Albums Of The Week: The Callous Daoboys | Celebrity Therapist

Atlanta metalcore maximalists throw everything at the wall — and all of it sticks.

THE EDITED PRESS RELEASE: “Contemplation and self-awareness run throughout Celebrity Therapist. “The whole album is about history repeating itself and how we kind of move in circles. It’s two steps forward and three steps back with a bunch of people in my life. The album is me reflecting on these people but realizing I’m guilty of the same at the end of the record. There are a lot of ‘fuck you’ songs because every heavy band likes writing those. But overall, the lyrics are more introspective and quite loving.”

The Callous Daoboys come from the school of The Dillinger Escape Plan, Every Time I Die and The Chariot, with a heightened degree of theatricality as one of the methods to their madness. Think Panic! At The Disco and Fall Out Boy getting slapped around good-naturedly by Glassjaw. Celebrity Therapist even indulges in a bit of drone and avant-garde post-rock a la Sigur Rós and Radiohead.”
