Interview with Daniel Francis Doyle

On Monday, Sept 12th, Daniel Francis Doyle will return to Ithaca for his fourth Ithaca Underground show - his first since April '10.  Since then, there's been some interesting activity in the DFD camp. We were able to catch up with Daniel while on the road for a very quick bit of Q&A...

IU: How have you been since we last saw you in Ithaca?

DFD: I've been alright. Workin' on new music and such.

IU: How was last fall's tour? I heard you got to experience our friends at Bazooka / Bazooka back in Oct while the core of the IU camp was driving out to Minnesota.

DFD: Yeah, the show in Binghampton was great! Really great bunch of people there.

IU: What's the skinny on your newest single/EP "There Are Two of You"?

DFD: Well, it's actually not  really new anymore, it came out last October. But, yeah, my website still has it listed as "new". Sorry for the confusion. It's a 2 song 7", "There Are Two of You" b/w "Sharing Stories". SOUNGS, a label out of Brooklyn, released it. They are just about to release a new comp that I'll be on, too. I actually have a new 10" just about to be released on Monofonus Press. They might mail it to me in Ithaca -- so my upcoming visit with ya'll might be the 1st show I'll play with the new release!

IU: I've also heard you've been collaborating with some pals from Austin and may have a split coming as well?

DFD: Yeah, I'm touring with a full band this time around and playing mostly new songs. The split is that Monofonus release I talked about above. It's with Austin's Dikes of Holland!

IU: What else will 2011 (and 2012 if you can speak to it) hold for DFD?

DFD: Recording an album with the band and hopefully more touring!!!

IU: Stoked to play your third different space in Ithaca in 4 gigs?

DFD: Yes! I love coming to Ithaca, and I am grateful you keep having me back!!

IU: Any words for your fans here in CNY and to those coming out on 9/12?

DFD: Oh....woah. Hhhmmmm. I guess that i hope they have a good time at the show, and to feel free to "cut a rug" at the show! You know, dancin!
