Episode 032: Gatsbys American Dream (10-Year Retrospective)

gatsby_cover2_original

We’re serving up another blast from the past this week with a deep dive into Gatsbys American Dream’s beloved album Volcano. Released on April 12, 2005, Volcano was GAD’s debut release for Fearless Records and cemented the Seattle-based band as one of the most intelligent, forward-thinking acts in the scene. The album loosely centered around the story of Pompeii and its volcano, Mt. Vesuvius, while also exploring themes of humanity and emotion in a package that was equal parts mathematical and melodic.

To celebrate 10 years of Volcano, I caught up with frontman Nic Newsham to chat about the album’s origins, how hearing loss contributed to the overall sound, the odds of an anniversary tour, and much more.
