Say This Sooner
The Almost (the brainchild of Underoath drummer/vocalist Aaron Gillespie) will release their debut album Southern Weather (Tooth & Nail/Virgin Records) on April 3rd.
After wrapping a successful January headlining trek, The Almost, Gillespie--who sings and performs virtually every note and instrument on his solo debut--teamed with acclaimed producer Aaron Sprinkle for Southern Weather , and while the two had never met, Aaron was a big fan of Sprinkle's work with Pedro The Lion. "Aaron is an incredibly talented producer," says Gillespie. "And it turns out we have a lot in common. He wears a lot of hats and plays every instrument. He's able to open up your eyes and make you think about things you can do on an album that maybe you didn't think about." While some artists might find themselves overwhelmed by the prospect of working as a solo artist, Aaron says he was motivated by the experience. "I'm used to working in a band environment," he admits. "So that was a shift. But when I hit my stride, I could just go for things. I didn't have to explain what I was looking for to someone else or over-think anything."
Gillespie plays from the heart on Southern Weather. Throughout the album Aaron incorporates pieces of his youth. "I grew up in the Deep South," he says. "Like anyone, I've had struggles along the way. But I am very much informed by Southern values and I think the songs speak to that."
The album kicks off with the attention-grabbing, percussion-driven anthem "Say This Sooner" which is set to impact radio February 14. "It's about dealing with misunderstood intentions," says Gillespie. "And the frustration of being judged on someone else's misconceived perceptions." Other album highlights include the alt-country inspired "Dirty And Left Out," which features a guest vocal collaboration with Sunny Day Real Estate singer Jeremy Enigk; the inventive Thursday-meets-Oasis vibe of "Everyone Here Smells Like A Rat;" and the breathtaking, undying roar of "I Mostly Copy Other People," which benefits from the bass and guest vocal work of The Starting Line's Kenny Vasoli.
The actor says he isn't "holding out for more money or doing anything like that".
