Friendship share "Skip to the Good Part," tour (2017)

Philadelphia’s Friendship have shared “Skip to the Good Part,” the yearning third single from their forthcoming new record Shock Out of Season. Frontman Dan Wriggins pulled from a variety of inspirations to write this song: “I found Anne Sexton’s New York Times obituary, clipped from the Sunday paper, October 6th, 1974, in a used copy of her book, Live or Die. The song is based on this obituary, and on the book’s final poem, ‘Live.’ It also includes lines inspired by Michelle Blades’ and Neil Young’s stage banter, James Agee’s ‘Permit Me Voyage,’ Ray Price’s ‘There Stands the Glass,’ Job 14:1, and some things my mom used to say.”

Shock Out of Season is out November 3 on Orindal Records and is available for pre-order now.
