Acid Dad, a gang of Brooklyn rockers injecting a healthy dose of psychedelia into their livewire punk, dropped their self-titled debut LP back in March. Now, in advance of a sprawling fall tour of North America, the band has shared a brand new single, “Living With A Creature”.

Written and released with the dim, leaf-strewn milieu of Halloween in mind, the stormy, rollicking track conjures images of insomnia and claustrophobia. It all swirls around the song’s central monster, which lives “under my house,” “under my floors”, and, most tellingly, “up in my head.” The accompanying music video channels the song’s bleary melodies and vampiric vocals, with blurry horror clips conjuring the warped TV antennas of yore. To watch the video is to relive those bygone midnights in the TV’s glow, knowing that a little bit of static isn’t enough to keep the Wolfman, Dracula, or Frankenstein from clambering through that screen.

Since forming in 2016, Acid Dad has put out a handful of well-received singles and releases, toured the US and Europe, and shared stages with bands like Oh Sees, Diarrhea Planet, and Night Beats. They’re currently working on LP 2, Out October 26th via Greenway Records

NYC’s Acid Dad released its debut S/T LP in March via Greenway Records, to praise from The New York TimesConsequence of SoundBrooklynVegan & more. A follow-up to 2016’s Let’s Plan A Robbery EP, it showcases the band’s diverse yet accessible sound, from the driving, punk-infused openerDie Hard to the jangly guitars and hazy psych-pop melodies of lead single 2Ci.”

Having just wrapped up a US tour in support of the new release, Acid Dad is gearing up to play Canadian Music Week before heading to Europe for dates in the Netherlands, the UK, and France. Ahead of the tour, they’ve shared a new video for album track “Marine,”

Brooklyn psych punks Acid Dad are set to deliver their highly anticipated debut full-length this Friday, March 9th, via Greenway Records.

New York City’s Acid Dad have quickly established themselves as one of the tightest, tireless, and most energetic bands in the Brooklyn scene. The group “boasts an electric sound that welcomes psychedelia, garage rock, and post punk in constantly varying doses, and a rock ‘n’ roll attitude that screams NYC late ’60s (and at times Manchester late ’80s)” writes The Deli Magazine. Their eponymous debut LP was engineered, mixed and co-produced by Jonathan Schenke (Parquet Courts, The Drums, The Men) and follows-up their well received 2016 EP Let’s Plan A Robbery.

The 11-tracks that finally made it onto the album Acid Dad are well worth the wait and effort. The band turns to influences as far ranging as Bob Dylan (“Die Hard”) and Archers of Loaf (“2Ci”) in surprising ways, creating songs that are as lyrically intriguing as they are musically enthralling. The band describe in one sentence the idea behind the song



“Die Hard”: Don’t like New Years resolutions, backroom politics, or drunken orangutans.



“2Ci”: Post 6AM rave on a accidental synthetic overdose.

“Mr. Major”: Inspired by our indecipherable Russian delay unit and propaganda.

“Child”: A companion piece to anyone having just moved into a metropolis prison.

“Come Outside”: Arguably the most dad rock by way of Nassau Coliseum song on the record.

“Marine”: A sharp stoned march to the emergency room.

“Mistress”: Below freezing lab rat in a constricting relationship with another frozen lab rat twice its age.

“Bada Bing”: Hard hat striking, bull riding, sweaty little peach fuzzing teenage anthem.

“Mow My Lawn”: Being forced to mow your lawn on a Sunday.

“No Answer”: Cops!

“Dissin’”: Is this alternative country? I think so.

Acid Dad will support their debut with a large spring tour, including newly announced European dates for May.

Whether they’re droning into the haze of “Mow My Lawn” or storming towards freedom on “Mistress”, Acid Dad balance dynamic melodies and unhinged punk with such precision that you’ll never find yourself bored.

Acid Dad first appeared in the New York scene in 2016. After spending the year self-releasing demos recorded at their studio in upstate New York, the band garnered local praise from the likes of Oh My Rockness, Consequence of Sound, BrooklynVegan, Stereogum and more. At the outset of 2017, the band began writing, demoing and recording with the intention of creating their debut full length. Now part of the Greenway Records family, their debut LP is slated for a March 2018 release followed by a world-wide tour. NYC’s Acid Dad are following 2016’s Let’s Plan A Robbery EP with their self-titled debut album on March 9th via Greenway Records . As their name hints, Acid Dad are a psychedelic rock band, but they don’t get too trippy. Lead single “2Ci” is just a catchy dose of guitar pop, and you can check that one out now.
