Nashville indie punks Dad Hats have announced they will be releasing their second full-length, ‘Spill,’ in February next year via Mind Over Matter Records (pre-save). Today, we are excited to share the video for the album’s first single, ‘My Favorite Show Is The Weather Channel.’ The band - which consists of Tyler Coleman (guitar), Joe Halberstadt (drums), Nate Sorg (guitar), and Craig Turner (vocals/bass) - has holed up in a special place where the melodies and textures of The Wonder Years meet The Menzingers’ sense of melancholy. You can watch the video below.
“Growing up, Channel 25 was the Weather Channel, which I watched a lot. I think because I was scared of tornadoes and thought if I learned everything I could about the weather I could stop being scared. It worked for the tornadoes, but it doesn’t work for everything,” says vocalist Craig Turner.
“My Favorite Show Is the Weather Channel was one of the first songs we wrote for our second full-length record,” continues Turner. “I think it’s a great exemplar of the overall intended mood of the album: “Why do I feel like everything is falling apart?”. This song is meant to paint a picture of anxiety, stress, and burnout sneaking up and sabotaging any progress made. The impossible task of trying to get your shit together. The lyrics likely come off as a bit disjointed, but that’s kind of the point. It doesn’t tell a story. It’s about me trying to chill myself out when it’s never that simple.”
