Damion Suomi & The Minor Prophets GO, AND SELL ALL OF YOUR THINGS Now Available For Pre Order

Featured — By HopelessNatalie on February 28, 2011

Hopeless Records/ P is for Panda is excited to announce the second album release from Damion Suomi & The Minor Prophets titled Go, And Sell All of Your Things.

A folk rock album filled with harmonizing and often gang vocals, intense guitars, hard drum beats and layers of banjo, mandolin, trumpet, piano and lap steel, Go, And Sell All of Your Things from Damion Suomi & The Minor Prophets will have you getting lost in its foot stomping and heart pounding songs. Lyrically, Go, and Sell All of Your Things tells the tale of the Hero’s Journey, A poetic parallel of the universal struggle, and the transformation that results, when one chooses to let go and embrace the life that has been inside of them all along. As the story begins to unfold before the listener, the role that the instrumentation plays on the record emerges purposefully as a musical score, accompanying the hero along the way. Yet with all of the depth and metaphor found on Go, and Sell All of Your Things, Damion Suomi and The Minor Prophets have crafted a record that remains wonderfully accessible, inviting the listener to become a part of the story right from the start.

The record is inspired by, and therefore dedicated to, the memories of: lead singer Damion Suomi’s father Duane Suomi who died suddenly in early 2010, as well as Joseph Campbell and Charles Bukowski.

“You see, the Americana folk genre has always missed something and that is the kind of balls-out stage energy that sticks with you… Swinging guitars, massive group drum-offs, and a passionate lead singer who seems to unleash upon his audience.”- KataRokkar.net
