Old Man Winter is a mean-spirited, icy bastard when it comes to thwarting Recovery Council's plans for a CD release show this Friday at RVCC Planetarium in Branchburg, NJ. Under the threat of snow on Friday, the band has decided to reschedule the event for Friday, February 8th, to regroup under safer conditions, and perhaps more subtly, to give a figurative middle finger to Old Man Winter himself.
"When we saw the forecast for the day of the show, it was frustrating news," says guitarist/vocalist Rebeca Qualls. "This event is really special to us, and it means so much having the support of those attending. But we also want everyone to be safe, and we aren't going to let the adversity of weather stop us from the celebration. We will just persevere with our backup plan to move the show to February 8th and hope that with a little extra notice we can give more people an opportunity to see us."
Recovery Council is Qualls on guitar and vocals, along with New Jersey native Jeff Trenholm on drums and Dominican Republic-born Isidro Santos on bass. Since becoming a band in 2011, their collective influences across the spectrum of post-punk, metal, progressive, and grunge genres have lent themselves to their rhythm-driven, melodic style. Plan-Do-Check-Act captures a moment in time where the three musicians' unique styles and backgrounds perfectly intersect as a cohesive whole.
Recovery Council will be hitting the road throughout the winter showcasing music from Plan-Do-Check-Act. A current listing of shows and more on the band can be found at this location.
