Dada’s last major label record, a self-titled album, was released on MCA in 1998, about the time Gurley said the labels started to crumble. Any future releases, and he promises there will be one, will likely be released independently.
For now, Gurley is happy to be out on the road, making music with his friends and continuing a ride that he has never believed would end.
“I never thought I wouldn’t be doing it,” he said. “I never thought I’d stop doing it because even when it was happening I knew this was the most important thing that ever happened to me and the biggest thing. I feel fortunate that we’re all still in the world and still making music.”
