Old Death Whisper’s first full length album The Traveler is a culmination of dirty western road stories, reflections of heartbreak, murder ballads and good old drinking songs. Inspired partly by two years of touring the states as well as Europe, The Traveler shows that Old Death Whisper is a no bullshit operation that bases their music on real experiences with real people in sometimes surreal situations. Founded in the roots of American music, but not limited to old west themes and cowboys, The Traveler is a modern commentary on the road, survival of the heartbroken and the western American lifestyle. Road life, divorce, dusty trails and smoky dive bars were the incubators of this album and have produced a genuine western gothic tale of The Traveler. The lyrics for the title track (written by unknown) were found in an old desk and put to music by the band which helped to form the roaming theme of this record. The Traveler was recorded at the Audio Lab in Boise, Idaho with Steve Fulton. The sound is energetic, gritty, dirty, spacious and sometimes gentle in its ferocity.
