The Frights Bio

The Frights fourth studio album, Everything Seems Like Yesterday is available now for streaming and download. Produced by bassist Richard Dotson, written and performed by vocalist and guitarist Mikey Carnevale with some sonic assistance from Dotson, it is the band’s most emotionally direct body of work to date.

Everything Seems Like Yesterday first took shape through a handful of songs vocalist/guitarist Mikey Carnevale wrote on acoustic guitar back in fall 2018. Carnevale originally intended to release the material as a solo album, but had a change of heart upon sharing his new songs at a series of shows in San Diego and L.A. After receiving a unanimously positive response from his bandmates, he began to see the songs as more of a natural evolution of The Frights. Carnevale enlisted bassist, Richard Dotson, as producer and the two set off to record at Carnevale’s grandmother’s cabin in Idyllwild, CA. The pair recorded the record in sequence over the course of one week. The record features a wide array of ambient sounds and the use of real-life objects around the cabin as instruments; glasses with water in them, leaves, pots and pans, a ringing phone, etc.

Everything Seems Like Yesterday documents a particularly challenging year of Carnevale’s life. It starts with "24" – The Frights latest studio album, Hypochondriac, was released on August 24, 2018 (Carnevale’s 24th birthday) - and ends with "25". “A lot of these songs are about friends who are gone now, either in the sense that they passed away or that we don’t speak anymore,” Carnevale points out. “Our songs have always involved some kind of looking back over the past, but this one feels like the first time where I’m dealing with those situations and growing from them.”
