BIG Something is launching their 6th studio album ‘Escape’ which comes out on all major platforms this Friday October 9th and is now available to order at www.bigsomething.com.
Produced by John Custer and Big Something at Ovation Sound, ‘Escape’ showcases the evolution of the band’s signature sound and their diverse range of songs. “We made a conscious choice with this album to get back to our roots musically. We wanted something that hit really hard but was danceable and upbeat,” explains drummer Ben Vinograd. “I think it’s a great portrait of where we came from and what we’ve grown into musically over the last 10 years.”
Guitarist and front man Nick MacDaniels adds, “I think making this album was a pretty powerful experience for us. It was the first time we tried to write songs again after our lyricist Paul passed away and also the first time we’d ever gone into a recording session without anything prepared. It was a nice breath of fresh air to work on something from scratch together in the studio with our producer John and it was also really special to record the last song that Paul and I ever wrote together ‘Machines.’”
“The songs themselves are all centered around the theme of escape,” MacDaniels continues. “What it means to ‘escape’ can be interpreted in a lot of different ways: sometimes positive; you're escaping from things that are holding you down or holding you back. Sometimes negative; escaping from reality in a way that's not healthy. I was thinking about that concept before we started recording last Summer. And that was long before quarantine and the pandemic hit. Back then I would have never imagined the world would look like this just a year later, but it’s also now a strangely fitting time for us to release this album.”
To celebrate the release of the new record, Big Something will premiere a video album listening party on Thursday October 8th followed by a FREE multi-cam virtual concert on Friday October 9th that will air across multiple platforms including NUGS TV, Live for Live Music, YouTube and more.
