T&N Sign The WeddingWe'd like to officially welcome The Wedding to the Tooth & Nail Family! Their new album "No Direction" will be available in stores and online September 25th.

The Wedding first formed in 2008 and despite a few lineup changes, quickly created a stir with their soaring rock anthems. The band finally hit its stride with the addition of front man Matt Shelton (formerly of Island Records’ Letter Kills.)

On the album’s title, Shelton explains, "No Direction" means cutting ties with the idea that you can prepare your life in such a way to keep you from danger. As C.S. Lewis said, it's an illusion of safety. We are meant to live life unabashed and free, and this can only happen in the face of danger; which to most is the idea of not knowing where you are going. It is when we have No Direction at all and still we press on, trusting that the great unknown will be our rescue and not the demise we are so fearful of. We went into making this record with complete reckless abandon. We tried to write the record that we wanted and needed to hear.”

Consisting of 12 tracks, No Direction was produced by Jasen Rauch (Breaking Benjamin) at Harker House Studios in Springfield, TN, and features guest vocals by Dan Marsala of The Story of The Year on the track “The Lesser Worth.”

This band has been around a long time. Their self-titled and Polarity with the original vocalist used to be my jam back in the day. And really dug their EPs with the new guy too. Hopefully signing to Tooth & Nail will be their ticket to bigger and better things. Seems like they've been flying just under the radar for way too long.
