Lieutenant (Nate Mendel) Streams Debut LP Early; Catch Him March 23 @ Exit/In!


As we previously announced, Foo Fighters and Sunny Day Real Estate bassist Nate Mendel recently unveiled a new solo project dubbed Lieutenant, which, for the first time, puts him front and center on guitar and vocals. Lieutenant’s debut, If I Kill This Thing We’re All Going To Eat For A Week, isn’t officially slated to drop until next week, March 10 via Dine Alone Records, but, thanks to NME, you can listen to it early right now! Recorded at the Foos’ own studio, the album features members of Modest Mouse, The Shins, Helmet, The Melvins, The Head and the Heart, and even bandmates Jeremy Enigk (Sunny Day) and Chris Shiflett (Foo Fighters). Live, Lieutenant boasts members of Fleet Foxes, Snow Patrol, and The Bronx, and, unless anything else gets added at SXSW (which is very possible) the group’s upcoming March 23 show at Exit/In with Yukon Blonde will only be their fifth live performance ever. Grab tickets now for a measly twelve and half bones, and listen to If I Kill This Thing We’re All Going To Eat For A Week below!
