XO, featuring Jake Turner and Jeff Turner of Say Anything, will release their debut full-length album, Heart, on February 4, 2014.

“Heart is a collection of songs based on my experiences with past loves,” explains Jeff.

“Even in the worst scenario, there is hope for someone to come along and swoop you off your feet. The story of the album is about finding love. In a way, by going through your happiest and darkest moments together, you complete your heart.”

The band will release the album through Rory Records, Max Bemis of Say Anything’s imprint within Equal Vision Records. The label also just released XO’s two-song digital single/7” vinyl featuring new songs - “Fault” and “No Feeling” – which can both be heard HERE. Rory Records boasts a diverse lineup of established and up-and-coming indie artists including Saves The Day, Matt Pryor, Pretty & Nice, Tallhart and more.

Established in 2004 in the Turner’s hometown of Atlanta, GA, and now currently based in Long Beach, CA, XO blends together a unique mixture of indie rock and shoegaze while incorporating visual elements such as projected videos, images and light during live shows.

The album was recorded with Parker Case at the Hurley Studios in Costa Mesa, CA, with great emphasis on creating a wide variety of unique, airy guitar tones.

Prior to hitting the studio, the band shared their ultimate vision for the album and overall XO experience stating, "We’re working on creating a completely immersive experience when you hear our recordings and see our band. The songs are mostly love songs, sometimes anti-love songs, and they deal with death and the ever-dying heart (figuratively and literally). The lyrics are definitely important to the music but the music is the guide, causing/releasing tension when needed…we have been approaching the music more like an orchestra of guitars, switching tunings almost every song, to create specific vibrations and hums, that drone along for a more cerebral experience. One that will be continued into the live show with projection of corresponding visuals to the songs."

So excited for this. Jake and Jeff really know what they're doing with this project and I'm excited to hear how much it's evolved since that first EP.

I'll definitely pick it up. I picked up their EP years ago at a show and loved it. I still throw it on every once and awhile.

B-side to that 7" isn't bad either. Glad these dudes finally found a sound to settle on that works for them.
