Sycamour Announce Debut Full-Length Album Indulgence: A Saga Of LightsBands, Featured — By HopelessMallory on July 1, 2014
Ann Arbor, Michigan rock band SycAmour announced today the release of their debut full-length album, Indulgence: A Saga Of Lights, via Hopeless Records on September 2nd. The album was produced by Johnny Franck, mixed/mastered by Nick Sampson and includes guest vocals by Trenton Woodley (Hands Like Houses) and Phil Druyor (Attack Attack!, I Am Abomination).
SycAmour also revealed the first track off the album, “Calm Down Juliet (What A Drama Queen)” today. The lyric video is now streaming on the Hopeless Record YouTube channel here: http://smarturl.it/hearcalmdownjuliet
“We’ve spent more than 2 years getting this record together; closer to three if we’re talking about the entirety. Indulgence is our first genuine venture into the collective story universe we’ve been developing even prior to Obscure’s release in 2012. It’s a story about duality and how we, by human nature, contradict our beliefs, perspectives and world views; even though we like to think they’re perfect and infinite. More specifically though, it’s about Love, Revenge, Sex, Drugs, Unity, Sweat & Social Movement; whatever that means to you. Join The Heartwood,” said vocalist Jeremy Gilmore on the new album.
Indulgence: A Saga Of Lights is now available for pre-order via iTunes and MerchNow.
On September 5, the band will play a hometown album release show at the 89x Chill on the Hill pre-party at The Crofoot Ballroom in Pontiac, MI. SycAmour will be joined by special guests The Bad Chapter feat. Phil Druyor, Gone By Sunset, The Banshee Pilot and Narco Debut for this show. Advance tickets are only $10 and will include a copy of the new album, Indulgence: A Saga Of Lights, plus a mask for the masquerade. Tickets go on sale Wednesday, July 2nd at 10am EST here:
The band will play at 89X’s Chill on the Hill festival the following day, September 6th! The two day festival includes performances from label mates Taking Back Sunday and Silverstein as well as A Day To Remember, The Offspring, Bad Religion and many more. Tickets are available here: http://chillonthehillfestival.com/tickets
Composed of vocalists Jeremy Gilmore and Tony Sugent, guitarist Zack Ferrell, bassist Charlie McCormick, and drummer Victor Yousof, SycAmour met while residing in the same Ann Arbor, Michigan neighborhood. The band’s inspiration is drawn from the imagery-laden, vividly lyrical styles of theatrical-rock forerunners such as Chiodos, Panic! At the Disco and Underoath.
