The Usual Riots

I’m digging back into “Dancing For Patriotism” for today’s song. Because I was channeling my inner Dillinger Escape Plan for the album, odd meters and time changes were very abundant throughout the whole proceedings. This tune is a good example of that – the opening riff alternates between 6 and 5 and the sung sections’ riff goes back and forth between 5 and 6. Oddly enough, I found the melody line more difficult to record than the drums in those parts…

Drums recorded by Rich Wattie in Montage Music Hall, Rochester, NY. Everything else recorded at home by me. All instruments, mixing, lead vocals by me. Additional vocals by Adam Donnelly.
