Bandaid Brigade the musical project of Zach Quinn (PEARS), Brian Wahlstrom (Scorpios, Gods of Mount Olympus) and friends Paul Rucker (Armchair Martian, Street Dogs, Drag The River) and Chris Fogal (The Gamits) has dropped a new single off the debut album ‘I’m Separate,’ which released on January 21, 2020.

Stream “Holding Steady” here:

Wahlstrom says, “There was a point in the recording session when we ran out of songs we had actually prepared. So each of us had to come up with something while we had a few hours left for tracking drums. Those 3 songs ended up being the album closers and arguably our favorites. This one was mine.”

Recorded at Black in Bluhm Studios in Denver, CO, and co-produced with Fogal, ‘I’m Separate’ finds the members of Bandaid Brigade stretching beyond their collective punk roots with ambitious songwriting, polished arrangements, and a throwback sound that draws some detectable influences from early progressive rock, a heady mix of Springsteen’s attitude, Elton John’s artistic balladry, and classic pop-rock disco grooves echoing ABBA and Earth Wind & Fire.

More about Bandaid Brigade:

Zach Quinn made his name fronting critically acclaimed New Orleans-based hardcore punk band PEARS. Brian Wahlstrom is a classically trained opera singer and pianist whose touring and recording career is rooted firmly in punk rock and has included frequent collaborations with Joey Cape (Lagwagon).

Quinn and Wahlstrom connected on a tour produced by Cape’s label One Week Records, which brings artists into a high energy, week long write-arrange-record process that culminates in a completed album and follow-up touring. The pairing fully leverages the combination of Quinn’s raw edge, Wahlstrom’s finesse, and the lyrical power of dual songwriters.
