I’ve spent the past 11 months of Now, Now’s break writing a new Tancred record and today I completed the writing process. It’s going to be entirely different from anything I have put out before, and nothing like the last record. Also 3 new members will be joining me. More info coming in the following months.
Isaiah Dominguez recently recorded a new song called “No Matter Where” that was produced by Casey Bates (This Providence, Gatsby’s American Dream).

It's a new year... i've been wanting you to hear this new song i wrote.. i started writing a song after Big Butch passed away a year ago.. i just couldn't finish it without losing my words. my buddy Ryan Adams helped me really focus and finish the thoughts. needless to say, i think it might be the closest i have ever been to one of my songs (for obvious reasons). this one goes out to my Son AND my Dad.

As I posted 3 days ago, I am taking the appropriate time to assess these very serious allegations against me and I am not taking them lightly.
