Artist Biography

David Bazan was the songwriter and driving force behind the acclaimed band Pedro the Lion, building a dedicated following and selling a few hundred-thousand albums based in large part on his extraordinary melodic sense and erudite, theologically-themed songs. After a decade helming the project, he ditched the moniker in favor of his given name and has since released several critically-acclaimed albums. David's new album Blanco will be released world-wide on May 13, 2016 by Barsuk Records.

Having spent half of the last decade on tour, away from home, Bazan's new songs reflect the wandering life of a traveling troubadour. And while there is joy in that life, Blanco is born of its challenges. It's what, and whom, he leaves at home that you hear on Blanco. Made up of tracks that were previously available in a very limited edition 7" vinyl series called Bazan Monthly, Volume 1 and Volume 2, Bazan started the project to see what kind of songs would come if he sat down in a small bedroom in his basement, propelled by a deadline, kids sleeping upstairs, and wrote from the duality that had blocked him from writing before - what it means to have a home, and have to constantly leave it to make ends meet.
