For those of you new to the Kiven camp, this alternative/progressive rock quartet are eagerly awaiting the February 25th, 2014 release of their debut self-titled record. Produced by Tony Hajjar from At The Drive-In, this album is tinged with prog and indie rock influences and is in a word, killer. The group recently released the album’s first single, a track called “In The Fire”. Check out the stream and free download just above and don’t forget to share with your friends and sound off in the comments below.
Kiven manages to make history with one stand out track, “I Can Take It”. For the first time, the drummer/man behind At The Drive-In’s arrangements, Tony Hajjar, stepped behind the board to produce an outside band. With the legendary drummer’s help, the group taps into palpable and potent energy. The energy transfers across the entire track listing though, especially on the undeniable first single “In The Fire”, premiering online very soon.
About the album, vocalist, guitarist, and keyboardist Tyler Demorest exclaims: “We spent a lot of time writing songs that were our sound and, at the same time, grew what Kiven is. Tony had a big impact on the music. It was a trip to work with someone that we looked up to growing up. He really brought the heavy and energy, adding a big rock vibe. He pulled that out of us.”
