Koufax is set to release its latest full-length album Strugglers on September 23rd via Doghouse Records. The brainchild of Robert Suchan and his ever-rotating cast of players, Koufax has received acclaim for its unique incorporation of genres from decades past along with witty and insightful lyrics. Viewing the American landscape from his Czech Republic outpost, Suchan crafted a 10-song collection of hip-shakinÂ rock and indie-pop bliss that is sure to be one of this fallÂs must-have albums.
Strugglers, the bandÂs fourth album, kicks off with Looney Tunes inspired horns on ÂAny Moment NowÂ- the first single to be released digitally August 5th. The infectious track is what Suchan refers to as Âan attempt at an updated ÂIÂm Waiting for the Man.ÂÂ Another highlight is ÂRoll the Dice,Â with its sincere political musings in the guise of an indie-pop song. A pop song with mandolin that mentions Jean-Paul Sartre and George Orwell, thatÂs Koufax.
Written by Suchan in the fall of 2007 while living in Prague, Strugglers delves into political and social commentary through narratives tackling the party hopping drunk (ÂDriversÂ), deluded Hollywood-typesÂ reign over pop culture (ÂCalifornia Taught Us WellÂ) and the condescension that is found in so many of the "truth movements" (ÂStrugglersÂ). With lyrical strength and a delivery that Rolling Stone calls Âdramatic, Morissey-like crooning,Â Suchan ranks as one of the most talented frontmen in the game.
Koufax has been performing internationally for the last 8 years playing 14 countries, numerous festivals, and tours with bands such as Wilco, Bright Eyes, Nada Surf and The Get Up Kids. The guys head out on the road in August including shows with the Smoking Popes.
