and special guest From Red Sun

Advance Base is the melancholic soft rock recording project of Chicago, IL singer/songwriter Owen Ashworth (formerly of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone). Using a two-handed arsenal of electric piano, Omnichord, samplers, effect pedals & drum machines, Ashworth builds minimalist, heavy-hearted, & nostalgia-obsessed ballads around his conversational baritone. The warm, electronic sound of Advance Base has been described as "lo-fi," "depressed" & "weirdly uplifting." Animal Companionship, the third & most recent "studio" album by Advance Base, was released in 2018 by Run For Cover Records / Orindal Records.

Since then, Advance Base has released Wall of Tears & Other-Songs I Didn't Write, a home-recorded collection of (mostly) country/Americana covers arranged for electronic instruments & Live at Home, a collection of mid-quarantine livestream concert performances & the closest representation of an Advance Base live set commercially available. A new single titled ”Little Sable Point Lighthouse” was released in 2022.

“It’s with no exaggeration we describe Owen Ashworth as one of the most consistent and important songwriters in contemporary indie music." - Various Small Flames "A Raymond Carver short story collection set to music by a Joan of Arc-era OMD" - MOJO Magazine
