Animal Years

“We borrowed the name from a Josh Ritter album,” Animal Years singer-songwriter-guitarist Mike McFadden says of his band’s moniker. “Originally, we just liked the way the phrase sounded. But the more we thought about it, the more it meant to us, and we started saying things like ‘Live your life in animal years.’ If you knew that you’d only be around for a few years, you’d do things differently. That’s how we try to operate as a band; we try to go for it every day, like we’re gonna die tomorrow.”
