Original Shiny Toy Guns Lineup Reunite For New Album
The group's new album, III, will be released October 23 and is the first new material by the original line-up in six years. We were sent these details:
III, the band's third album features Carah Faye Charnow, the original vocalist who, along with band mates Chad Petree (vocals/guitars), Jeremy Dawson (keyboards) and Mikey Martin (drums), propelled Shiny Toy Guns into the spotlight with their first hits "Le Disko" and "You Are The One" from their debut 2006 release We Are Pilots. Production on III, courtesy of Mirror Machines (the band's Petree and Dawson), is lush and dramatic, ranging from driving tracks like "Somewhere To Hide," "Mercy" and "The Sun" to sublime like "Wait For Me" and "Fading Listening." The album is mixed by the legendary Tony Maserati (Lady Gaga, Beyonce, Jason Mraz).
Leading up to its release, parts of "Waiting Alone" has been selectively unveiled via "#loverunner," an unbelievable journey filmed across 6,000 miles of the United States over the course of 25 days. One of the largest and most extensive projects Shiny Toy Guns have ever attempted, "#loverunner" is the visual and video interpretation of "Waiting Alone." All the parts will come together as an artistic video presented in July.
