Stream “Low” at Rock Sound

We’re excited to unveil a new track, “Low,” off of Bloom & Breathe today over at Rock Sound!

You can stream the track here.

In addition, UK fans can now preorder the record through Banquet Records here- http://www.banquetrecords.com/PNE158

Digital preorders are also available through iTunes - http://geni.us/2iRX

We’re all very excited about the way this track came out, as it was written in a very atypical way (at least for us). From the quote on Rock Sound:

"Dan really ended up leading the structure of this song with the beat, which was the spirit of the original idea. We were tired of piecing parts together at the time, and the chorus was written around the vocal melody which is unusual for us as well. Lyrically, the more I edited this song, the less I liked it, and I ended up keeping the original draft which I’ve never done. We’re all very proud of the way it came together in the end and is one of our collective favorite tracks on the album."  - Kevin

We hope you all enjoy!  Bloom & Breathe is out October 21st!

Anonymous said: You guys saved me, thank you for doing what you do. Favorites hands down

Music is definitely the reason I wake up in the morning and the reason I can’t sleep at night. It’s incredible that others are affected by what we create and that means a lot to us. I’m not sure what you mean by “saved me,” but I can tell you this. Keep existing. It’s worth it.

A few months ago we ventured off to an abandoned church in Gary, Indiana along with the Audiotree crew to film a new music video. We’re happy to share that video with you all today.

Anonymous said: What guitars do you all use?

Kevin plays a Gibson les paul double cutaway with Seymour Duncan stacked P90 pickups.

Dan plays a custom Warmoth telecaster deluxe with a Fender strat neck. It has a humbucker at the neck and a single-coil bridge pickup.

Ethan plays 2 Fender telecasters. One is a ‘69 thinline, the other is a ‘72 telecaster deluxe. They both have a single American Fender wide range humbucker in the neck position. All tone knobs and selectors have been removed and each guitar has a single volume knob.

Mike plays a Gibson grabber
