Message from the band:
There are now 3 new songs available on itunes that you can buy individually. if you buy the whole album, you get them free, and if you buy the album on bestbuy.com you’ll be shipped a hard copy of the songs as a seperate EP (for free), and you can also get that EP for free at our shows when you buy the album. if you go to Best Buy, check us out on the BLENDER RECOMMENDS rack. pretty cool, huh?
Those songs are: “Swept Away”, “I Wait Alone on the Shore”, and “Make my Bed.”
here’s the video for “Swept Away”shot at our A&R’s apartment: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9hUd7L_Gwdw
And … in case you didnt know already, we shot a video for our song “Allison” with Doctor Mindbender a couple of weeks ago. It’s gonna be done by June 15, and stars a couple of famous models called Boyd Holbrook and Tiah Eckhardt.
“After The Room Clears” was the fourth full length to ever be released on Stolen Transmission Records, a label that has built itself up seemingly overnight. Permanent Me (previously called Yes, Virginia) was one of the first to be signed on the label, and after recording and relentless touring, they’ve finally put out a full-length record.
The album is upbeat and nearly every song seems to be an energetic pop number about relationships, and to be more precise, relationships gone wrong; not that this is a bad thing. “After The Room Clears” possess a certain energy that makes up for the few parts that get somewhat repetitive. A supreme example of this energy is the first 10 seconds of the record. Permanent Me wastes no time with a intro song, but rather jumps into the record with Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”Until You LeaveÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬?, a catchy, upbeat song that promises to get stuck into your head. This approach sets up the mood for the rest of the album and the song is the perfect way to start off the record.
As the album continues, the energy captured in the first song is never lost, making the record that much more memorable. The band showcases it’s potential most notably in the songs “Dead To You”, where vocalist Brian Kapler sings with an extra bit of intensity that was previously unheard on the rest of the album.
The final song on the record “20 Years” demonstrated the same potential that “Dead To You.” Maybe it’s the “whoaÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬?s in the chorus, but every time I hear this song, I can’t help but think it’s one of those songs that you go to a concert and can’t wait to hear because you can’t wait to sing along. A lot of the record is like that, and although it’s not groundbreaking, it’s fun pop rock that people can have fun listening to.
