The Birmingham big band is back with a preview for their upcoming album, Sea of Noise (out Sept. 9), delivering the same soul sound that launched them into national stardom. According to frontman, Paul Janeway, the new record bears the same heart and soul of Half the City, their first album, but with a tightened, more-refined sound.
“If we had been forced to go into a studio a year and a half ago, we probably would have done a better version of Half the City,” Janeway shared on the band’s Facebook page. “There would have been nothing wrong with that. But we started evolving, or changing.”
The release of the highly anticipated, second album will pair with another national tour, and Nashville will host St. Paul and the Broken Bones on the evening it drops. Catch them at The Basement East on Sept. 9, and be sure to listen to their brand new single, “All I Ever Wonder” and let us know what you think.
