Band Marks The Return of William Goldsmith (Sunny Day Real Estate, The Fire Theft, Foo Fighters)
Debut Album ‘Intermission’ Set For Release on April 9 Watch teaser video here.
The project marks the official return of drummer William Goldsmith, who ten years ago, walked away from a successful music career that included stints as a founding member of Sunny Day Real Estate, The Fire Theft, and Foo Fighters. Together with his Assertion bandmates, guitarist/vocalist Justin Tamminga (Blind Guides, Dying Trades) and, bassist Bryan Gorder, Assertion’s debut LP, ‘Intermission’, is real, propulsive, and earnest. The album conjures more connections to the heady grit and soaring grind of the 90’s. Driving guitars anchored by a frenetic rhythm section. A haunting vocal delivery concealing a heartfelt sentiment. Track-by-track, the record builds into a dark and heavy crescendo but unpredictably retreats into delicate and fragile moments in masterful ways.
