The Rocket Summer Sets New Album Release
The former Island/Def Jam artist will be releasing the new effort via his own label, Aviate Records.
"I really wanted to push myself musically and lyrically with this album, searching to pull out the stories within and around me," explains Avary. "I like to write songs that are an honest reflection of what's going on in my life and in my mind while I observe and attempt to learn more about myself and this beautiful, intense world we live in."
As with previous albums from The Rocket Summer, Avary wrote and performed every note on Life Will Write The Words. Between sellout acoustic tour dates in the USA and numerous headlining and festival touring abroad, 2011 saw Avary experimenting with numerous new sounds in the studio, sounds including mandolin, a banjo, some trashcans and even a typewriter. His songwriting likewise stretched to a broader scope, examining the human existence with the advantage of both a strikingly personal eye experience and the experiential outlook of writers many years older. The result is a 12-track multi-dimensional collection that further establishes Avary as a modern-day Renaissance man with the engaging outlook embodied in the album's title Life Will Write The Words.
"To me, that phrase in a sense captures a bit of the human experience. I believe there's a song in everything," Avary says. "Literally everything you look at, you can pull a song out of it. We all have a song, we all have a story."
The Rocket Summer is currently out on the road supporting Switchfoot and playing select headlining dates along the way.
Also in the works is a headlining run in support of the album release, with more info to come in the coming weeks.
