Dads – I’ll Be The Tornado
Released October 14 on 6131 Records (buy here)
It took maybe a little too long to get this review posted, but better late than never or whatever forever. We don’t follow the rules here at Abandon Hip.
I’ll Be The Tornado is the second full-length released from Michigan punk duo Dads (they aren’t actually dads), and it’s a bit of a split from their earlier work. I’m only a recent convert to fatherhood (is that what it’s called when you’re a Dads fan?), but I think this record is a positive move for these guys. I’ve had a tough time listening to anything else but I’ll Be The Tornado since its release. There’s little regard for any genre here, and every track has its own particular vibe. Uncomplicated, heartfelt lyrics and more mature songwriting make this an overall stellar record (continued below).
