'The Twilight Sad Killed My Parents And Hit The Road' is an exclusive release from The Twilight Sad, and was created to coincide with their 2008 European tour with Mogwai. This limited edition collection of new songs, covers, instrumentals, previously unreleased material and live tracks recorded at the ABC in Glasgow, highlights the power, versatility and raw intensity of their live sound.
With the majority of tracks mixed and mastered by Iain Cook of Aerogramme, 'Killed My Parents And Hit The Road' encompasses the bands' bare, unfeigned use of melancholy with rousing, epic intensity, never straying too far from hitting sentimental nerves. Throughout the record, melodies stagger between feedback-laden instrumentals and rich, seemingly effortless acoustic ballads, each accented by Graham's strong Scottish tones, creating a collection of songs that are as intriguing as they are engulfing. Alongside their own tracks, the band have chosen to cover songs by Joy Division ('Twenty Four Hours'), Yeah Yeah Yeahs ('Modern Romance') and The Smiths ('Half A Person'), providing greater scope into the tracks' pensive and wistful subjects, whilst retaining the stirring and engaging qualities of the originals.
