Call it fate, call it fortune, call it the all-wise guiding-goddess Hand of Rock ‘n’ Roll, because any way you cut it, Gazebos was meant to be. Ever since the motley quartet of Seattle music-scene lifers came together in 2014, Gazebos has been a shining beacon of the city’s live-music landscape, their performances raucous and cathartic and hilarious, uniting the tribes under a banner of unabashed and unabridged fun. Now—finally!—Gazebos have an album out, their debut for Hardly Art Records, and nobody will be surprised that Die Alone is not the existential bummer the title suggests. Gazebos rages against the forces of post-millennial, pre-midlife anxiety and Die Alone is the soundtrack.
Which isn’t to say it’s a church picnic: Die Alone is more complex than simple genre tags or clichéd descriptors allow. The band coined the phrase “whoa-pop” to describe their music and they say they’re not mad at the term “prog-punk.” Also consider that the album includes a cover from the Grease soundtrack that’ll thrill the indie-rock theater-nerd contingent, such as it is. Chalk up the sonic free-for-all to each member’s long and eclectic legacy of creative endeavors. None of these people has ever sat still very long.
Singer Shannon Perry has been in bands all her life (including Butts and Katherine Hepburn’s Voice), and is one of the Northwest’s most sought-after tattoo artists. Guitarist TV Coahran runs the weirdest karaoke night in Seattle, named after his record label GGNZLA, and for the past few years has toured, performed, and collaborated with lo-fi legend R. Stevie Moore. Shane Herrell played guitar with critical darlings the First Times, then switched to bass for Gazebos and Bread & Butter, his good-times choogle-rock band. Drummer Jordan T. Adams, typically shirtless by song two at Gazebos shows, comes from cult-fave bands Spurm and Monarchies. They’re all well-seasoned performers, they’ve all orbited each other’s bands in and out of Seattle for close to 20 years, and they’re all Cancers (except Shane: Capricorn).
