‘More Scared Of You Than You Are Of Me,’ the eagerly awaited follow-up to 2014’s breakthrough album, ‘Throw Me In The River,’ was written while the band traversed the globe playing music and making friends in countless countries.
From enormous festivals like Reading and Leeds (UK), Groezrock (Belgium) and Splendour in the Grass to stageless squats across Europe and American dive bars, the Smith Street Band have seen it all and they’ve poured those experiences into their boldest and most ambitious release to date.
Recorded in the picturesque surrounds of Stinson Beach, California at Panoramic House, the record also features a world-class cast behind the desk. The sessions were produced by longtime friend and collaborator Jeff Rosenstock, engineered by Jack Shirley (Joyce Manor, Deafheaven, Hard Girls), mixed by John Agnello (Sonic Youth, Dinosaur Jr., The Hold Steady) and mastered by Greg Calbi (Bob Dylan, Ramones, Bruce Springsteen).
Features the singles “Death To The Lads” (#21 on this year’s Hottest 100) and “Birthdays,” this is the band’s first album on their own label Pool House Records.
