Frog Eyes

Death's Ship
Frog Eyes is an indie art-rock institution from Victoria, BC, Canada. The ten songs on the new album were written by bandleader Carey Mercer on a guitar his father left to him in his will. While Mercer notes that his last couple of records were made "piling tracks on tracks" on a computer, he took a more organic approach to crafting this one, writing the songs on his Martin D-18 acoustic and prepping the vocals before bringing them to the rest of the band. Thematically, Mercer says he "wrote about Joseph Beuys, about B. Traven, about God and Abraham and Isaac, about my dad being addicted to speed."
