You run a certain level of risk when naming the lead single to your fourth album, "This Time It's Different". Whether a metaphor in reference to the album, the direction the band is going, or no correlation at all, fans of Alternative Rock band Evans|Blue are expecting just that. Something different. Something special. And indeed things are different this time around in the wake of the release of the band's latest effort, Graveyard Of Empires and subsequent tour which comes to Pop's Nightclub & Concert Venue on Friday, August 17th.
Evans Blue’s fourth album with long-time producer Trevor Kustiak, Graveyard Of Empires, was released April 17th on Sounds+Sights. With a full self-titled third album now under lead singer Dan Chandler's belt, the band was destined for further success on their fourth LP. However, the group had to overcome new challenges on this record when they parted ways early on in the process with drummer Howard "H-Bomb" Davis in November 2011. Yet, with big challenges comes bigger reward, and the band has united together stronger than ever to produce their best album to date in my opinion with their latest effort, Graveyard Of Empires.
I recently had a chance to catch up with St. Louis hometown front man Dan Chandler to chat about their current Graveyard Of Empires tour, the album, the band, and their upcoming headline show at Pop's. Head on over to insideSTL.com to check out the full article and show preview HERE!
