Oh, Common Life (stylized as (oh), common life. is the third studio album by American rock band Fireworks. After the release of their previous album, Gospel (2011), the band went on hiatus. During this hiatus the band wrote and demoed new material. In the summer of 2013 the band returned to the studio, with Brian McTernan producing. The band's next album was announced in January 2014 and was released a couple of months later through Triple Crown
Oh, common life has somehow sunk its teeth into me, so I suck the venom out of my fingers until they bleed," David Mackinder sings in the Detroit rock band Fireworks' new album, 'Oh, Common Life,' out March 25 on Triple Crown Records. The album comes after the band - Mackinder, guitarist Chris Mojan, bassist Kyle O’Neil, guitarist Brett Jones, keyboardist Adam Mercer and drummer Tymm Rengers - took a temporary hiatus following their 2011 album 'Gospel' to return to "common" life
Oh, Common Life is one of the most legitimately sad records I’ve come across of late, its irrepressible tunefulness never deflecting the pain within or mocking it, instead signifying a resilience reflecting the reality that the world doesn’t stop for your crises regardless of impotent longing ( The Back Window’s Down ), alcoholic escape ( Flies on Tape ), and. self-pity ( One More Creature Dizzy With Love )
Stream the album below, and tell us what you think. The band are touring North America with the Wonder Years, Real Friends, Citizen and Modern Baseball. You can check out the full list of remaining dates below the album stream.
Fireworks - Oh, Common Life. March 17, 2014 by Brendan Manley. Thematically, the album feels like a natural progression since the bittersweet nostalgia and gig-life growing pains expressed on Gospel; Oh, Common Life is certainly a harsher, more sobering look within, like when Mackinder sings, I use metaphors to write about what I really should say aloud, in Haunts, but it also feels both un-forced and intimate, with the understated melancholy of.
