The Juniper Drive is Robert Kramer (guitar/vocals), Blake Burbach (guitar), Evan Morgenson (bass) and myself on drum kit — or, that was the line-up for this album at least. I ended up quitting all my bands last month.
But anyway, now I can 'objectively' say that DAMN this album is good! Robert is the principal songwriter and if you want to know his backstory more, and a little about this band, album, and our past, check out his three-part Prairie Goth interview.
This was our high school band. These songs were written primarily between 2008 and 2010. The album was recorded in 2011. Soon after tracking concluded, we all went away to school in various parts of the country. Due to this separation and other factors, official mixing on the album did not begin until 2015. We'd like to share it with you now in its completion.
Thank you for your patience, Dylan.
Algorillathym’s demos are a breath of fresh air in this new year, a year that will probably be even worse than last year. The music reminds us not to reach deep inside our hearts so that we may add our own special spice to the pizza sauce that is our lifeblood.
I spoke with all six members of North Dakota bands Vanity Plate and the Juniper Drive after they returned from their tour to the west coast.
I got in the van with Bismarck's premier phone booth emo band, Many Months Left, to talk about summoning the positivity of 666 & about how they're maybe on tour right now & I think about the night where she kissed me in the graveyard.
