David Michael Curry tells us the origin of this song: “Incubate Festival in Tilburg, Netherlands was our last show in 2016. When we returned home, Robert went for a check-up because he said he felt something unusual. He was diagnosed within a month or two of that final tour. He wrote the song “Untethered” shortly after that.” It was to form part of an incomplete album of the same title that has now been brought to fruition as an act of closure following Robert Fisher’s death from cancer in February 2017. As Robert Fisher’s longtime musical partner David Michael Curry explains “there was a growing sense of needing this record to honour the history of the band somehow”. Contributors include Steve Wynn and Chris Brokaw but it’s David Michael Curry alongside Robert Fisher who hold the whole project together. The album is out on the 7th of December, but you can hear the sombre title track right now.
