Summer Cannibals [PDX]:
Rock band from Portland, OR
” ‘You know what you did, you know what I saw. Now I take back my doubt so that you’ll crawl.’
Summer Cannibals’ fourth album Can’t Tell Me No, out July 2019 on Tiny Engines, is a defiant release whose very existence is the result of taking back power—after escaping a manipulative personal and creative relationship, guitarist/vocalist and bandleader Jessica Boudreaux chose to scrap an entire record that had been finished for over a year and start from scratch. ‘We had to sacrifice an album we’d worked hard on so that someone abusive and manipulative couldn’t benefit from it,’ says Boudreaux. ‘It was, in a matter of 24 hours, making the decision to start something new or let them win.’
Creation and determination prevailed; along with Cassi Blum, Devon Shirley, and Ethan Butman, Boudreaux wrote and recorded and mixed many of the new tracks during 14-hour days. She and Blum hunkered down in Boudreaux’s home studio, where they had been already been engineering records for other bands, and finished Can’t Tell Me No as Summer Cannibals’ first entirely self-engineered and produced album.
