Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 24, 2005
Ten Story Relapse has just announced the upcoming release of its third album, ÂThe Obvious Blindside.Â Much like their highly acclaimed sophomore effort ÂFrequency,Â Ten Story Relapse continues to explore language and music through the geography of relationships--charting the making and the undoing of them.
Ten Story Relapse is clearly enjoying the excitement of being an independent band on the verge of breaking through to a wider audience. TheyÂve recently signed an agreement to have their music distributed at Wal Mart stores nationwide via the new "Zvue" multi purpose media player. Three advance demo tracks have been charting in the top 20 on garageband.com (the largest independent music showcase website in the world). Meanwhile, Podcasts and internet radio stations have helped propel the band to an international audience via the internet. One internet site (Myspace.com) reports that Ten Story Relapse has amassed over 18,000 fans in the last 3 months. In addition, MusicRebellion.com recently stepped in and has positioned TSR as the featured artist on the front page of their site.
ÂTo say that we are humbled and energized by the response weÂve gotten would be an understatement,Â says the band. ÂWe canÂt thank everyone enough who has so freely embraced our music and shared it with others.Â
When asked about the title of the new recording, the band issued the following statement: ÂThe concept evolved from several unknowns as we embarked on recording this collection of songs...First, we had expanded our lineup, and we focused on staying away from any pre-conceptions regarding how the project should sound. Secondly, we worked hard to avoid getting hung up on stylism and we decided not to shape the recording to fit into any specific category. In the end, we think we found instrumental and thematic threads via the culmination of some happy accidents. Several of the tracks hold hands from a sonic perspective and there are characters and messages that roam from song to song. Ultimately, it was the record we were supposed to make.Â
Fans of ÂfrequencyÂ will notice a nod to the last record via the first 20 seconds of ÂThe Obvious Blindside.Â
The next live performance of Ten Story Relapse serves as the bandÂs CD release party for ÂThe Obvious Blindside.Â The show is slated for July 23rd at Andrews Upstairs in Atlanta, Georgia.
