Blackledge Music (with distribution by Atlantic/ADA) has decided to make changes to the final version of THESE GREEN EYES’ forthcoming RELAPSE TO RECOVERY album, which is due out March 24.
Due to a barrage of Internet leaks, the label will now be releasing the physical CD with two exclusive bonus tracks (“Friends Like These” and “Pops”). These songs will not be available on digital outlets such as iTunes and Amazon. Additional liner notes, album credits and lyrics will be made available on the band’s Myspace page for download.
Tackling issues of friendship, loss, remorse, and ultimately hope, RELAPSE TO RECOVERY boils down five years of trials and tribulations as a unit, culminating with the tragic and unexpected loss of a close band friend to suicide.
Varying from a world-weary worldview (opener "At The End") to high octane vendettas (the scream-along chorus of "Sucker Punch") to ruminations on the loss of friendship (the wistful closer "Time Of Our Lives"), THESE GREEN EYES—Colin Cunningham (vocals), Greg Mauro (guitars), Jeff Krenn (guitars), Zach Braz (bass), Mark Brundrett (drums)--have channeled their punk, post-hardcore, and arena rock influences into an anthemic wall of sound that's all their own.
Stay tuned for news about the band’s upcoming U.S. tour, which is set to include 3 stops along the Warped Tour route later this summer.
