Mac Swan & Black Holly is a Old Time and Hardcore band based in Burlington VT.
This EP features our friend Rudy Kiburis on Bass. Sadly, Rudy passed away on June 30 2012. He was a really top shelf human being and is missed sorely. The last song here entitled "Hold on to the Cold" was recorded on during our last practice with Rudy. During that practice we reworked the song from it's original arrangement to it's current state which was decidedly much heavier than anything we had done before. Rudy's contributions to the bands sound and evolution are apparent in that song and continue to influence us all to this day.
All of these songs were recorded as demos but after Rudy's passing we decided to give them a little bit of love in the studio and put it out as our first EP in his memory. Thanks for listening. RIP Rude.
