Spread out across both the United States and two continents, Narrows exists despite geographical inconveniences for the sole purpose of creating devastating noise. Though outside obligations will most likely relegate the live Narrows experience to a truly rare event, the shared need to exorcise their collective demons fuels the trans-global project. Dave Verellen (Botch, Roy), Rob Moran (Unbroken, Some Girls, Over My Dead Body), Ryan Frederiksen (These Arms Are Snakes, Nineironspitfire), Jodie Cox (Tropics, Rohame, Bullet Union), and Sam Stothers (Makeout Boys, Quarantine) are busy men with busy lives. The Narrows project is not meant to define and drive their individual lives. Rather, the band serves as a respite; a rare opportunity to escape; a vengeful howl from the basest corner of the psyche. In those rare moments when the five men find themselves in the same city, the quintet seizes the opportunity to combine their disparate talents to craft their unique brand of aural malice. Narrows will be playing shows in Europe in March and May – check out the tour dates below.
Additionally, you can now download a live set from Narrows for free! Deathwish Live Series 06 features Narrows performing live on Hannah Levin’s “Seek & Destroy” Radio show on KEXP 90.3 FM Seattle, September 26th, 2010. The recording was engineered by James Nixon and features the songs “Chambered”, “Gypsy Kids”, and “Life Vests Float, Kids Don’t”. It’s truly a fantastic recording, full of the hair raising energy and punishing volume that Narrows are known for. Special thanks to KEXP for contributing this recording.
