With an album that was originally due out in 2008, Default (Dallas Smith on vocals, Jeremy Hora on guitars, Dave Benedict on bass, and Danny Craig on drums) fell victim to the unfortunate industry side of the music world and their album was put on hold as their former record label went out of business. Never fear though, the album aptly titled Comes and Goes finally made its debut on October 26th through AudioNest and was well worth the wait.
What may have been enough to split up some bands only seemed to bring Default closer together. Calling the whole experience a mixed bag of emotions the band is just happy to finally share their music with their fans that have been patiently waiting. Comes and Goes offers up Default’s strongest offering to date with lyrics that are deeply personal and a song selection that runs the gamut. From the first single, the upbeat anthemic “Turn It On” to a song penned about Dallas’ son titled “Caught In The Moment” this album brings Default back to their core of their melodic rock sound with big hooks, catchy riffs, and inspiring lyrics.
We recently caught up with lead vocalist Dallas Smith to talk about the band’s journey, the new album, and of course we couldn’t resist the chance to talk playoff hockey with him!
