About this Artist
Gaadge (with two A’s) is a project created by Mitch DeLong in the summer of 2014. After recording and releasing the bedroom demo “Whirl” and playing scattered shows of original music with a changing line-up, the project lay dormant until DeLong relocated to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 2016. It was here that he reunited with drummer Andy Yadeski and guitarist Ethan Oliva (two members of lo-fi juggernauts “Barlow”) and met bassist Nick Boston. Their most recent record, Yeah?, was released in March 2021 via Crafted Sounds. The band has described it as the realization of Gaadge’s fever dream: a wild ride through varying genres of alternative music. With praise from various outlets and the warm embrace of the Pittsburgh music scene, Gaadge was determined to keep going. Yeah? propelled the band right into a busy 2022, where they released a cover on feeble little horse’s modern tourism tape reissue and another split, this time with post-Barlow band Ex Pilots...all while writing and recording their next album. Gaadge’s third full length record Somewhere Down Below is slated for release in Summer 2023.
