It’s time for Opposite Day to rock at you again! It’s been since August, people.

Since the departure of the beloved Pat Kennedy from Opposite Day in June, we began auditioning new drummers. Then, immediately after Pat’s last show, Sam got a bad infection which caused partial temporary facial paralysis and tinnitus and a serious case of not feeling like doing a whole lot for a couple months.

Thanks to the gracious drummage of Dave Irish and the miracle of modern medicine, the band was able to keep their commitments in August and do a mini tour up to Illinois and Missouri plus a cool Voyager show at Sidewinder, however drummer auditions and booking took a back seat to healing and not canceling stuff.

Now that December has arrived and 2016 is coming to a welcome end, Opposite Day would like one last chance to rock you and show off our NEW DRUMMER, Eoghan McCloskey.

the end of an era

Our show on June 11 at Empire Control Room will be our last one with the amazing drummer/percussionist Pat Kennedy. Pat has been an energetic collaborator and friend for 11 years. The band will continue on, made infinitely better by his massive contributions to our catalog and his raising the bar on our musicianship and songwriting. Do yourself a favor and go see him in one of his other projects soon! And stay tuned for the next full-length album that he contributed to. We are presently trying out new collaborators, and will be back full-force in August.

New Review of STR2 from France

Jean Philippe has been a big supporter of the band for many years, and recently put up a nice French-language review of our latest album Space Taste Race Part 2. Someday we’ll need to tour the Strasbourg area and hear the local sounds. They obviously have great taste there!Screen Shot 2016-05-12 at 2.28.51 PM
