Longtime Christian band, The Found, has launched a new album and a new direction. The “church band” has transitioned to playing and recording more original material.
From their press release:
The Found in its current incarnation formed in February 2012, after making the transition from a “church band” to performing original material exclusively. Founding guitarists Taylor Weston and Jacob Paxton were joined by Jeremy Jacobs on bass, Tim Davis on drums, and Blake Weston as lead vocalist. After writing and recording “Ascend The Breaking Day”, they began to play extensively in the central Arkansas area in support of the album.
“Ascend The Breaking Day” is their latest project available online in various venues.
About the album, the band stated in a press release:
“Ascend The Breaking Day” is an album written and recorded by The Found during 2012 and released in January of 2013. It is available in CD format, as well as various digital retailers such as iTunes, Amazon MP3, Google Play, CD Baby, and more. Drawing heavily from the alternative and riff rock acts of the late 90’s and early 00’s, as well as many other diverse influences, “Ascend The Breaking Day” is both unique and familiar, accessible and yet still complex.
Starting out with the thunderous march of “Benediction”, which recalls the best of Thrice and Blindside, the album takes many twists ands turns both musically and lyrically, but all undeniably part of the same story. Songs like “Beautiful Deluge”, “Uncertainty”, and “Take Me Home” owe much to greats like Sanctus Real, Switchfoot, Stavesacre, and The Juliana Theory, while more laid-back (but still powerful) numbers “Hear”, “Into the Wild”, “Song In G”, and “Spring” recall U2, Further Seems Forever, and As Cities Burn, and there are even some subtle punk leanings on “Rejoice” and Propaganda”.
The lyrics touch every facet of the human experience: love, faith, war, joy, sadness, and much more. The listener is often the voice in the song, expressing him/herself through it. Whether it’s the glorious surrender in “Beautiful Deluge” and “Into the Wild”, the joy of a reawakening to purpose and life in “Spring”, the matter-of-fact reminiscence of “Song In G”, or the calls for rescue found in “Uncertainty” and “Take Me Home”, the feeling of intimacy is immediate.
“Ascend Breaking Day” is a collection of songs that is as powerful as it is heartfelt, and an overflow of the hands and hearts of five men who see it as their calling to communicate love, truth, and beauty through music, with the hope that their words and deeds will outlast them in the hearts and minds of others.
The album is available via iTunes, Amazon, cd baby and Google play. Below are the links to each site where you can listen to a trailer of the album and purchase a copy.
