THE ALMOST--the acclaimed rock group fronted by lead vocalist/guitarist AARON GILLESPIE--will return April 9 with their third album FEAR INSIDE OUR BONES for Tooth & Nail/EMI/Universal. The album's preview track is "Ghost," which echoes with unbridled blues intensity before converging on a divinely heavy refrain.
THE ALMOST are in the midst of a cross-country tour previewing the new songs for their rising fan base nationwide. In between headlining shows, the band will team with Finch for their "What It Is To Burn" tour this spring, while AARON and JAY VILARDI lead guitarist for The Almost will also join the To Write Love On Her Arms tour for a handful of acoustic performances. See all current dates listed below.
To cut FEAR INSIDE OUR BONES, The Almost retreated to Nashville's Omni Studios with producer Marshall Altman (Tom Morello, Ingrid Michaelson, William Fitzsimmons). All the songs were recorded together in a single room completely live. "It wasn't a piecemeal process as the majority of modern records are," explains GILLESPIE. "The album was born at that moment from our collective blood, sweat and tears." In those five days, the musicians tapped into elegantly visceral energy built from a blues-rock vibe that they modernized. Other album highlights include the relentless rocker "Fight Song," the powerful and complicated anthem "I Won't Let Go," and "I'm Down" which streams ahead like a Southern freight train before the singer soulfully proclaims in the chorus, "Don't count me out."
Across the entire album, GILLESPIE continues to wear his heart on his sleeve. He doesn't hold anything back within the lyrics or music. Amidst all of the thundering rhythms and massive riffs, THE ALMOST's honesty re-sounds the loudest. "There's hope," GILLESPIE concludes. "People are free to feel the way they feel and go through what they are going through. Music is the great communicator. This is my soundtrack, heartbeat and who I want to be. I hope everyone feels like this record belongs to them."
THE ALMOST have come a long way since the release of their 2007 debut Southern Weather (Tooth & Nail/Universal). Taking a break from the gold-selling Underoath, the project allowed GILLESPIE to explore other musical avenues, playing every instrument and singing. However, everything truly came to life on their sophomore 2009's Monster, Monster. The line-up--AARON GILLESPIE (lead vocalist/lyrics/guitar), JAY VILARDI (guitars), DUSTY REDMON (guitars), JON THOMPSON (bass), JOE MUSTEN (drums)--had solidified and they played to rabid crowds around the world.
