Fred day is the best day. Another burner is out now for your listening pleasure, taken from Aftering, Fred Thomas' forthcoming album. Stereogum has premiered "House Show, Late December," "an arresting eight-minute opus that finds its footing somewhere between the cadence of slam poetry and a stream-of-consciousness narrative." Watch the lyric video below created by Cory Hearns. Fred gives some context to how the idea for this track & clip came about:

"Cory expressed interest in making a lyric video for one of the songs from my new record and picked this one; an 8 minute, dirgey, bleak as hell spoken word piece about having panic attacks at house shows or at Target. He totally got the desperation, stillness and weariness and reflected it perfectly in this video."

"House Show, Late December" features an all-star contributing cast with members of Wolf Eyes, Bonny Doon, and Deadbeat Beat. Make your way to our E-Store to pre-order your copy of Aftering ahead of its September 14th release date, plus some undeniably sick Fred merch awaits you.
