Solid State Records have set a September 27th release date for Oh, Sleeper's third studio album, Children of Fire.
Produced by Andreas Magnusson (Black Dahlia Murder, Haste The Day) and mixed by Machine (Lamb of God, Chiodos), Children of Fire features twelve tracks. The band has premiered the song, "Endseekers," here.
"With every record we try to push the limits of what we can do with our sound," says guitarist James Erwin. "This record is an expansion of our sound and the best incarnation of the band to date. Also this is the most in depth we ever taken a concept record. Instead of 12 different stories that tie together around one theme, this album is one complete story where every track acts as a chapter in that story. Listeners will really have to grasp every part of the story to understand it fully."
"Children of Fire is being established as a flag to rally under," says vocalist Kinard. "The name, to us, represents a generation born into a time that forced them to band together, stand firm in their beliefs against modern ideology and skepticism, and prevail as a victorious few, holding true to the beliefs held deep in their hearts. Children of Fire is a title that means nothing less than unshakeable and end-seeking determination. The character represented throughout the album endures a perilous journey testing any and all weaknesses she possesses. It isn't until the end, when she has faced every fear and answered every question planted deep in her mind that she emerges a beaten, battered, and bloody, but victorious, child of fire."
