Sherwood has been officially signed to Myspace Records.
Sherwood are currently in Mexico writing their new album. The band is soaking in the sun, beach, and tacos as they write songs for their new album that is said to be dancy and fun. Dan posted this update on his blog:
As for the album, things are coming along awesome so far. a song called “the best in me” is coming out awesome; i am super excited, as is everyone else. also, we did an electronic alternate version of a new song “alley cat”, a la erlend oye or the postal service, and it came out so good that we are spinning all kinds of ideas around it. who knows. but for sure, this is going to be a dancy, fun album, and i am excited about how things are turning out.Ãƒ”šÃ‚
Amber Pacific have announced that Over It will be replacing October Fall on their current tour. You can read what the band says below.
The band’s for the tour will now be:
This Day & Age
OVER IT* (replacing October Fall)
All Time Low
The reason behind replacing October Fall on the tour is that they aren’t going to be available anymore to go on our tour. We did not kick them off, and wish them all the best. I am sure their label or the band themselves will be making a press release about their other plans in a short time from now.
Either way, we are stoked to have Over It come out with us in their place and their presence will solidify this tour as the kind of Pop Punk Tour that we as a band are stoked to be a part and gracious to have been able to select and take out such awesome bands.
You should all come out to rock out with us because not only will it be a sick line-up, but there is a 99% chance that it will be our last tour until 2007.
OH, and we will have another BIG announcement about the tour in the beginning of August as well. See you all soon!
Sherwood have come quite a ways since their self released, self-tited EP which they put out in January of 2004. The guys came through on tour and I caught up with them in the summer of 04′ where they were eating peanut butter and crackers for supper and playing for crowds of 20-100 people night after night. I knew instantly that the guys were very hard working and deserved every little bit of exposure they could get. You can check out the interview I conducted with Dan from June 30th 2004 here. Since then Sherwood signed a one record deal with SideCho and Released Sing, But Keep Going about a year ago on May 31st 2005. The Summer EP is a continuation of Sherwood’s fun energetic music which is filled with catchy guitars, organ backgrounds, and sing along lyrics.
Starting out the EP is the catchiest song on the EP titled “The Only Song.” Back and forth guitar parts are filled in with an upbeat bass and drum part as well as being covered with that nice organ sound I’ve come to love from Sherwood. “This Airplane Is A Ribbon” starts out with Nate singing “This Airplane Is A Ribbon, with the bird at either end, and it’s feather light floating in the wind ” while we hear a light acoustic guitar part. I love when the song picks up with a nice drum and bass line, as well as the background vocals which add so much to the songs dynamics. “I’m Asking Her To Stay” reminds me of Sherwood’s early days when they sang about California, life, love, and girls. Wrapping up the EP is “The Simple Life” which is a slower acoustic song with great melody and lyrics.
Like I said before, Sherwood have come a long way in their time and things are only looking better from here. The bands sound has been perfected with their last few releases and I definitely love their sound. Pick up this EP while it’s still free. The band will have it on sale on their shows in the future and you can also pre-order it from Flipside Industires for a June 1st release.
