Sing The Word Hope In Four Part Harmony

Release Date: 1st June 2009 | Label: Field Records

Summer 2009 sees Maybeshewill release ‘Sing The Word Hope In Four-Part Harmony’, less than 12 months after their debut LP ‘Not For Want Of Trying’ hit the shelves.

The band have once again eschewed the ‘industry’ route whilst making this record – Shunning studios in favour of a DIY approach to recording, mixing and mastering the material in their rehearsal space on a budget of literally nothing. Taking this ethos even further, the band choose to book their own shows and run their own Press and PR company (Robot Needs Home) rather than employ anyone else to do these jobs for them.

‘Sing The Word Hope In Four-Part Harmony’ once again takes the wide-screen expanses and beauty of Post-Rock and combines it with the immediacy and brutality of hardcore. This is an intentionally ‘accessible’ instrumental record – The climaxes and breakdowns condensed into a concise thirty minutes of noise.

It’s difficult for an instrumental band to make a serious social statement without the use of lyrics, but ‘Sing The Word Hope In Four-Part Harmony’ is just that. Set against the background of the current recession, and born out of six months of touring their debut LP, this album is a journal of four twenty-something’s thoughts and experiences during tough times.

Maybeshewill are on tour throughout May with ‘And So I Watch You From Afar’ (Smalltown America) with the album released on Monday 1st June through Field Records in the UK and in July through Xtal in Japan.

Υπέροχα νέα (αν και το This is an intentionally ‘accessible’ instrumental record μου δημιούργησε περίεργα συναισθήματα), αν σε αυτά προσθέσεις τις δύο ημέρες που θα εμφανιστούν στην Αθήνα.

Ναι αυτή η δήλωση είναι λιγάκι ανησυχητική αλλά ελπίζω να μην μας απογοητεύσουν.
