The Fold‘s new album Secrets Keep You Sick has been nominated for the “Best Recording Package” Grammy!Ã‚ Congratulations to Invisible Creature Art Director Don Clark!
“Let’s get to the point, let’s get to this condition…” is the chant that sharply echoes over power chords as the record begins and from this point on there is no looking back. Secrets Keep You Sick essentially serves as a sonic journal for frontman, Daniel Castady to chronicle the last few years of his life. The melodies and power behind each song simply grab a hold of you, and can only be described as compelling. The record as a whole is very emotionally charged, however not in a miserable-heartrending way.
The first half of the album is upbeat and more immediate, where the second half seems to gradually drag and become less memorable. Nevertheless, Secrets encompasses a certain brand of stirring alt-rock; that deserves to be pushed to the forefront. The Fold is vastly underrated, and it’s a shame that they remain relatively unknown. Thus, it’s no secret that this band deserves some much needed recognition; everyone should give this band and album a chance.
Recommend if you like: Heartfelt and uplifting rock music.

Holiday Parade posted a clip of a brand new song titled “Make It Count” on their MySpace page. The track was produced by Zack & Kenneth (Cartel, The Fold, Mayday Parade). The band is wrapping up their tour with Asteria and The Morning Light, and then hitting the road with Cartel for about two weeks. Check out a brief statement from the band below.
we just posted a clip of a new song titled ‘Make It Count’ on our Myspace.com profile and we would love to hear some first impression feedback. Whether it be amazing, good, bad, brutal, whatever…we’d love to hear it, so please let us know your thoughts, they mean A LOT to us, probably a lot more than you’d think. We will be announcing some pretty big news soon… stay tunedddddd.
Has 2007 proven to be better then last year? That is the question and we are looking for an answer, but a full year in review will have to wait another 6 months. The second half of the year looks promising with releasing from Paramore, The Rocket Summer, Motion City Soundtrack, Jimmy Eat World and more coming in the next few months. But what has the first half of the year done for our endless music craving? Releases from Anberlin, Relient K, Sherwood, Fall Out Boy and more hit shelves with lots of fanfare, but did they live up to the hype? This year is also filled with lots of sophomore albums from bands like Sullivan, The Fold, Paramore, My American Heart, Circa Survive and many more. Did these releases fall into the sophomore slump or are they destine for greatness.
Each year there is always one stand out band that comes out of nowhere to please our ears. So far this year The Graduate has done that for me. Their Cartel style rock rings out on their debut album, Anhedonia. With 6 months left in the year they could be beat, although the challenger would have to put up a pretty good fight.
This was just a brief review that covers just a few of the releases that have come out this year. This year is shaping up to be a pretty good year for new music. Now it’s your turn to let us know which releases you have dug so far this year and which releases didn’t meet your expectations. Also let us know which releases you think will dominate the second half of 2007.
