      Loved it! I hope there'll be more of these in future. (And possibly one with the full five-piece? Just sayin'! ;))

After the darkness comes the light. On their sophomore disc, The Days of Blinding Fear (2010), Tin Star Orphans offered a luminous portrait of hope, a brightly burning candle that beautifully captured humanity’s refusal to die out in the cold hands of destruction and despair.

On their third offering, a self-titled album, TSO show us that humanity finally found salvation and redemption in love. The songs drive the heart mad, consuming us, reminding us why we soldier on, and urging us to keep fighting, so that we can find peace and dissolve into one another. TSO undulates like swelling waves crashing upon rocks along the shore, rising and falling in poetic perpetual motion, and echoing the rhythms of our hearts. The world is born anew, as is the band.

Recorded at lead guitarist Dean Marino’s Echo Valley Studios in Toronto, this album highlights the strength of the band’s core. Gone are the strings, brass, and acoustic folk tendencies of the past, as the band has come into their own, embracing a richer electric rock sound, full of lush melodies that allow each instrument ample room to breathe.

Gone, also, is the notion of a frontman. Although lead singer and guitarist Zachary Bennett wrote the demos that would come to make up TSO, the band worked as a true collective to strip the songs down and rebuild each track, amplifying their sound with nuanced force. The result is a cohesive album filled with Marino’s cascading walls of guitar that envelop the listener, Dave Fenton’s gentle bass lines that feel like soft grass beneath your feet, Steve Savage’s surging and punctuated keys, Johnny Rowe’s thundering drums that pound with the single-mindedness of a wild beast, and Bennett’s chilling vocals that pierce to the bone. This is a renewed and reinvigorated Tin Star Orphans.

With a new beginning comes a new outlook. The band has parted ways with their record label in order to breathe more intimacy and passion into their work as they live and die for their music, and for you, their fans.
