Destruction Creation Released Nov. 2
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
PRLog (Press Release) – Oct 30, 2010 – After successfully breaking into the CMJ top 200 with last year's Meadow at Dusk LP, Fairmont quickly returned to the studio this past September to follow with their sixth full-length record, DESTRUCTION CREATION which releases this November 2. While the quartet will obviously look to repeat and build on the success of their last record, they certainly did not repeat their usual methods in the studio during the making of the new record. Instead, the band decided to take a completely new approach during the process of making of Destruction Creation, recording the album in just 70 hours over the course of six days.
In a recent interview, front man Neil Sabatino summed up the DIY spirit of his band’s recording experience for Destruction Creation:
“We did it in a small cabin in Lynn, Pennsylvania, with no phone, no internet and no TV. The water smelled like sulfur, so we only showered once or twice because it made us smell worse. It was quite an experience.”
Of course the album's tracks were eventually brought in from the wilderness and placed in the hands of trusted professionals; engineered partially by Ryan Sellick from defunct Northshore Studio (Gaslight Anthem and Armor for Sleep), and mixed by Bryan Russell (Fairmont’s past two releases).
With the band’s lineup from their previous album still intact, Destruction Creation also carries on the existential themes of past album titles like Hell is Other People and Transcendence. The tracks contain:
1. Oh Your Bitter Heart
2. No Good Deed Goes Unpunished
3. In This House
4. You Haunt Me
7. You Think It's All About You
8. Lucky Boy, Lucky Girl
9. Friends Like You
10. As The Sun Sets On Lonely Hills
The month of November following the release of Destruction Creation will be busy for Fairmont while they support the record. The end of the month will be a can’t miss Mint 400 Records showcase event at Maxwell’s on November 27th, which will also be the record release show for the new Fairmont album. Though the group’s LP is primarily set for digital release, the physical album will be available and well worth purchasing that night, featuring intricately hand sewn cover art that was crafted by Neil's wife Jamie Sabatino.
As far as other news on the band’s horizon, the group plans on contributing to a new compilation that will be out later this year through Mint 400 to benefit the Special Olympics. Be sure to look for that and be sure to listen for Fairmont later this fall all over College Radio as they partner up with their friends at Pirate Radio Promotion again this year.
