Cosmic Thrill Seekers, the new record from Albany punk rock band Prince Daddy & the Hyena, is many things.
It is an odyssey of epic, The Monitor-esque proportions, a great, galloping sonic roadtrip across space and time and Albany, boomeranging around a horn of punk, pop, indie, garage rock, and orchestral, Queen-style arrangements and theatrics; it is an exploration of the fall-out after an acid trip, manic self-destruction, bottoming-out and recovering, and then slipping again; it is a candid, acute documentation of frontperson Kory Gregory’s cyclical mental health states as told through three acts and 14 songs/chapters; it is an existential presentation of eternal return theory, a victory via surrender to impermanence; and perhaps most of all, it is about Dorothy Gale and The Wizard Of Oz.
If you’ve never heard the band before then that sounds quite the introduction right? But believe us, Prince Daddy & the Hyena are the real deal. Having honed their craft in countless sweaty basements with their relentlessly fun, frantic and inclusive live shows, this creative and ambitious band are here with a joyous, cathartic record that’s sure to appeal to punk rock fans everywhere.
This awesome ‘Big Daddy’ bundle is for all you collectors. It contains the double LP, exclusive crewneck sweatshirt AND T-shirt along with a sweet pin to top it all off! Design by Ash Wood - @dontdieclub
