ALBUM RELEASE - JUNE 9TH, 2017

 

 

Denver, Colorado trio Abrams announces new full-length album Morning, to be released June 9th on Sailor Records.

The sophomore album by Abrams, Morning perfects the sound put forth on the 2015 debut, Lust. Love. Loss. Yearning, driving, and hook-laden, the ten songs on Morning summon a soulful version of heavy rock that dwells in the same mountain range as later Mastodon, Baroness, and Mark Lanegan.

Tracks like "Worlds Away," "18 Weeks," "Rivers," "Burned," and "Mourning" (featuring guest vocals by Phil Pendergast of hometown Denver pals Khemmis) are earth-shakers that veer from bittersweetness to defiance to rage. Guitarist Zachary Amster's simple leads shine majestically over bassist Taylor Iversen's fuzz and crunch, and drummer Geoffrey Cotton's tom-heavy propulsion. Amster and Iversen both sing – world-weary yet full of fire. Iversen describes the lyrical themes: 

"The concept we put forth with this album is one of duality. Morning and mourning. The songs represent to us a realization that all good things come with eventual bad things. There's that morning where the sun is bright and the birds are chirping and everything seems possible. At the end of the day, it wasn't what you hoped it would be. Every day you wake up and hope, and every night you go to sleep and mourn."

Hear Morning's almost-title track "Mourning," featuring Phil Pendergast of Khemmis, here:

Morning was recorded by Andy Patterson (SubRosa, Cult Leader) and Dave Otero (Cobalt, Cattle Decapitation), and was mixed and mastered by Otero.
 

The cover art and layout are by Samantha Muljat (Earth, Goatsnake).
