Story behind the Matt Arbogast Podcast:

The Gunshy, once the solo project of Chicago’s Matt Arbogast, has been a lot more productive in recent years than ever before. Arbogast credits the renewed enthusiasm and productivity with finding a solid set of collaborators, who have transformed the endeavor into a full-fledge band.

On October 23, The Gunshy quartet, now consisting of guitarist Ryan Ford, bassist Jesse Askren and drummer Andy Sivwright, released a new four song 7” via Arbogast’s Sleep Recordings. The Onion AV Club premiered the video for “Content Man” from the 7” in early August, and the band tours in support of the record in November.

As always, much of the strength of The Gunshy lies in Arbogast’s narrative storytelling, reminiscent of latter day Bob Dylan, Eric Bachmann and Frank Turner. Thematically, this 7” is one that reflects Arbogast’s thoughts about aging, gaining understanding and mortality. Arbogast also acknowledges that part of growing up is also finding a way to make hard, mature decisions, one of which he faced on his last tour and inspired the song “At 35.”

Following their November tour the band will write a new LP, which they will record in February 2016.
