Listen: Cody Canada & The Departed preview new song "Hobo," plan Miami, OK, show in support of new album "Adventus"
On Nov. 13, Oklahoma-Texas red dirt rockers Cody Canada & The Departed will release their first studio album of original material titled “Adventūs,” the Latin word for arrival.
Featuring 14 sweltering, hard-rocking tracks forged in the hot Southern sun, “Adventūs” truly marks an arrival to a new era of creative growth for Oklahoma-born and bred singer-songwriter Canada, who formed The Departed with bassist Jeremy Plato upon the disbanding of their former band, Cross Canadian Ragweed.
The Departed also features Seth James on guitar (Seth James Band, Ray Wylie Hubbard),
“Adventūs” follows The Departed’s 2011 debut “This is Indian Land,” an Oklahoma tribute album paying homage to seminal red dirt and Tulsa Sound songwriters. Recording an album of cover songs gave The Departed’s members, who have known each other for years, a chance to meld an ethos of their own.
“For this album, we were ready to roll,” says Canada in a news release. “When we started practicing there was the feeling that we are honored to be doing this together. Doing other people’s songs for the first album gave us time to let the new stuff percolate. There are some really intricate songs, and so far, we have only played a couple of them out in public.”
