Sullivan Announce New Album

Posted by - 03:01 PM on 08/06/14
Sullivan will release Heavy is the Head on October 28th.
We discussed our options for a very long time and in the end, we wanted to be comfortable with whomever we worked with. Signing to Spartan was the obvious choice for us, since we had such a great working relationship with John Frazier going back to the Tooth & Nail days. It's a rare occasion when you can revamp your career on a brand new label, yet have the head start of a great connection with your label guy. Watching Spartan grow and then deciding to start Sullivan again was serendipitous. It was meant to be. There is no better feeling than having a team that's not only on the same page as you, but is also eager to grow just as much as you are. Our successes, and our pursuits are in tandem. That becomes more and more apparent every day, and that is, comfortable.

There is a longer write-up on the Spartan Records website, including information about the album, but it's got super-flowery writing THAT I CAN'T STAAAAAND, like this:

Tension. There exists no better word to describe the thematic throughline that weaves together all eleven tracks on Heavy Is The Head. The album is a cinematic push and pull of trepidation, angst, and in certain moments, benevolence. The song “You Don’t Mean It,” unlatches the record with lush programming, driving percussion, and Paschal’s use of timeless imagery. At a mere thirty-seven seconds, the album explodes into the first of many anthemic choruses.
Several tracks later on “What’s Good For The King,” the listener experiences a sonic misdirect. An acoustic guitar, charming layers, lone piano notes, and vulnerable vocals open up the track, only to be confronted by a wall of guitars and drums at the song’s soaring chorus.

Stuff just makes me sad. I got an English B.A., and I'm pretty sure I spent 4 years learning exactly how to NOT write like that.
