Many people know Dan Andriano from his nearly two decades of service playing bass and singing in Alkaline Trio, the goth-tinged punk threesome that has transcended genres and won over tens of thousands of fans in the process. But Andriano is not solely defined by his work in the Trio, even though many of his songs are among the band’s finest in their catalog. This need to make music strictly for himself with no outside expectations led him to create Dan Andriano In The Emergency Room, an outlet for the singer/songwriter to explore whatever struck his fancy. Which leads us to his sophomore album under the Emergency Room, the Jeff Rosenstock-produced Party Adjacent. It’s a record that channels everything from Elvis Costello to Thin Lizzy, but still retains the lyrical charm and honesty Andriano has become known for throughout his career. Today, we’re debuting one of the album’s finest tracks, the jangly pop number “Wait,” which could fit comfortably on a playlist between Ted Leo and Superdrag. Party Adjacent comes out July 17 on Asian Man Records and can be pre-ordered here.
