New York, NY (PRWEB) September 5, 2006
City Canyons Records announced today the special limited release of The Alrights new album, HIGH SCHOOL to select online and retail stores, with national distribution to follow on October 17. The Alrights, based in Duluth, Minnesota will tour extensively in support of HIGH SCHOOL throughout the midwest and northeast with the support of a a national radio promotion throughout North America in association with college, independent and Triple A stations. The radio promotion, also kicking off today, will be handled by Planetary Group in Boston, MA.
HIGH SCHOOL features catchy, memorable, original material with songs featuring a rich gumbo of musical influences -- all melding into one tasty sonic treat. Whether music fans listen to HIGH SCHOOL in its recorded form or have the pleasure of seeing the band live on its current tour, they will inevitably hear true diversity. One song is rock, another is soul influenced. One sounds like a spiritual, another punk. One may be smooth and exact with complex vocal harmonies and thoughtful arrangements, the next might be raw, almost garage. Whatever form each song takes, the music comes together in a superb and seamless whole and marks the band as among the best young alternative rockers in North America.
The core of The Alrights is the musical wizardry of vocalist and guitarist/ivory tickler Toby Churchill. The other components that further refine the distinctive sound of the band are the rock solid presence of Chad "Chavo" Amborn on drums and the sweet harmonies and the steady yet fluid, funky and emotional bass playing of Danny Cosgrove
