Rick Froberg's new band on Sub Pop!
« on: 30 Sep 2008, 18:21 »

Quote from: exclaim!
After the demise of Drive Like Jehu and then Hot Snakes, the bandsí main man Rick Froberg has launched yet another project, Obits, who have recently inked a deal Sub Pop. Frobergís latest New York-based rock outfit are also in midst of recording their debut, which, according to Billboard, is expected to hit sometime early next spring.

Along with Froberg, Obits features guitarist Sohrab Habibion (formerly of Washington, D.C. act Edsel), bassist Greg Simpson and Scott Gursky on the skins. All are reportedly working with Girls Against Boys' Eli Janney and Geoff Sanoff on the groupís as-yet-untitled first album, which is currently being recorded at Brooklyn's Seaside Lounge studio.

Full article here. I dunno if most of you guys knew about this already or not, but this is the first I've heard of it. I am pretty excited. The live songs on their myspace sound somewhat rough, but also pretty promising. I'll definitely be keeping my ear to the ground for more stuff from these guys.

Yeah, I was kind of surprised that John wasn't included in this project. We still have awhile before the album comes out though, so it's still a possibility!

This news is rad. It is rad news.

I have the rip of their first show on my hard drive -- did anyone ever match song titles to the tracks?

i heard they're planning a tour with the night marchers... which means there's potential for a run through some hot snakes/drive like jehu songs at the shows!
