Rustic Overtones: “The Government Shutdown”

Video for new single honors trombonist Dave Noyes

For “The Government Shutdown,” the new song from Rustic Overtones’ forthcoming self-titled album, the veteran ska-rock band filmed longtime Bollard/Mainer contributor Pat Corrigan creating the album’s cover art at Battery Steele, the World War II-era military outpost on Peaks Island that’s been transformed over the decades into an underground art space. The cover art for the new record, which drops Nov. 29 (Black Friday), honors Rustic trombonist Dave Noyes, who passed away in early March of this year. Noyes and Corrigan established their own indie art space, The Apohadion Theater, in Portland’s Bayside neighborhood, and Noyes contributed music to many Maine bands, including The Orchards, who are dedicating proceeds from the sale of their new album to Noyes’ family.
