“Eagle Eyes” is a song I’ve had in my head for awhile,” says Chris Farren. “Some years ago I was arrested for trespassing in Sarasota, FL - it was harmless stuff, me and some of the other Fakey P guys were dicking around on the roof of a strip mall, biding the time before our show at the dive bar beneath. One of the other businesses called the cops when they heard us up there, and we were arrested. The song is about the utter desolation I felt during the short night I spent in jail. It didn’t matter that I was there for a pretty silly reason. There is no “Ah, this is no big deal” when you’re in a jail cell -it all feels very NOT OK. All of the mistakes I had made up until that point in my life were pounding in my head. I’m happy to be a part of a cool little thing with Grey Gordon. I really enjoy the record he’s about to put out, and my family has been encouraging me to spend more time with people with face tattoos.”
The upcoming split follow’s Chris Farren’s recent collaboration with Jeff Rosenstock of Bomb The Music Industry! called Antarctigo Vespucci and their debut album, Soulmate Stuff.
Indie-punk singer-songwriter Grey Gordon will be releasing his debut full-length album later this year, but will be warming fans up with new music from Ducks Fly Together in the coming weeks. Following the split’s release Grey Gordon will be hitting the road for a handful of dates with Undesirable People and Hampshire. Dates are listed below.
