“Raging River” Sebadoh

Sebadoh will release their first new studio album in more than six years Act Surprised on May 24th via Dangerbird Records. Today, the band shared the video for their new song “raging river,” which shines a light on the prevalence of conspiracy theories and everyday problems caused by anxiety-inducing technology. Jason Loewenstein stated, “Wouldn’t it be great if a big raging river came through here and washed away all the assholes?”

Act Surprised continues the soulful collaboration that’s defined the band since 1991’s Sebadoh III and 1994’s Bakesale. The new batch of songs reaffirms how vital the creative partnership is between members Lou Barlow, Loewenstein, and Bob D’Amico.

When Barlow recently moved back to his home state of Massachusetts following a series of personal changes, he pressed the restart button and, in time, felt the incentive to reach out to Jason and Bob again to reunite and start work on a new album. The trio convened and began recording in their original stomping grounds in western Massachusetts where they first formed back in 1988. Along with producer/sound engineer Justin Pizzoferrato.
