Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NEW YORK - Feb 25, 2019 - Politically motivated indie rockers A Fragile Tomorrow released their new full-length album “Generation Loss” on Feb. 22, 2019 via MPress Records/ILS/Caroline. Hit with hard times in their everyday lives as struggling young adults, the band presents a collection of modern songs that are easily relatable to their generational peers. The krautrock, psych-leaning release premiered on The Big Takeover and is now available for streaming or purchase here.
Lead vocalist Sean Kelly expands on the concept of the album and title track, “Generation Loss”: “‘Generation Loss‘ was the working title of the album from very early on, which refers to the loss of quality between subsequent copies of data (video, audio, etc). I thought of that concept – the older and more copied something got, the worse it was in terms of quality. If you put that in the context of capitalism and the way our government is structured, it applies quite frighteningly. The more power these politicians have, the more money is in their pockets from large donors, and the more beholden they are to corporate interests, the less we have and the less likely we are to truly prosper and live the so-called ‘American Dream.’”
The Kelly brothers – Sean, Dom, and Brendan – make up 3/4 of the band and the recent passing of their mother is another subject reflected in songs like “I See My Son.” The grieving process peeks in and out of the lyrics throughout, but hits hardest in the album’s closing track “Valhalla.”
“This song happened near the end of the recording process,” the band explains. “Most of the lyrics were actually written before Mom’s death, but I never showed the song to her because I didn’t think it was a good idea considering where her health was by that point. Essentially, it’s an analysis of where I think her head was at in the final months. She was alive, but was she really? What is life if you can’t truly live it?”
With “Generation Loss,” A Fragile Tomorrow has one mission: to redefine themselves during times of upheaval and rise up more powerful and daring than ever. They seamlessly weave in and out of emotions laced with both societal and familial changes with ease, coursing listeners through a cinematic scape of rollercoaster ups and downs in a way that’s easy and enjoyable to digest. Mixed by the legendary Mitch Easter (R.E.M., Pavement), A Fragile Tomorrow worked with co-producers Zach Bodtorf and Ted Comerford on the record to construct the music as a continuous listening experience.
Both political and passionate, “Generation Loss” offers an intelligent, yet contemplative outlook for the future while plunging fist-in-the-air forward to push both themselves – and all of us – towards a beautiful, more united and compassionate tomorrow. The band is currently on tour in support of the album, with a string of East Coast dates lined up for the next month as they head through South Carolina, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and two shows in New York.

ABOUT A FRAGILE TOMORROW: A Fragile Tomorrow began as a trio of teen brothers who rose above a difficult, tragedy-laden childhood and channeled their emotions into smart, catchy, dreamy pop music. Having released five independent albums, the band has toured extensively with artists such as Indigo Girls, Matthew Sweet, The Bangles, and Toad The Wet Sprocket. AFT also won an Independent Music Award for their duet with distant cousin, Joan Baez, which Consequence Of Sound called ‘…a gorgeous and eccentric tribute.”
A staple in the Southern power-pop scene, Blurt Magazine dubbed them “One of South Carolina’s leading indie lights, period.” The members have collectively collaborated with many renowned musicians including Gail Ann Dorsey (David Bowie), Mark Hart (Crowded House), Emily Saliers (Indigo Girls), and Lucy Wainwright Roche.
