    hello!!

    As LP7/whatever they’re on is rumored to be just around the corner, I wanted to post something to see if anyone else still lurks this forum.

    In fact, if anyone knows what the Sad Dads are going to do next, definitely reply :P.

    Hey!

    It’s been a long, long time since I’ve posted on this forum, but since they are coming back, I figured I’d come back too.
    Hello, everyone!

    Also, they just posted a little song teaser on the website and their social media.
    I’m guessing a new single will come very, very soon. With an album announcement to follow.

    I’m guessing “Sleep Well Beast” and “The System Only Dreams In Total Darkness” are song / album names.

    It’s my birthday so excellent timing. Very exciting. How long until we have pre orders and when are you thinking the album will be out? July/August out? pre-orders in the next two weeks?

    Just having looked at the Youtube teaser, on Youtube, the description has this block of text –

    “americanmary.com x Ntl. x Sleep Well Beast x The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness x Ntl. x Sleep Well Beast x The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness x Ntl. x Sleep Well Beast x The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness x Ntl. x Sleep Well Beast x The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness x Ntl. x Sleep Well Beast x The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness x Ntl. x Sleep Well Beast x The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness x Ntl. x Sleep Well Beast x The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness x Ntl. x Sleep Well Beast x The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness x Ntl. x Sleep Well Beast x The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness x Ntl. x Sleep Well Beast x The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness x Ntl. x Sleep Well Beast x The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness x Ntl. x Sleep Well Beast x The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness x Graham MacIndoe x Michael Brown x Ben Krall”

    Looks like it’s mostly repeating it’s self but you’ll notice 3 names at the bottom. Anyone know the names? Graham McIndoe seems to be a photographer who likely worked on the video I imagine. It’s quite a unique name. Searching Michael Brown brings up the young black man shot by police. Going off the lyrical and tone off the piece we’ve heard would suggest that this isn’t a topic disconnected with the album as it seems to have a strong political stand point. But of course Michael Brown is also a common name. Not finding an awful lot for Ben Krall except posh scaffolding. Doubt it’s a a hybrid Political Scaffolding album.

    Michael Brown is their longtime lighting/multimedia director, he’s worked with Bon Iver, Grizzly Bear, etc., did the lighting on a recent Tom Petty tour, and is the Creative Director of the Eaux Claires festival.

    Ben Krall is also a lighting/video designer: https://www.bkrall.com/credits/

    Sleep Well Beast would be a better album title than The System Only Dreams In Total Darkness, but I have a feeling Sleep Well Beast is the title of the single. So what’s the other one? I don’t know…lyrics?

    I’d guess that Sleep Well Beast is the album title. But it’s just a guess.

    I would agree. I don’t think they would rearrange the entire page for a single.

    There’s also this tweet from Jon Low (engineer) a couple of weeks ago, seemingly talking about masters of the new record — https://twitter.com/heyjonlow/status/857653246013440001. Just because the record might be close to finished, though, doesn’t mean it will be released anytime soon.

    GUYS! Something’s happening.

    If I stay here… trouble will find me… (ie, gonna be around a lot more the next few weeks, haha)

    I’m guessing middle of September release.

    could also be about the new War on Drugs album that’s out later this summer as well.

    The teaser was a great surprise in my inbox this morning. I can’t wait to hear the rest!
