Friendship Commanders are a heavy duo from Nashville TN. The band is vocalist/guitarist Buick Audra, and
drummer/bassist Jerry Roe. They released two projects in 2020: an EP, HOLD ON TO YOURSELF (April 3, 2020);
and a two-song single, STONECHILD / YOUR REIGN IS OVER (October 12, 2020). For both releases, the band
worked with Kurt Ballou as a mix engineer and Brad Boatright as a mastering engineer. HOTY focuses on themes of
abuse survival and self-preservation in a patriarchal society, while STONECHILD / YRIO looks outward to the death
of a Chippewa Cree man named Stonechild Chiefstick, and to a white male legislative majority who spent the year
of a global pandemic working to lessen the human rights of those they purport to serve.
These releases follow their 2018 full-length album, BILL, which they made with Steve Albini at Electrical Audio in
Chicago, IL. They have new music releasing in late 2021.
