From playing drums for the metalcore act Coalesce in the mid-nineties to manning keyboards with the Get Up Kids, New Found Glory and My Chemical Romance, this 37-year old multi-instrumentalist has one of the most unique musical resumes in the around. However the most unfiltered glimpse into Dewees’ vision has always been his celebrated solo project Reggie And The Full Effect, who are back with their fifth album, No Country For Old Musicians. Many friends he has made over the years including, Frank Iero, Adam Lazzara, Allison Weiss and Sean Ingram joined him to lend guest vocals on the album and Ray Toro joined to play guitar on two tracks.

Admittedly a lot has changed in both Dewees’ personal and professional life since he recorded Last Stop: Crappy Town back in 2006 (it was eventually released two years later). At that time he was reeling from a recent divorce, stint in rehab and the break up of his longtime band the Get Up Kids. “It’s like that part of the movie Legend where Tim Curry asks, “What is light without dark?” Dewees explains, “The good news is that I got through the hard times and there was a light at the end of the tunnel,” he says, “and for me that light was No Country For Old Musicians.”

 

No Country For Old Musicians was conceived last year while Dewees was in Los Angeles working on a still-unreleased album with My Chemical Romance. “I lived across the street from the studio so I was there every day constantly writing music and just trying to get better at recording and songwriting.” At the same time Dewees as sparring with the teenagers who wouldn’t stop dancing in front of his elevator (as chronicled on “Something Funny Happened On The Way To Ralph’s”) he was dealing with decidedly adult issues back on the East—and that dichotomy is a perfect representation of the duality between humor and darkness that’s always been a hallmark of Reggie And The Full Effect’s sound.

 

Once Dewees  began putting together the songs for No Country For Old Men he enlisted former bandmates and lifelong collaborators such as My Chemical Romance’s Frank Iero and Ray Toro, the Get Up Kids’ Matt Pryor and Coalesce frontman Sean Ingram to help flush out these songs and bring them to their full potential. “I’m lucky to have super talented friends so it took everyone a day to record their parts,” he beams. “I know all of the other musicians on this album on such a personal level as far as writing goes that it’s like we have our own shorthand,” Dewees explains. “I guess that goes back to how long my career’s been and all the bands, albums and writing styles that I’ve been a part of.”
