The Dead Ships lead singer Devlin McCluskey lost his best friend to suicide, and that was very much on his mind when he wrote "Citycide. On a visit to San Francisco, McCluskey got an informal tour of the city from a friend, who pointed out that the Golden Gate Bridge was the second-biggest suicide spot in the world (the Nanjing Yangtze River Bridge in China is the most popular). And curiously, the vast majority of jumpers do so off the side of the bridge that faces the city, not the side that faces the ocean. The song first appeared on the group's first EP (titled EP I) in 2015. The following year, it was used as the title track to their third full-length album. The song was produced by Brendan Canning of Broken Social Scene, whom they met at the NXNE festival in Canada. More songs from The Dead Ships. More songs about suicide. More songs inspired by places.
CITYCIDE by The Dead Ships, released 22 July 2016 chasing golden gates the clouds don't roll they plow you off to tide skyline looks the same Everybody jumps off the city side You would not be caught dead jumping off Bay Bridge to the sea Such a long walk to make your heart stop in Marin County I count up every phone call, went over all you had to say Never got why it's so hard to see the ocean for the bay Paint it everyday And by the years end when the last inch dries Then they start again Everybody commits to city side You would not be caught dead jumping off Bay Bridge to the sea.
Artist: The Dead Ships Title: Citycide Year Of Release: 2016 Label: Nevado Music Genre: Alternative Rock, Indie Quality: FLAC (tracks. The album title is a reference to how people who commit suicide by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge tend to face the city when they jump. Yes, the songs have a sense of place and point a few fingers here and there. The songs have a bit more garage-rock cred, being born out of a serendipitous meeting when McCluskey and drummer Chris Spindelilus jammed in an apartment and coalesced like butter on bread.

Their latest album, CITYCIDE, produced by Broken Social Scene’s Brendan Canning, tackled subjects like fascism coming back in fashion, fake news, the Soviet resurgence, suicide and the death of American cities, months and months before this orange asshole got nominated, let alone elected. The Dead Ships write good songs and play their balls off. Show more.
