Have a Nice Life - Sea of Worry pre-orders will begin August 27th at 9am ET. Sea of Worry will be out on November 8th 2019
“I can stay up late whenever I want... but other than that, it’s nothing like I thought. I guess I thought I’d know what I’m doing by now... but I know nothing.”
Have A Nice Lifewas formed in a time of Dan’s and Tim’s life that reflected concerns with depression and suicidal ideation. As the following for the project has grown, and Dan and Tim have aged and faced new life challenges with family and careers, their new album Sea of Worryreflects just that. Dread is the primary theme that is woven throughout Sea of Worry- the dread of aging, children growing up, and an increasingly uncertain future. However, Sea of Worry is Have A Nice Life at the peak of their powers; Dan and Tim’s unmistakable chemistry coupled with a propulsive backing band catapults them into the stratosphere. These 7 tracks ebb and flow with noise and melody, and are so well-crafted it’s near impossible to get them out of your head. More concise and perhaps more straightforward than their past releases, Have A Nice Life has found new focus and discipline on Sea of Worryand the album is a triumphant addition to their ever-evolving discography.
Sea of Worry will be released via The Flenser on November 8th 2019.

We are launching pre-orders early for Consumer's In Computers. More info and music coming soon.
Consumer formed in 2017 to generate reptile-brain, late capitalist agitprop. Its main tools are over-processed riffs played at high volume, impressionistic slogans, and soundscapes built from analog synths, broken electronics, and tape loops. Past your well-stocked garage, descending into Mammon's deep world of darkness, with regional coupon circulars in hand, Consumer offers doomy, electro, post-whatever.
Featuring Tim from Have a Nice Life as well as Have a Nice Life’s live band Myke Cameron (bass), Rich Otero (drums, synths, programming), and Joe Streeter (guitar/engineering).
