As Portland’s bastardized brew crew Drunk Dad prepares to belt the public right in the mouth with the "Morbid Reality" 12” via Eolian Empire on June 11th, today the enablers over at Pitchfork want you to start off the week with a total bender, cracking open a new track from the EP.
Bail early, drink on the job or do whatever you gotta’ do, but be prepared to pay Drunk Dad the “Scum Fee” right here.
The band also recently spilled the song “S.O.U.” at this location.
Drunk Dad is currently getting its shit together for a July tour with local brethren Big Black Cloud, and in the meantime plans on meandering around Pacific Northwest dive bars, with several June gigs locked and more shows coming together.

In a constant barrage of new noise from Portland-based D.I.Y. noisemongers Eolian Empire, the label’s next conquest comes by way of the filthifying new 12” from local metalworkers Drunk Dad. The following press release was issued about the band:
"If they weren't such dirty fuckers they'd be one of the town's shining success stories of unrelenting hard work and dedication: in a surprisingly short time Drunk Dad went from favorite-band-shirts-on-their-hearts-on-their-sleeves to a unique and dynamic fusion of the heavy, the noisy, and the aggro, with a healthy dose of high drama, as they consistently churn out some of the most devastating live sets Portland has seen in years. Complex but in-your-face arrangements, push-pull duel-guitar interplay, searing behind-the-head leads, heavy motherfucking bass, and hard-hitting, tight, technical traps with dynamic, disturbing vocals to hold it all together evolves to ethical scumbaggery at its finest.
"Morbid Reality, the first vinyl release from Portlandian shitstarters Drunk Dad, merges off-kilter sludge/noise the Pacific Northwest perpetuates so well into a drugged-out but aggro vibe; elements of scathing crust-ish degenerate punk brutality of El Dopa or Dystopia are cold-filtered with slow-motion acerbic sludge basslines and noxious riffage with a post-Melvins experimental vibe."
Eolian Empire will drop the four-song "Morbid Reality" on 12” vinyl and digital download this coming June 11th. The track listing is as follows:
