About Leaving – An Echo, new album

About Leaving’s new album An Echo will be out on Engineer and Pick Your Twelve Records in April, and we’ll have taster tracks and video son here very soon for you, so for now we thought we’d tell you a little about the band and their new record;

Formed in Barcelona in the summer of 2015, About leaving is the new project from members and former members of the bands Ears, Jilguero, Furguson and Ohios.
After a few local shows, in which they presented their self-titled EP, the band is ready to release their first LP through Engineer Records and Pick Your Twelve.
As with many debuts, the album features a wide variety of genres with which the band feels comfortable and brings their own style.

The album title could very well refer to the many influences that resonate, as nice familiar echoes, through its 11 songs. Thus, “An echo” is a purposely contrasted album, which may be the reason the band chose the versatile musician Victor Teller (Zimt, Oso, Her Only Presence) as producer. The 4:32 minutes of the song ‘Of Those Things (that I say & I shouldn’t say)’ are the perfect summary of multifaceted personality of the young musicians. Three moods merge into a unique song. Quickly escalating from utter calm into a perfect storm, only to go back to an acoustic, deeply heart-felt, ending.

The album also has semi-instrumental pieces like ‘Withered flowers’, small jewels of autumnal power pop as ‘Unfolded’ and dark, pungent, guitar-filled tunes like ‘Weary Monuments’. However, they all have something in common: a very particular and special voice and a very confessional lyrical style that will trap and excite you.

For fans of American Football, Title Fight, Mineral, Cloud Nothings, and Pinkerton era Weezer.

Pre-orders available now, just drop us a line, and review copies going out soon.

Band members:
Jordi Erra – Drums
Martí Ferrer – Guitar
Gabri Molist – Guitar
Joan Pérez – Bass guitar
Jaime Pizarro – Guitar and vocals

All good things must come to an end and Miss Vincent are now back from their Bruises Tour.
They say they had a great time and give a massive thank you to their tour buddies FVK and VUKOVI for doing what they do, saying that it’s been a pleasure sharing the stage with such an amazing group of people. And of course thank you to everyone who came to a show, bought merch and hung out, they’ll see you again soon!



About Leaving join the label for the releases of their new album ‘An Echo’

The brilliant Spanish emo band ‘About Leaving’ are signing with Engineer Records (UK and US) and Pick Your Twelve Records (Spain) for the release of their new album ‘An Echo’.

The album will be out in April and Cds will ship to all of our distributers and reviewers, but before then we will have a video taster for you and an advance of three of the album tracks.
Very much in the vein of Her Only Presence and Mineral, and the quieter moments of Texas is the Reason and Promise Ring.
