Blind Adam and the Federal League have shared a cover of the Dawes song "All Your Favorite Bands”.

“The song ‘All Your Favorite Bands’ by Dawes became one of my favorites over the past few years," says Adam Gorgola. "I was missing friends, going to shows, and being on the road - hoping we would get back to it someday. We delayed the release of our last album, An Act of Desperation, in the wake of Covid-19 to focus on mutual aid and solidarity with the uprisings that broke out in response to the murder of George Floyd by the Minneapolis Police. We weren’t sure what 2022 was going to look like as a band, since our planned shows had been canceled, so when we got the offer to support The Bouncing Souls on this tour — we kind of joked about turning ‘All Your Favorite Bands’ into a punk rock song as a tribute to everyone we have connected with through music over the years.”

Blind Adam and the Federal League is comprised of Adam Gogola (Vocals/Guitar), Alex Simotes (Bass/Vocals), Ellie Z (Lead Guitar/Vocals), Athen Erbter (Drums), Tim Schumann (Guitar/Backup Vocals), and was produced by Dan Tinkler (Wandering Birds). They have respectively played in bands such as Article 57, The Night Brigade, Badwater Sound, Boob Sweat, Ugly Flannel, and Loss Leader. This single is coming off their 2021 sophomore album, An Act Of Desperation, produced by engineer Chris “#2” Barker of Anti-Flag.

The band has some upcoming with Bouncing Souls. All tour dates are mentioned below.

“The Bouncing Souls really put the wind back in our sails," states Gorgola about the tour. "We weren’t sure what we were going to be able to do as a band in 2022; we don’t have a booking agent, and it was hard to know when to start booking shows during the Omicron wave. The Bouncing Souls have been one of our favorite bands since we were kids and have been super supportive of all my bands over the years. The nickname ‘Blind Adam’ was actually given to me by Bryan Kienlen, the bassist of the Bouncing Souls.”
