St Paul & The Broken Bones play Concorde 2, Brighton, on Sunday, June 26, ahead of the release of their new album in September, Sea of Noise on Columbia Records.

Spokesman Warren Higgins said: “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 fiery ‘Burning Rome’ conveys the realisation 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.

“Sea of Noise is the follow-up to their 2013 debut LP Half the City, which received critical acclaim ranging from USA Today to Esquire to Paste, and went on to sell more than 115,000 copies.”

St Paul & The Broken Bones is: Paul Janeway (vocals), Jesse Phillips (bass) Browan Lollar (guitar), Al Gamble (keys) Andrew Lee (drums) Allen Bransetter (trumpet), Chad Fisher (trombone) and Jason Mingledorff (sax).
