Bishop Allen Ready New Album, Tour Dates
    • FRIDAY, JUNE 22, 2007

    • Posted by:

    After recording and releasing an EP a month for the entire year of 2006, you’d think Bishop Allen would deserve a year off. Instead, the band is preparing to release their long-awaited follow-up to Charm School. The Broken String is the band’s first with Dead Oceans, and features nine reworked tracks from the band’s EP project, along with 2 unreleased songs. Compiling most of the songs from the EPs sounds like a cop out, but its not. Dead Oceans Explains...

    “If Bishop Allen made a huge musical jump from the 2003 debut to the 2006 EPs, the band made a quantum leap on The Broken String. Of its 12 songs, 9 are reworked tracks from the EPs and two are previously unreleased. These are not just re-recordings: Bishop Allen has stepped out of the home studio and created definitive versions of songs that were originally conceived within the constraints of a monthly deadline. Benefiting from the earlier recordings and several tours, the songs' arrangements have grown, the production is lush, the lyrics are front and center, and the band's evolution has reached a new level. If Ed Sullivan were alive today, Bishop Allen's story-songs would be ripe for prime time. The Broken String is the follow-up for which Bishop Allen fans have long clamored.”
