Auf GNDWIRE / Thirty Tigers erscheint das sehr persönliche Album des Singer/Songwriters Dave Simonett als "Dead Man Winter", der auch der Kopf von Trampled By Turtles ist. Furnace, the sophomore album from Dead Man Winter, is set for release on January 27 on GNDWIRE/Thirty Tigers. Furnace is a highly revealing and deeply personal offering from accomplished singer and songwriter Dave Simonett, who performs under the pseudonym Dead Man Winter. Widely known as the lead vocalist and songwriter for the acclaimed band Trampled By Turtles, Simonett has touched legions of fans with his thoughtful lyrics and warm tenor. The songwriter spent time in a cabin during the 20-below Minnesota winter and just wrote. The pent up emotions poured out of him and into songs such as the haunting "This House Is On Fire", the reflective Byrds-styled "Destroyer" and the rollicking confessional "Am I Breaking Down", to name a few. Simonett recorded with longtime friends from the Minneapolis rock scene ¿ drummer JT Bates, guitarist Erik Koskinen, bassist Tim Saxhaug, and keyboardist Bryan Nichols. The album was recorded live to tape at the historic Pachyderm Studio in Cannon Falls, MN, where Nirvana's In Utero was recorded.
