Earlier this year, Burnt Ones front man Mark Tester shared details with us about his bands upcoming LP, You’ll Never Walk Alone, describing the record as much more personal to him than Burnt Ones’ previous work. With “overarching themes of detachment, want and loneliness from personal and impersonal perspectives,” the band’s third full-length effort promises to be one that speaks to universal emotions and anxieties, all through a shiny lens of glam rock, psych-pop. When we spoke, Mark also admitted that he and his band mates used “virtually every instrument and sound at our immediate disposal to record it, without much consideration going in to how we would play any of the songs live,” so seeing Burnt Ones pull these song off live will make for a wild show.
You’ll Never Walk Alone is available for pre-order and is scheduled to be released on April 30th through Burger Records, but you can grab a copy at the band’s record release show this Friday, April 12th, at Brick & Mortar. In the mean time, here’s a taste of the album in the form of Burnt One’s latest single, “Web.”
