Tim Kasher’s Shares “Forever of the Living Dead (ft. Laura Jane Grace, Jeff Rosenstock)”

As he readies the release of his fourth solo full-length, Middling Age (15 Passenger), Tim Kasher allows listeners another sneak peek into the album with the video for the new single “Forever of the Living Dead,” which features Laura Jane Grace (Against Me!) and Jeff Rosenstock. It’s the second single following “I Don’t Think About You” featuring Megan Siebe, which was released last month. In the song, Kasher offers up gripping imagery of life & death, while the animated video graphically depicts his thoughts and ideas. Laura Jane Grace shares backing vocals while Rosenstock performs a sax solo. Middling Age is set for release on April 15, 2022.

“‘Forever of the Living Dead’ is the closing track, and so, attempts to sum up the various tangents of mortality and existentialism the album explores. It’s closer to stream-of-consciousness than most writing I do, using absurdist imagery to express, well, my abstract thoughts on aging, I suppose. As stream-of-consciousness goes, I’m not entirely sure just what it’s about at times. But it maintains a tone, and I’d like to think that tone reflects the album and the weight of our passage of time. I recruited both Laura Jane Grace and Jeff Rosenstock to help out on this song, with Laura singing the second verse and Jeff playing a sax solo for an extended outro. Phenomenal stuff,” explains Kasher of the song, before adding about the video, “Eric Stafford made the brilliant video, leaning hard into the absurdist imagery by creating a narrative of two zombies seeking one another out. I love what he’s done, and now I picture the video when I play the song, which is how a great video should work, in my opinion.” – Tim Kasher
