As soon as I heard the upcoming OLTH album 'Every Day is Someone's Special Day' I knew it was something special. And with repeat listens came an even further appreciation for the absolute chaos and visceral bombshell that is their sound. After jumping at the chance to release their debut on cassette, I asked Danny (guitar) and Sean (vocals/lyrics) to have a chat with me. We discussed their upcoming release on June 1st, 2023 via Zegema Beach Records as well as: the best and worst of The Grateful Dead, getting into screamo, the Loma Prieta legacy, the poppiest of screamy bands, lyrical themes for 'Every Day is Someone's Special Day', the band's favourite OLTH songs, hearing Elliot Smith for the first time, better than Alexisonfire, new OLTH, collaborative music and breaking out of habits, etc. Bands played in this podcast: Elliot Smith, In Reverent Fear, Infester, Loma Prieta, Senses Fail, and Stuntman.
