Americana Highways is hosting this premiere of Parade of Bad Guys’ song “Sympathy Cards” from their forthcoming album.    The album was engineered and mixed by Jason Ringelstetter, and mastered by Chris Parks. The song was written and produced by Parade of Bad Guys.

“Sympathy Cards” is Ben Breiding on acoustic guitar, electric guitar and vocals; pedal steel guitar – Tyler McFarlane on pedal steel guitar; Andrew Keck on bass and accompanying vocals; Alan Schwaderer on piano and organ and Isaac Torres on drums.

In this song, Parade of Bad Guys tackles the torment of what happens when you’re grieving, with pedal steel and a quick tempo to support you while you’re down, bargaining and processing.  Sometimes that’s exactly what Americana music needs to be — standing in the face of sadness and loss.

“Sympathy Cards” was writen shortly after the death of my father. The song is about the impact and aftermath of losing a loved one. Everyone processes loss and deals with grief differently. Writing this song helped me cope the loss of my father, and I hope that resonates with anyone who has lost someone they love. – Ben Breiding
