– "Internal Sounds," the new album from The Sadies, will be released Sept. 17 on Yep Roc
The album's lead track, The First 5 Minutes, can be heard online. In celebration of the album, The Sadies are currently in the midst of a Canadian tour.
Recorded in Toronto, the 11-track album was produced by The Sadies' Dallas Good (guitars, organ, vocals) and mixed by Peter J. Moore. The album also features band members Travis Good (guitars, fiddle, vocals), Sean Dean (bass) and Mike Belitsky (drums).
"There was a conscious effort to deliver a finished product that wouldn't suffer from a deadline or budget," said Dallas Good. "We recorded this record over a span of a year, in session for 20-plus days. By the end, we'd spent every dime we had and used up every favor. There is usually a sense of immediacy to our records, maybe because we make a lot of them. I didn't want that this time."
Formed in Toronto in 1994, the band has released 16 studio albums, including 2010's "Darker Circles."
Songs on the CD are:
1. The First 5 Minutes
2. So Much Blood
3. The Very Beginning
4. Starting All Over Again
