A B O U T

Friendship Commanders are a heavy duo from Nashville TN. The band is vocalist/guitarist Buick Audra, and drummer/bassist Jerry Roe. Their new single “AND IF MY BODY” challenges the attitudes that led to the dangerous Supreme Court ruling that overturned Roe v. Wade. The single is the lead track on their forthcoming EP, RELEASE THE REST, a limited vinyl compilation of the singles they have released since their 2020 EP, HOLD ON TO YOURSELF. The vinyl will release on 12/1 and is available for pre-order now.

Their 2021 singles, “ALTAR” and “LAND OF MEN” were written and recorded during the pandemic, tracked by the band members in Nashville, TN. The tracks focus on honoring oneself over outside feedback, as well as pushing back against male dominance in the music industry and beyond. They were mixed by Kurt Ballou and mastered by Brad Boatright. Those two singles followed STONECHILD / YOUR REIGN IS OVER, released on Indigenous Peoples Day in 2020; and HOLD ON TO YOURSELF, released on April 3rd, 2020.

The band has released two albums. BILL (2018) was recorded at Electrical Audio by Steve Albini, and DAVE (2016) was engineered and produced by the band.

Friendship Commanders will celebrate the release of “AND IF MY BODY” AND RELEASE THE REST with select tour dates throughout November and December.

Their third album will be released in 2023; it was co-produced, engineered, and mixed by Kurt Ballou, and was recorded at his Salem, MA studio, GodCity.
