A MAKING OF THE ALBUM VIDEO AND TEAM UP WITH FUZZROCIOUS PEDALS AHEAD OF INCOMING TOUR DATES, NEW ALBUM,YOU WON’T GET WHAT YOU WANT OUT NOW VIA IPECAC RECORDINGS
Daughters have collaborated with directorAlexander Barton on a short film for the track“City Song“ taken from their new album You Won’t Get What You Want, out now via Ipecac Recordings. A Making Of video has been shared alongside a track by track guide to the album via Louder Sound.Daughters have also teamed up withFuzzrocious Pedals to create a limited edition pedal Empty Glass exclusively available through reverb.com, the pedal was crucial in the making of “City Song” read more from guitarist Nick Sadler below.
“Ryan/ Fuzzrocious came up with a modded version of one of his pedals that he thought might be a useful tool for Daughters. We traded the prototype and new ideas, back and forth, for nearly a year until I was able to sit down and begin applying the Empty Glass to this shelved self-referential percussion pattern. Empty Glass provides almost 100% of the music you hear in City Song – the challenge being in how to turn a simple drone tool into performative music.”
About the film…
Magic Relighting Candle is Alexander Barton’s first Super 8 expose of the trickery of ritual. Alexander Barton is a New York based visual artist whose work centers on the perversions of cultural debris by deconstructing sacred forms and collaging images of degradation. As a friend and collaborator of Daughters, Barton complimented six minutes of experimentation with a familiar household performance to their introductory track “City Song”. The flame teases the hopeful youth and rhythmically refuses his satisfaction. Flickering in and out of grain and noise, disappointment and smoke, Magic Relighting Candle challenges the creative and superstitious.

Daughters is vocalist Alexis Marshall, guitar player Nick Sadler, drummer Jon Syverson and bass player Sam Walker. Following the release of their 2010 self-titled album, the band took an indefinite hiatus, returning in 2013 for a pair of sold out hometown shows in Providence, and a subsequent smattering of live dates in the intervening years, including joining Dillinger Escape Plan for their final live outings in December of 2017. Daughters have been hailed for their visceral performances, both live and on record, with Pitchfork describing them as “manic” and “pummeling” and Punk News pointing to their “frantic energy” and “spastic urgency.”. Upon hearing “Satan,” Revolver said the band had been “…refurbishing their hardcore tool shed with playful, interwoven melodies, full-bodied production and powerful vocals, courtesy of frontman Alexis Marshall,” while Tiny Mix Tapes said the Providence-based outfit’s new music was “better than ever!” – we couldn’t agree more!
