Hospital Ships began as a bedroom recording project for Lawrence, Kansas's Jordan Geiger. Over the course of four years, two albums and stints with multiple respected bands, like Minus Story (singing, songwriting,) and Shearwater (trumpet, keys,) Geiger molded Hospital Ships into a densely packed sonic experience, bringing to life the cloistered sounds of a mind bursting with ideas at work alone in the bedroom.
With "Destruction in Yr Soul," he's thrown open that bedroom door, inviting in a full band. The result is a collection of songs that, while sonically more open, still wrestle with themes both private and universal. From a desire to see the world end to the contemplation of loss, "Destruction in Yr Soul" plays in tones ranging from garage rock aggression to light, almost whimsical folk.
"Destruction in Yr Soul" will be available on June 18th via Graveface Records and Curiosities imprint.
