Reinvention is usually something that Midwesterners only do by leaving the Midwest: moving to New York City, joining the Peace Corps, or otherwise escaping their current locale. Small town life tends to define you outside of yourself, leaving reinvention to only be possible when a state of anonymity can be reached. Sometimes whether easy or not, reinvention must occur for life to endure. The Early Day Miners new album, The Treatment, speaks to the powers of reinvention in more than one way.
After years of building gorgeous and sprawling guitar rock epics, EDM has trimmed their sound into shorter, tighter songs with a decidedly pop edge to them. They have also slimmed their lineup down from as many as eight members, to the lean four-piece outfit of Dan Burton (guitar, vocals, keys), John Dawson (guitar), Marty Sprowles (drums) and Johnny “Yuma” Richardson (bass). Even in the album’s lyrics, the yearning allure of reinvention is ever present. We now offer the first dose of The Treatment “So Slowly”, a song that speaks of the need to move forward, while not wanting to give up on the past. It is a difficult position that we can all relate too, but also a position that often leads to some of the most fruitful moments of discovery. Read more about The Treatment HERE.
Early Day Miners The Treatment will be available on Secretly Canadian September 22 in the US, and September 21 in the UK. And check out Early Day Miners on tour in SeptemberEarly Day Miners Explore the Powers of Reinvention On New Album, The Treatment. See those live dates HERE.
