Birmingham, Alabama’s rock & soul octet St. Paul & The Broken Bones return on September 9th with their highly-anticipated sophomore album Sea Of Noise (RECORDS). The new album features the heart pounding infusion of old school R&B, soul, funk and rock that St. Paul & The Broken Bones have built their reputation on. Sea Of Noise documents a band going through an artistic evolution, elevating their sound to new heights. Many of the new songs are tied together by a common theme that serves as an overall commentary on society. The music displays new tones and sonic exploration that can be immediately heard in the opening track “Crumbling Light Posts, Pt. 1”, which serves as a three-part recurring premise throughout Sea Of Noise.
Refusing to settle for the status quo, dynamic lead singer/songwriter Paul Janeway and his bandmates challenged themselves throughout the creative process to create an album that is inspiring, heartfelt and fun; as well as intelligent, thoughtful and socially conscious. The rousing “All I Ever Wonder” challenges apathetic nature, the soulful “I’ll Be Your Woman” redefines gender roles, while “Waves” looks at our societal short attention span, and the firey “Burning Rome” conveys the realization that faith should reside within and not within a manmade framework. St. Paul & The Broken Bones have successfully made a soul record with a conscience.
“We could not be more excited to have this new St. Paul & the Broken Bones album as our first album release on RECORDS. This group defies gravity with their high level of artistry and unique musicianship. They’ve built their fan base organically, one person at a time, as evidenced by the success of their first album” says Barry Weiss, RECORDS Partner & Co-founder.
