Lancaster, Pennsylvania troubador Ben Liebsch will return with his 'Dogged' EP next week. Yep, you guessed it: we've got an early stream.
You might not have hear of Ben Liebsch, but you should have heard of his band You, Me, And Everyone We Know. Ben's been knocking around in some form for almost a decade, and despite years of struggling with addiction and mental health issues that nearly cost him his life (not to mention the exodus of five band members back in 2011), he's bringing the project back in 2015 for a new EP.
The 'Dogged' EP is set for release next week through Rude Records, but we've done that thing we LOVE to do where we hook up a stream a week early so you can try before you buy. So, if you're a fan of pop-rock with a narcissistic, bent twist, you'd do well to give this one a spin using the Deezer player below.
Speaking of the release, Liebsch has said: "I’m just picking up where I left off. I needed to take time off to figure out who I was and what my motivations were in making music. This band and its songs tell the story of my journey: one of an abused alcoholic with a penchant for depression and self deprecation, holding on to his misanthropically optimistic view of the world as he marches ever forward. I guess I’m just trying to show the world who I am, who we all are."
'Dogged' is released through Rude Records in the UK and Europe on March 17. You can pre-order it now from the Rude Records store or iTunes.
While you're here, take a look at the lyric video for 'Does It Amaze Thee?' It's pretty clever.
