TVD First Date | ...with Deleted Scenes

Deleted Scenes is a four-piece indie rock band living in DC and Brooklyn, NY. We met as kids growing up in Maryland and have been playing together under various guises ever since. The songwriting, a collaboration between Dan Scheuerman (vocals/guitars) and Matthew "Fatty" Dowling (bass/organ/vibraphone/flex-o-tone), is strengthened by the undeniably precise musicianship of drummer Brian Hospital and guitarist Chris Scheffey. In 2005, we recorded a four-song EP with Billy Gordon (of J-Roddy Walston & the Business) in Baltimore which featured songs Dan wrote at the end of college, and which Fatty helped hone and arrange with various instruments. In late 2006, the EP was released through Echelon Productions, and throughout the year that stretched across 2007 and 2008, we toured the country, and recorded a full-length record with J. Robbins (Jawbox/Burning Airlines) and L. Skell (the Rude Staircase). The resulting album is a diverse, propulsive, and deeply personal set of songs called "Birdseed Shirt." It is named after a passage in Jonathan Safran-Foer's novel, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close. We are still finalizing plans for release and distribution.

We're planning a CD release for December. P.S. Feral Kids fell off that bill. La Strada from NYC is replacing them. They're probably the best band we'll have ever played with.
