Yesterday (February 4) was the third anniversary of a dark day in our history – the day that Josh Silverman of Shirk Circus passed. We knew Josh in the 90s as an outstanding songwriter and incredible guitarist, and had plans on releasing the Shirk song “In Time” on a split 7″ with Footstone before we put the label on hiatus. We reconnected with Josh on the Dromedary Blog in 2009, and when we decided to relaunch the label, were surprised to learn that there was an entire, unreleased Shirk Circus album that had been recorded in the late 90s.
We were still planning the release of the record when we learned of Josh’s passing, so the album _This Band Will Destroy Your Life_ was released posthumously. Yesterday, the band’s bass player d. smith released a video for the song “The Rush,” to help remember Josh.
