Former Domination hit a high note as a band with the release of their 2021 album, Time, Tequila & Therapy. But before making this project, they went through a rough patch, the band members admit in a new interview with Rolling stone.
Part of their challenges came from the COVID-19 pandemic: They weren’t together as much, and it became more difficult to have face-to-face conversations. âIt took away the style of communication we are used to. You can’t sit down and have coffee and say, âWhat do you think? Â»Â», Explains the group Geoff sprung.
âThere were two-day threads. It was like, ‘Is this fun?’ And it wasn’t, ” Matthieu ramsey admits.
Add Trevor Rosen, “It was all work being in a group without any joy in being in a group.”
Fortunately, with the help of a little Time, Tequila & Therapy – literally – they started to regain their rhythm. Things got better when the band members gathered in Asheville, NC last September to write and record their new album.
The âTherapyâ portion of this title is particularly important, as many of the group members are in regular therapy. For Matthew, the experience has helped him communicate effectively with the other guys in Old Dominion.
âIt’s not a normal life, and the things that come with it are sometimes hard to figure out,â Geoff recalls. âA big part is, ‘How do I cope? How do you make the transition from being here where it’s kind of a life and then coming home for another life? ‘ “
Today, the band members say they are closer than ever. The first single from Time, Tequila & Therapy – “I Was on a Boat That Day” – represents the more carefree side of the group.
