Additionally, Hause has released the music video for “The Flinch,” taken from his latest full-length studio album, Bury Me In Philly. Starring his nephew, Judah, the clip tells the story of Hause discovering the music of The Hooters when he was eight-years-old along with the permanent impression it made on his personal life and chosen career path. The video, which also features live footage from Hause’s recent WXPN “Free At Noon” concert, can be streamed via The Key HERE and YouTube.
Sometimes you have to move forward in order to see where you started out—and the hardscrabble wisdom that one gains from that type of journey forms the backbone of Dave Hause‘s third full-length, Bury Me In Philly. “Punk rock guilt is a real thing,” the lifelong Philadelphian says from his new home in California. “I like to make rock n’ roll music because that’s what I love and I don’t care if Zeppelin or the Stones aren’t cool to the punks … it’s cool to me and that’s what matters.” In that spirit, Bury Me In Philly is a love letter both to his hometown as well as the larger-than-life rock acts he grew up worshiping as a teenager.
“I’ve been sharing stages and singing with Dave Hause for eight years now and he’s still teaching me things I didn’t know. A true diamond in the punk rock rough.” – Frank Turner
For the follow-up to 2013’s Devour, a newly sober Hause holed up in his new home and wrote nearly forty songs, eleven of which would end up as Bury Me In Philly. “One thing I was focused on was trying to make the songs more concise and uplifting than the last record. My last album was a divorce record and during the touring of it I fell in love with my fiancé, moved to California and things got a lot better.” Hause’s newfound perspective allowed him to dig even deeper as a songwriter, whether he’s getting intimately introspective on the tender ballad “Wild Love” or channeling that into shot of sonic adrenaline on monster anthems such as “Shaky Jesus.” From the fuzzed-out boogie of “Dirty Fucker” to the folksy sing-along vibe of “Helluva Home” and the classic rock-inspired groove of “The Mermaid,” Bury Me In Philly may not be an easy album to categorise but it’s a joy to get lost inside.
“Dave is a lifer. He always has his eyes steady focus forward and on making each song better than the last. There’s not going to be a stopping point for Dave; it’s a train going forward. For me, I’ve enjoyed every minute of the ride being his friend.” – Brian Fallon, Solo Artist / The Gaslight Anthem
Affectionately known as “The Songwriters’ Songwriter” by those in the know, Bury Me In Philly has already amounted to over 1,000,000 cumulative plays on Spotify alone and sales of his infamous “Dirty Fucker” line of tour merchandise–which has featured images of both Donald Trump and a shamed New Jersey Governor Chris Christie–has allowed the band to donate thousands of dollars to pro-immigration organizations and refugee causes.
“Dave is a true artist of genuine intention and heart. But I need not tell you this. His purity flows, vibrant, through his songs, his words and his powerful voice. Upon a single listen you know that Dave is the real thing.” – Davey Havoc, AFI
