Pardoner Announce Peace Loving People Album
Pardoner announce their new album Peace Loving People, will drop on June 23rd via Bar/None Records (Winter, Ezra Furman). Lead single “Are You Free Tonight?” provides a clear mission statement from the band, careening wildly from warmly nostalgic alt-rock to frantic punk, moving away from prior efforts to mix disparate genres together and instead juxtaposing them sharply against each other. Max Freeland explains the song is “One of many on the album about our generation, the things we do to get by, and how we’re all goin nowhere fast. Kinda shows the 2 poles of our sound, from something warm and saccharine to something more sinister and violent.”
To celebrate the release, Pardoner will bring their blistering live show around the country. Of the release and upcoming tour the band says “it’s a little funny, a little sad, some parts are weird, some parts are normal. We hope you like the record and if you don’t you can throw it around like a frisbee.”
San Francisco based rock band Pardoner was forged by continuing members Max Freeland, Trey Flanigan, and River Van Den Berghe, who stuck together realizing they had an artful, frenetic musical connection and a truly radical friendship. They laid their foundation in 2015 while attending San Francisco State University, but really cut their teeth playing punk shows in the Bay Area, sharing a stage with bands like Meat Market, The Umbrellas, Smirk, and countless other bands.
