SotR is hard at work on our
second studio album. We're anticipating a release party in Spring of 2013 - but
details are pending on that. Currently, the band has almost completed tracking 8
songs, including some we have never played live before. We are simultaneously still
in writing mode, and are putting finishing touches on another 3-4 new originals.
what can you expect from the new album? Will it be like our debut? In some ways
yes, and in other ways not at all. The sound of the band has evolved and you're
going to find a broader mix of influences on the new record. You're going to find
some of our heaviest, most intimate, most quirky, most aggressive, and most soulful
songs yet on this record. While the songs are unmistakeably SotR, the album will
show more diversity and will include some unexpected surprises. That probably doesn't
tell you very much, but it's all I got, folks.
We're planning for the album to be released
simultaneously on CD and for download online, and we'll stream some samples for
you in advance. For the most current updates on the recording process and the run-up
to the release, follow us on Twitter (@Sonsoftheradio) or Facebook.
That's about all for now.
if you have input or comments on what you'd like to hear out of the band, or just
want to show some love, leave us a comment.
We'll catch you at a show very soon.
