The Fervor Release New Album on MMJ Frontman Yim Yames' Label

Louisville, Kentucky quartet The Fervor have teamed up with My Morning Jacket frontman Yim Yames to release their ethereal new full-length Arise, Great Warrior on his label, Removador Recordings & Solutions. The album is out now digitally along with a CD version available through SonaBLASTand LP from Karate Body. With its combination of mysterious yet timeless lyrics and brooding arrangements, Arise is a poignant and gripping ride from start to finish.

The first words on the record uttered by frontwoman Natalie Felker are “Arise, great warrior / inside you’re a destroyer / by the time we see the sun / you’re already on the run.” Delivered in her husky voice with its distinct and seductive tone, she paints a mystical, dreamlike picture. Alongside Natalie’s radiant vocals and shimmering keys, guitarist Ben Felker, bassist Michael Campbell and drummer Mat Herron create hypnotic atmospheres in each song that stomp and crash toward epic climaxes.

Arise was produced by Charles Gonzalez, who recorded with the band in San Francisco, where they experienced a rebirth of sorts. Rather than aiming for note-for-note perfection, the group strived to capture an enrapturing performance of each song. The Fervor then headed back to Louisville to mix the album with engineer Kevin Ratterman (My Morning Jacket, Wax Fang). By keeping the focus on the power of what the four band members can do together in a room, the result is an album fueled by an energy that feels potent and organic around every corner. All the exciting twists and turns build up to an ultimate catharsis as the haunting final notes of “Let’s Get Loaded” gently ring out.
