NEW ALBUM AND 5 QUICK QUESTIONS WITH THE WASHERS

To quote the band bio "The Washers' sound isn't forthrightly rock and roll, country, folk, or any other discerning genre you want to place it directly in….it bounces from each to the next, floats somewhere between, and fits easiest in the ever-changing boundaries of music called Americana". No way I could have said it better.

I took notice of the band with the release of their second album Tired Eyes in 2012. That album was full of catchy tunes and great harmonies woven throughout well written songs that went to prove these guys know what works for them. With  their upcoming release Everything at Once The Washers have only shown that they have gotten better with time and continue fine tune their sound.

Everything at Once runs through the usual song subject matter of love, love lost, small hometowns and big dreams. The band's sharing of lead vocal duties though helps to keep the album fresh and keeps the listeners ear. No matter who is in charge of lead vocals the band never skips a beat and it is a seamless transition that adds great variety and manages to change the album's tone and mood to match each song as the album runs it's course.

The song "Pennies" below will be the first single off of the album that is due out 9-2-2014. This is just a small sample of what is in store on this album, so make sure you pick it up on release day.




The Washers are: Todd Janik (guitar/vocals), Matt Kopycinski (bass/vocals), Justin Wade Wilcox (guitar/banjo/steel guitar/vocals) and Mike Faltysek (drums)

Todd took time last week to sit down and answer our RDBC 5 Quick Questions.

1. Pirates or ninjas? Why?

TODD: It’s a pirate’s life for me, dude. My grandmother made me a pirate costume for Halloween when I was a kid and my mom swears I didn't take it off for like 2 years.

2.What is the stupidest thing that you have done in front of a crowd?

TODD: I’ve forgotten the lyrics to my own songs on several occasion, I guess that’s pretty stupid. And I’m definitely not pro enough to pull it off…I just end up humming along or filling in spots with words like “cheeseburger”.

3.If you were in a witness protection program, what would be your alias?

TODD: James Hetfield. Yes, I like Metallica.

4.If you could meet anyone, alive or dead, who would it be?

TODD: Jack Black— preeeeeetty sure we would be best friends.

5. Most guilty pleasure song in your collection.

TODD: You’re gonna kill me on this one…Florida Georgia Line- Round Here. A very guilty pleasure indeed, but so damn catchy!
