handouts, until next time.

Dead Fish Handshake – “Guilt”

A special post for our Kickstarter supporters…

Hey all, Rob here.

It’s been a little while since we’ve posted here. As we wind down the year, I wanted to take the opportunity to thank you all for sending us out on the road this Summer. It was a memorable experience and we met some incredible people.

By now, most of you have received your Kickstarter packages that you signed up for. However, a few, including the covers EP, is still in process. Without going into full detail, I’d like to apologize on behalf of DFH for the delay. I’ve had a rough go at it on the personal front which has slowed down production in the studio. I’d rather keep it at that, but assure you that we are working hard to complete the songs and expect them to be in your hands and ears in early 2014. Also, on the horizon are some new songs, new shows and more. I never wanted this delay to be a sign of lack of appreciation. I hope it hasn’t come off as such.

In the meantime, let me tell you a little about the very first song that Matt and I ever wrote – a song called “Guilt”. Back in the early days of writing what would become Dead Fish Handshake’s debut EP, we had about 10 song ideas floating around, six of which eventually got narrowed down for inclusion on “Across State Lines”. “Guilt” was one of my favorites – a sure shot to make the record or so it seemed, but we couldn’t decide between this originally stripped down, intimate recording or a full blown electric version. In the end, others came together and found their way onto “Across State Lines”, leaving no room for “Guilt” or the other few that were in contention. We’re very happy to be able to share this with you.

As part of this Kickstarter, we want to say thank you and offer a glimpse of the early days. I can still remember being in the room on a cold December afternoon watching and hearing this song come to life in a matter of moments. We hope you enjoy this.

-Rob
