Dan Yemin has not one but two bands with new albums out this year: Paint It Black‘s first album in 10 years (and first for Revelation), Famine, as well as the second LP by Open City (which also includes Paint It Black/Ceremony’s Andy Nelson and members of Bridge and Tunnel, Titus Andronicus, and Ted Leo + the Pharmacists), Hands In The Honey Jar. With all this exciting stuff happening in his world, we invited him on the latest episode of the BrooklynVegan podcast.
Throughout our hour-long conversation, we talked about longevity in punk and hardcore, bridging the gap between different generations, writing political/protest music in the face of hopelessness, what it means to Dan to be on Revelation Records, and much more from throughout Dan’s rich history, from the early days of Lifetime to Kid Dynamite to the 20+ years he’s spent playing guitar in Paint It Black.
