Atlanta's heavy, experimental-rock quintet O'Brother has been hitting the road hard in 2012. Rocks Off covered the band's headlining gig at Warehouse Live back in March, and tomorrow the band rolls into town once again, this time supporting Thrice on that band's farewell tour.
It's been a busy few months for a reason. O'Brother's debut album, Garden Window, has been met with nearly unanimous critical praise since its release last November. The record features a dynamic blend of distorted grunge, furious metal and dreamy alternative rock that breathes, swells and shifts uncomfortably like an insomniac trying desperately to fall asleep. It's loud, it's different and it's 100 percent buzzworthy.
Rocks Off caught up with O'Brother singer/guitarist Tanner Merritt this week to talk about the tour, MTV and the band's summertime plans.
