Bandaid Brigade To Release Debut Album

originally published: 01/12/2020

Bandaid Brigade To Release Debut AlbumBandaid Brigade the musical project of Zach Quinn (PEARS), Brian Wahlstrom (Scorpios, Gods of Mount Olympus) and friends Paul Rucker (Armchair Martian, Street Dogs, Drag The River) and Chris Fogal (The Gamits) will release their debut album 'I'm Separate' on January 21, 2020.

Recorded at Black in Bluhm Studios in Denver, CO, and co-produced with Fogal, the album finds the members of Bandaid Brigade stretching beyond their collective punk roots with ambitious songwriting, polished arrangements, and a throwback sound that draws some detectable influences from early progressive rock, a heady mix of Springsteen's attitude, Elton John’s artistic balladry, and classic pop-rock disco grooves echoing ABBA and Earth Wind & Fire.

Bandaid Brigade says: "It's quite possible that this is the best album ever made. We hope you like it as much as we think you think we think we do."

Bandaid Brigade consists of Zach Quinn - Guitar, Bass, Vocals; Brian Wahlstrom - Keys, Vocals; Paul Rucker - Drums; and Chris Fogal - Guitar. Special guests include Saxophone - Joe Cardillo; Cello - Lief Sjostrom; Violin - Olivia Shaw; and Vocals - Sandi King.

Zach Quinn made his name fronting critically acclaimed New Orleans-based hardcore punk band PEARS. Brian Wahlstrom is a classically trained opera singer and pianist whose touring and recording career is rooted firmly in punk rock and has included frequent collaborations with Joey Cape (Lagwagon).

Quinn and Wahlstrom connected on a tour produced by Cape’s label One Week Records, which brings artists into a high energy, week long write-arrange-record process that culminates in a completed album and follow-up touring. The pairing fully leverages the combination of Quinn’s raw edge, Wahlstrom’s finesse, and the lyrical power of dual songwriters.
