Wednesday Video Spotlight: The Departed releases first album of original material "Adventus"

by Brandy McDonnell Published: November 14, 2012

Oklahoma-Texas red dirt rockers The Departed released Tuesday their first album of original material, “Adventus,” which is Latin for “arrival,” on Underground Sound through Thirty Tigers.

The band consists of former Cross Canadian Ragweed singer/guitarist Cody Canada and bassist Jeremy Plato, who formed The Departed with Texas guitarist Seth James, Tulsa keyboardist Steve Littleton and Yukon drummer David Bowen when Ragweed split up in 2010. Drummer Chris Doege has since replaced Bowen, who retired for medical reasons, in The Departed lineup.

“Adventus” is the follow-up to The Departed’s 2011 debut album, “This Is Indian Land,” an 18-track salute to the Sooner State songwriters, from Leon Russell and J.J. Cale to the Red Dirt Rangers and Tom Skinner.

Check out my column on “Adventus” Friday, and in the meantime, check out this video interview with The Departed, along with the official video for album opener “Worth the Fight”:
