ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Well it was a wild ride to say the least. Jake and I spent the better part of our 20s in a rock band called Donerail. Dan even made it into his 30s in a rock band! We all had fun. We burned through 2 drummers, both great, until we found the king of the skins in Duncan. For awhile, everything was perfect.

Everything ends though.

This was our last dance, our masterpiece. 17 songs to say who we were and why we mattered. When I listen to it now, it sounds like 17 songs arguing over who we were and why we mattered. The funny thing is... that's exactly what it should sound like.

Donerail was never a succinct and straightforward band. We were the rock band that loved country, the country band that loved metal, the indie band that hated the "genre" that was indie, the un-ironic classic rock band, the hipster haters in Portland, the sound experiment freaks that loved a 2 minute pop song. We were pure, but we were conflicted. Which is what made us great - raw nervous energy that came from the same place that couldn't stick to one genre.

Our genre was great music. Sometimes we strayed from that genre ;)

Sometimes we were the best.



Their classic roots are embedded on their sophomore release Destiny and Dishonor. But all the indie brands and typecasting are clear and present enough for them to flourish in the night life of their home city of Portland, Oregon. In just one song, these blokes will go from spiritual, to rugged, to loving in only a couple minutes. And unlike many indie acts today, their songs are inspiring and much less destructive than what you might hear regularly.
...
This is a fine group of guys that you can’t help but love. Their energy is intense to say the least. Their talents are obviously exceptional. And Destiny and Dishonor is a wonderful audio portfolio of everything these guys have to offer.
-- Ron Trembath, Fensepost

Donerail play that kind of Replacements-like rock 'n roll that never fails to bring a smile to my face.
-- Matt Burgess, Burgo's Blog

The music to me is uniquely familiar. Yes, it’s a bit of an oxymoron, but it’s true. At first listen, I thought the album was very fresh and uncommon. However, the songs begin to remind me of other bands after the 2nd or 3rd listens. Though not in a bad way.
-- Portland Music Blog

That combination, of nervous garage rock and sludgy grunge, has its charm for sure.
