NASHVILLE, TN (Press Release, October 30, 2015) - Croakin’ Poets’ platinum-selling recording artists, Sister Hazel, will release their first new album in five years, Lighter In The Dark, February 2016. The long-awaited 14-track collection, produced by noted Nashville producer Chip Matthews (Lady A, Brooks & Dunn), represents the band's entrée into the country music genre. Fans ordering the CD at the live shows or the digital album from iTunes will receive an instant download of a sure-to-be fan favorite, “We Got It All Tonight.” Preorder the album here.
While touring in support of their ninth studio album, Sister Hazel will preview some of the brand-new songs. From the intro ballad, “Fall off the Map,” to the heartfelt “Something to Believe In,” to the fun-loving good times of “Kiss Me Without Whiskey” and “Karaoke Song” featuring Darius Rucker, Lighter In The Dark is the first Sister Hazel album to showcase the band's Southern Rock/Country side. The band embraces their roots and Florida music influences wholeheartedly. Each member of the group is involved in writing and performing their songs, and the result is a culmination of 20 years of friendship and musical stylings.
“The five years since our last record has been anything but a straight and clear path,” states bassist/vocalist Jett Beres. “After making records together for over 20 years, we found ourselves struggling to find The Sound; a body of work that would honestly represent who each of us were as a band and as individuals. The music that was created was our “lighter in the dark.” The songs that form this record slowly began to illuminate a clarity of direction and creativity for us. In choosing a record title, this lyric from the song “Something to Believe In” became the clear choice to represent our journey, our struggles, and ultimately our deliverance.”
