Constantines, Attack in Black Members Team Up for New Baby Eagle Album
The album is being billed as Baby Eagle & the Proud Mothers, and it features a band that includes Will Kidman of Constantines, Ian Kehoe and Spencer Burton of Attack in Black, and Nick Ferrio. The record was recorded in Toronto at 6 Nassau studio with Jeff McMurrich (Owen Pallett, John K. Samson, the Luyas).
According to a press release, "The sessions captured the newly minted Proud Mothers lineup at the height of its power." With raw production and straightforward lyrics, Bone Soldiers is said to be a "dark and ragged document that smiles equally on Cormac McCarthy and Neil Young's Re-ac-tor."
