Great Apes - Thread - Used LP

Regular price $ 8.00 $ 0.00


The lyrical material on Thread was inspired by and pieced together from written conversations and interviews with close friends. The individuals who contributed spun narratives based on their own experiences and/or expressed their ideologies regarding subject matter they deemed important. Essentially, each song represents a different person. 

Without the contributions of these friends, this record wouldn’t be what it is.  In consideration of their willingness to candidly share their stories and beliefs, and more importantly, their friendship, we would like to thank the following people: Jacy, Kevin, Emily, Luke, David, April, Tyler, Bryan, and Danica. The last song on the record, Thread, is intended to pay homage to the patchwork of our community of friends and loved ones, and the binds that come with them. We are grateful to have you in our lives.
