We are thrilled to present the first album by YEARS, a band featuring Kevin Thomson and Joe Goldring of the mighty ENABLERS.
The band members are friends and family to Exile On Mainstream, even though this album is a DIY self-release by the band and not on Exile On Mainstream.We still decided to make this record available to you, our fans, for one simple reason: we love it and you gotta hear it.
“Rats is one of those records that everyone needs in their collection. When you’re struggling to find the right vibe and things don’t quite hit the way they should, there are circuit-breaker albums, and that’s where Years come in. A band tailored for all moods and concerns. With Rats you can hear and almost feel the organic chemistry between each band member. A group of veterans who have been there and done it, this is pure harmony and fun committed to tape. A group of friends gathered around the campfire to create the beautiful noise. It’s the way music should be.”
