Obits shun innovation for I Blame You

Obits make their home in Brooklyn, NY, and consist of Rick Froberg, Sohrab Habibion, Greg Simpson, and Scott Gursky. In December of 2008, they released their first single, “One Cross Apiece” b/w “Put It in Writing” on their own Stint Records label and did some touring with the Constantines and The Night Marchers. We’re not into innovation as a band,” says Froberg, who’s already done his fair share of innovating with Drive Like Jehu and Hot Snakes. “I think innovation is overrated and an overestimated quality. Anything that’s going to be original is going to happen without your control. Things that make your band sound like you, are things you wouldn’t be able to change anyway. We just go ahead and play the stuff we like, and we don’t worry about originality per se, because that takes care of itself.” Produced by G. Sanoff, E. Janney and Obits, I Blame You is the band’s debut full-length album, out March 24th.
