Dave Hause Taps Matt Skiba, the Watson Twins, Frightened Rabbit Members for 'Devour'
Two years after Dave Hause released his solo debut, Resolutions, the sometimes Loved Ones leader is set to deliver a follow-up. The record, titled Devour, drops October 8 via Rise Records.

A press release for the 12-song set notes that it was recorded and mixed at Hollywood's Grandmaster Recorders LTD, with Andrew Alekel and Mitchell Townsend handling production duties. The record purportedly runs on a theme "that it is inherently American to have an insatiable appetite," and touches on how said appetite can become an obstacle in our daily lives. Opening track "Damascus" serves "to establish the notion that things don't always work out the way we hope," with remaining tracks focusing on relationships. Joining Hause throughout the LP are Frightened Rabbit's Scott Hutchison, the Watson Twins, Alkaline Trio's Matt Skiba and more.

Beneath the track listing, you'll find a stream of first single "We Could Be Kings," courtesy of Rolling Stone, with whom Hause shared the following statement about the track: "Growing up in a working-class neighbourhood in America in the 1980s involved all kinds of promises. If you believe in this God, if you go to this school, if you work hard, if you are a good person. . . you could seemingly have it all. Seeing what those promises and expectations really shook out to be for so many people is a very different scenario than what was hoped for. This song ["We Could Be Kings"] is for those people."
