Hurricane Bells Set New Album Release

(CCP) Hurricane Bells will release their sophomore album Tides and Tales on October 25th, 2011 via band architect Steve Schiltz's own Invisible Brigades label.

Tides and Tales is an immediate, compelling 12-song collection that ranges from effortlessly catchy (the chiming power pop of "The Ghost Of Her"; the fuzzy guitar-laced "House On Fire") to quietly haunting and beautiful (the gentle "Blue Blue Moon"; the lilting "Before I'm Gone"; the heart-rending "Flowers In The Dirt") to propulsive and soaring (the dynamic "Possibilities", the driving "Let's Go").

As with Hurricane Bells' debut Tonight Is The Ghost, the album was produced and mixed entirely by Schiltz (longtime front man of Longwave), at his Olé Recording studio in Queens, NY, last fall. This time, however, he recorded the tracks with the help of a few friends, including Ashen Keilyn (Scout), a Hurricane Bells touring mainstay; Justin Furstenfeld (Blue October); and Christian Bongers (bass) and Colin Brooks (drums), who round out the Hurricane Bells live band.

In early June, Hurricane Bells launched a PledgeMusic campaign to support the completion of Tides and Tales. The campaign will remain underway for another three weeks and the funds raised will directly contribute to the manufacturing, touring and promotion of the album. Multiple incentives are being offered to fans for pledging, including exclusive vinyl, signed CDs and t-shirts, and a house concert by the band, among many others. Hurricane Bells will also donate a portion of all PledgeMusic campaign proceeds to the nonprofit Education Through Music (http://www.etmonline.org/).

Hurricane Bells will play a number of hometown New York City shows over the next two months: tomorrow evening at City Winery supporting Nicole Atkins and the Black Sea; August 30th supporting Robbers On High Street at Brooklyn Bowl; a solo acoustic show September 30th at CULTUREFix with Jimmy Gnecco from Ours; and October 27th at the Mercury Lounge for a record release show. A full itinerary is below and more touring news will be announced soon.
