Frontman Barry Johnson along with co-founding guitarist Chase Knobbe, new drummer Pat Ware - and longtime bassist Matt Ebert wrote enough songs to fill a full length, and then worked to get songs lifted from emails between Johnson and one of his musical hero Impossibles’ guitarist/vocalist Rory Phillips, with whom he had been co-writing long distance, to match the ones written at full volume. (“Bedroom charm versus live rock band,” Johnson explains.) If 2016’s Cody was about growing up, then Kill Me is about what happens next - the reckonings with love, money, doubt and confusion, and the hope that persists despite it all.
