Listen to LOW COAST

You might know Gameface. And you might know Jeff Caudill. But you don’t know Low Coast.

Not that Caudill, erstwhile Gameface frontman and 20-year veteran of the California melodic punk scene, would blame you for not knowing about his new band. In the beginning he wasn’t entirely sure he knew what Low Coast was either.

“I thought I was making an acoustic record,” the frontman says. “But as the subject matter got more broad, the need for more instrumentation grew. I started hearing the songs in my head as big rock songs, and I knew I wasn’t writing a Gameface album, but I also didn’t want to retrace the same old steps as I’d done with my solo records – writing all of the parts and asking people to play them. I needed it to be a true collaboration.”

Caudill recruited guitarist Dave Hemann, drummer Terence Yoshiak (Beat Pharmacy, Black Eyed Peas), and bassist Mike Fratantuno (Black Eyed Peas, and no I’m not making that up), and together they wrote and recorded the 10 songs that make up the band’s slightly awkwardly-titled debut album, ‘Existing The Dream’, due out in May via Spartan Records. Press play below to hear the first taste of that.

Caudill concludes, “I’ve been dreaming about this album for decades, and waiting years to release it. Low Coast is the band I’ve always wanted to have. These guys take my songs to places I could never get to on my own.”

For fans of Death Cab for Cutie, Jimmy Eat World, Wilco, and working things out.
