Saves The Day mastermind Chris Conley has posted an udpate on the status of their recently announced new full-length. Apparently unwilling to allow another three years to pass between records, the band has announced that the followup to 2006's Sound the Alarm will be released this fall and be titled Under The Boards.
Chris explained: "Making an album; almost done. We start mixing today. [...] We've been working so hard and having a lot of fun. It's gone by really fast. Now that we're almost finished, it's kinda sad. I don't want to stop. I don't want to have to say goodbye to Marc, Eric, David, Durijah, Manny, and "piano fightin'" Aaron. My heart hangs a bit.
This album is my favorite Saves the Day album (I feel this way each time we make an album). I can't wait to share it with everyone who cares to listen. We have put so much into this. Thirteen songs. Lots a sweat. Handful of tears. Good stuff. I like making music with all these guys."
The band is co-producing the 13 songs with Marc Hudson and Eric Stenman at their studio in northern California. Under The Boards continues a story about self-discovery that began with last year's Sound The Alarm and will conclude with a third album, Daybreak, to be released next year. Says frontman Chris Conley: "Sound The Alarm is an expression of discontent. Under The Boards is reflection and remorse. Daybreak is acceptance."
