San Diego based rock band My Iron Lung has announced plans to release their debut full-length album, Relief, on July 7th via Pure Noise Records. This will be the band's follow-up to their 2013 EP Grief. Pre-orders will launch later in May.
"Relief differs from Grief in a few different ways, but I feel that the biggest difference is that this record was written almost entirely as an instrumental record first and then lyrics were added," says guitarist Anays Torres. "Grief was the exact opposite; the songs were already put together lyrically, than other members of the group added in their parts. Collectively, we feel that this record is more mature and even a little more progressive. One of our favorite tracks is "Daydream", we feel it encompasses the general direction of the album."
San Diego's My Iron Lung got their start in early 2011 and after spending time playing local shows the band wrote and recorded Grief. After attracting the attention from Pure Noise the band released the EP in the fall of 2012. The band has since toured with bands like HRVRD, A Lot Like Birds, Being As An Ocean, Vales, Night Verses, Darasuum, Broadway Calls and Troubled Coast.
