Album Notes
Double Dare is driving music — something to get you from point A to point B. For this 11-song thrill ride of a disc, that’s got a double meaning. Songs like the slamming title track and the spanking riff rocker, “Lose Control,” certainly keep the pedal to the floor, but more contemplative numbers, like the slide guitar ballad, “Wonder Woman,” and the celebration of life’s simple joys, “This Is What It’s All About,” also bridge the points between life’s connections — romance, family, joy. The things you really need to get you from point A to point B.
Frank Bang’s own journey has had many stops on his way to becoming a vibrant songwriter-guitarist and frontman, including a five-year apprenticeship as guitar foil for blues legend Buddy Guy. And they all fuel Double Dare, a set that finds Bang at the creative zenith of his composing and performing powers, riding a raw and original line with his band the Secret Stash straight through the rock, blues and country that he’s absorbed as a musical traveler.
“There isn’t one thing on this album that isn’t true,” Bang relates. “There are stories about my family, about my life and experiences, about things that have struck me as funny or interesting. Even the guitar sound goes right back to the buzz I got plugging an electric guitar in for the first time — getting that real pure tone and letting it rip.”
Double Dare, helmed by Umphrey’s McGee, Patrick Stump of Fall Out Boys and Rod Stewart producer/engineer Manny Sanchez, ignited when Bang wrote the song “Wonder Woman,” a warm slide guitar powered tune about the inspiration and healing power of love. “I knew I had a song with heart and meaning, and that set the bar for the rest of the songs that I wanted to write,” he explains. Similarly, “All I Need” chronicles the turns of life over a bed of gently grinding six-string and a glide of organ, brought to an emotional arc by Bang’s soaring solo.
