Tallhart is gearing up to release their Equal Vision Records/Rory Records debut EP this spring. The album — a follow-up to two previous self-releases, 2010's The Blue and Grey
EP and 2011 full-length Sister of Mine
— was recorded in Tampa with production assistance from Bemis, Tim McTague (of Underoath), and Dean Tidey (of Feeder). First track "Fever (Sister Of Mine)" drops March 6 as a digital single.
PRESS QUOTE FROM BEMIS: “They are TALLHART. A brilliant young band from Tampa who can write a stadium rock-level anthem like nobody's business but don't shy away from lovely, dense songwriting. They also put on a sickeningly great live show ... To me, they combine the best elements of early U2, Manchester Orchestra and sort of a young Pearl Jam (that last one is a pretty weird call, but I stand by it): basically, smart and brave music, rich with a swelling, unfiltered feeling. I'll be working closely with them on many aspects of their music and the record, and am extremely excited for the release of their EVR/Rory Records debut EP.”
Tallhart has received numerous accolades from CL, making our album of the year lists two consecutive years in a row (in 2010 and 2011 respectively), and also earning a nod in our 25 of 2010 list.
Tallhart embarks on a tour this spring with indie pop labelmates Eisley March 8-April 1, and with Say Anything, Kevin Devine and the Goddamn Band and Fake Problems April 13-May 3; the tour hits Orlando's Beacham Theatre on April 25.
