The Districts' Great American Painting is the follow up to the band's 2020 album You Know I'm Not Going Anywhere, which was released the day the world shut down [3/13/20], so all of the album promotion post release and touring was unfortunately shut down. This new record is the band's most expansive yet - with the aim for a more accessible alternative sound with assistance from Joe Chiccarelli (The Strokes, My Morning Jacket, The Raconteurs) who produced the album and mixed by Matty Green (Weezer, Grouplove). This record is a new era. The desire to create something larger than yourself, that will infiltrate people’s hearts like well-oiled machines, to paint pictures that will shake them and create a resounding push forward towards something more. In our pandemic isolation, what we wanted was to play a loud collage of music, unconfined by preconceived notions of what it should be, and to transcend ourselves in a room full of breathing, screaming, vibrating human beings - to let the darkness out in a cathartic squeal of noise, eclipsing it with light. We wanted to feel it all at once with you and to escape this fucked up world and find our way into a better one together.
