California Alternative-Folk/Americana outfit Anton Kellner & The Lone Stars is proud to announce the release of Understand, the second album since their 2014 release, You Were The Fire. The album, will be released digitally on 2/26/16, but fans can also expect an LP release later in the year. Understand was produced by Anton Kellner and Nolan Perry, mixed and mastered by Nolan Perry. The album looks from the outside-in on the daily struggles and emotions of others who seek help and comfort. Anton Kellner states, “I strongly felt the need to address these emotions, but needed a medium to communicate my thoughts, so I figured why not turn them into a record.” For the first time, Anton Kellner is not taking a personal approach to his songwriting, but rather pens stories about real people and the drastic situations that he has witnessed over the years. Here is what Anton Kellner had to say about Understand:
"We took a lot of risks with it, and dared to step into stories that were outside our comfort level. We are very proud of the end result, and truly believe that this is simply ‘our album’” - Anton Kellner
