New release from: CROOKED SHAPES – Crooked Shapes (November 19, 2021)
Crooked Shapes announce self-titled debut album release!
Their faces may be familiar to some, but there is no doubt that the new rock n’ roll band are ready to deliver a fresh take on rock with their debut album this November!
Hailing from Reading UK, the band is an alternative melodic hard rock group that fire up the senses with no-nonsense sonics that are sure to go down a storm with rock fans. Taking their cue from British rock n’ blues heritage acts like Free and Bad Company, whilst infusing with influence from grunge rock icons Soundgarden and Alice In Chains, Crooked Shapes add their own flavour with a sound far bigger than what you’d expect from a three-piece band!
Expect cutting yet melodic vocals and harmonies, with hard-hitting guitars, bass, and drums that weave curveball time signatures across the nine tracks featured on the upcoming long-player record. More than meets the eye? You bet!
The songs on the upcoming album see the band stepping up to the plate following the release of 2019’s Fallout EP. With honest tracks that reflect real human struggles, passion, and lyrical themes that hold weight with their purpose, this album is the first true inwards touchpoint for the young Berkshire band.
Guitarist and lead vocalist George Twydell explains, “The new album is centered around the human experience, specifically ours, our mental health and the exposure to difficult times when it came to writing the songs featured on the album. It wasn’t a deliberate intention, it just happened. Once we understood what we were trying to get across in the music and lyrics, we realised the tracks were exploring the different stages of depression and grief, starting from anger/denial through to sadness, then acceptance and recovery.”
From the first track, the melodic Molotov that is “Fire”, to album closer “Don’t Look Back”, this debut album is a journey of emotion through the sound of music, and it is testimony to the hard work put in as the band continues to work towards their own authentic, progressive, and potent sound. Expect new music videos, tour dates, and more to be announced soon by this exciting, emerging rock act!
Self-produced by the band, Crooked Shapes is released 19th November 2021.
