Sci-Fi indie rockers Fellow Robot have stepped into the Halloween season with a new chilling new single titled, “Cemetery Song.” The track, which debuted on CrypticRock.com on Halloween, is the first track to be released from the forthcoming album, The Robot’s Guide to Music Vol. 2. CrypticRock called the song a “mesmerizing piece of music perfect for [Halloween].”
Lead singer Anthony Pedroza had this to say about the track: “I love exploring Cemeteries, especially the ones that scare me. Four years ago while playing a gig at the Sunnyside Cemetery in Long Beach, I thought I read my father’s name on a nearby headstone. After my short set, I walked the grounds with my father’s 1953 Martin acoustic guitar and started singing haunted melody. Cemetery Song is a tribute to death and a gentle reminder that time on earth is fleeting. For our second album we are incorporating some new elements into our songs, and we’re excited to release this eerie rock tune on Halloween Day. We teamed up with some incredibly talented musicians on this track, including Vanessa Acosta on trumpet, Matthew Proffitt on trombone and my brother Andrew on backing vocals.”
Fellow Robot released their debut album The Robot’s Guide to Music Vol. 1 earlier in the year, and have recently partnered with Seattle imprint Donut Sounds to release the album on vinyl. The band celebrated the vinyl release with a packed show at Fingerprints in Long Beach. Fans can order The Robot’s Guide to Music Vol. 1 on vinyl here.
“[The Robots Guide To Music] was a really fun and amazing body of music to record,” says drummer and main collaborator Luis, who also performs as “Ringo” in Beatles tribute band Britain’s Finest. “We worked with some of Long Beach’s best musicians and it was always a treat to be in studio, have a drink or two, and share stories. The recording part was a breeze—when you have musicians that know what they’re doing, all you really gotta do is set up a mic, and let them go at it. We actually recorded 30+ songs (the rest for Volumes 2 and 3), so there was a lot of time in studio.”
The Robot’s Guide to Music Vol. 2 is expected to see an early 2019 release. To stay current with all things Fellow Robot be sure to follow them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
