"On their debut LP, Williamsburg psych punks Acid Dad polish up the shaggy weirdness of Thee Oh Sees and Ty Segall with occasional flashes of Television’s guitar tones and the Stone Roses’ grinning nonchalance." -- Consequence of Sound
Acid Dad first appeared in the New York scene at the onset of 2016. After spending the year self-releasing demos recorded at their studio in upstate New York, the band garnered local praise from the likes of Oh My Rockness, Consequence of Sound, BrooklynVegan, Stereogum and more. After releasing their debut EP Let’s Plan a Robbery in February 2016, followed by their first sold-out show at Baby's All Right, Acid Dad embarked upon a two month tour of the United States.
Fresh off their first tour, which included numerous SXSW performances as well as appearances on Daytrotter, Audiotree and Jam in the Van, the band started writing their debut LP. All the while, they continued to play alongside their contemporaries including Thee Oh Sees, Diarrhea Planet, and Night Beats. At the outset of 2017, the band began recording what would become their debut S/T LP.
Now part of the Greenway Records family, their Self-Titiled debut LP was released March 9th to rave reviews from the likes of The New York Times, Consequence of Sound, and Brooklyn Vegan. Its release was followed by a US tour which again included SXSW & sold-out shows in New York, LA & San Francisco. On the tail of that success, the band crossed the Atlantic for their first European tour which included riotous shows in Amsterdam, London and Paris.
Now back home in NYC, the band has transitioned into creation mode - Acid Dad is hard at work on LP 2, with new singles slated for release throughout 2018 and a Greenway Records full-length expected soon after.
