“THIS TIME IT’S DIFFERENT”: EVANS BLUE SET TO RELEASE FIRST SONG FROM THEIR UPCOMING 4TH ALBUM ON iTUNES TUESDAY, OCTOBER 4TH
Traverse City MI (28 September 2011) – Rock band EVANS BLUE is back in the Sounds+Sights Studios in Traverse City, Michigan, working on their 4th studio album with long-time producer Trevor Kustiak. By popular demand from their fans, the band will release “This Time It’s Different,” the first song from the new album, on Tuesday, October 4th, in honor of bass player Joe Pitter’s birthday. They will follow up the release with a Main Stage performance at BuzzFest 27 in Houston, TX on October 22nd, guitarist Parker Lauzon’s birthday.
When asked about the new album, singer Dan Chandler said, “With the last record, we were writing songs before I even met the guys in person, really fast. Since then, we’ve grown a ton as a band: the chemistry between each member, the relationships, and the trust we have developed with each other.” He continues, “I think people will hear a big difference between this record and the last one; the album has a lot to say this time around, and it comes from every one of us in the band.”
Evans Blue plans to have the new album completed and ready to release in time for Christmas with a radio push for “This Time It’s Different” at the top of 2012.
Evans Blue debuted at #1 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart in 2006 with The Melody and the Energetic Nature of Volume, which spawned the Top 5 single “Cold (But I’m Still Here).” They were nominated for a 2006 Juno Award for Best New Group. Their second album, THE PURSUIT BEGINS WHEN THIS portrayal OF LIFE ENDS, was released in July 2007 and debuted at #44* on the Billboard Top 200.
