We Are The Union : Call in Dead.

Recently I was lucky enough to do some work for the wonderful fellas in We Are The Union, for their new EP: Keep It Down. When discussing the themes of the record, they mentioned that the title is derived from a tale of an epic party that went...off the rails. This led me to wanting to do a design for the record that not only incorporated the ideas from the song, but also pulled from my own experiences as a party jerk. The front cover shows an amp, demolished by all manner of ridiculous things that I have actually seen at weird, loud, obnoxious house parties. The back cover, which serves as a a love letter to all my party crashing, hard-drinkin', rager friends over the years, then more fully relates the how each ludicrous item managed to be embedded and smashed into the amp. Many of the party guests are folks WATU asked me to add in, many more are representations (if not direct portraits of) friends of mine who have shared in the party crashing traditions we started so many years ago. Hope y'all like it. The record is available for sale and download thru Paper + Plastick. And check out We Are the Union, too, as this would have never been possible without their terrific record and trust. Thanks!
