About Hypochondriac by The Frights

The Frights' new album Hypochondriac is available now. This is the third full-length from San Diego’s fearsome foursome and their debut for Epitaph Records.

To give fans another taste of the new album, The Frights have shared the single and video of “Me And We And I”— a song whose candid lyrics, playful instrumentation and bittersweet melody perfectly capture the tone of Hypochondriac. The video was directed by the band’s own Richard Dotson along with Jason Link who had also teamed up for their most recent video for “CRUTCH.”

Hypochondriac is the most comfortable I’ve been with a record thus far,” says Mikey Carnevale, vocalist/guitarist for The Frights. “I care a lot about these songs because they’re embarrassing and personal.”

Produced by FIDLAR frontman Zac Carper (SWMRS, Dune Rats), mixed by Rob Kinelski (Ed Sheeran, Billie Eilish, 30 Seconds To Mars) and mastered by multiple Grammy Winner Greg Calbi (Arcade Fire, Tame Impala, The War on Drugs); Hypochondriac follows The Frights’ 2016 album You Are Going To Hate This and marks a period of major creative growth for the band (whose lineup also includes bassist Richard Dotson, drummer Marc Finn, and guitarist Jordan Clark).

“I had started to brainstorm where I wanted to go with this record basically the day we released You Are Going To Hate This,” says Carnevale. “At first, I overthought the hell out of it, due to coming down from the high of making our first real album in a real studio with a real producer. So it took about a year or so until I realized that I’m not special and I just forced myself to sit down with an acoustic guitar. What came of that, I think, is a confessional album that I never assumed a band like ours would make.”

A couple of months after graduating from high school, Mikey Carnevale (vocals/guitar) and Richard Dotson (bass) got together as The Frights to play a one off 30 minute set as sort of a joke. The feeling they got from the crowd in their hometown of San Diego inspired them to become a "real" band almost in spite of themselves. Along the way, they recruited Marc Finn (drums) and released You Are Going To Hate This (produced by Zac Carper of FIDLAR) in February 2016. Jordan Clark (guitar) added to the band's musical prowess in the ensuing year of touring around North America. Having recently made their highly successful UK debut with headline shows in London and appearances at The Great Escape and Dot To Dot, The Frights can’t wait to play their new material on the Hypochondriac North American tour this fall.
