The Skinny: In advance of the release of their new album The Turn, +LIVE+ have debuted their first single “The Way Around Is Through.” This marks the band’s ninth studio album and the group enlisted the help of their early producer Jerry Harrison to co-produce the album. In the studio, the quartet, original members Chad Taylor (guitars), Patrick Dahlheimer (bass and percussion), Chad Gracey (drums and percussion), who are joined by Chris Shinn (lead vocals & guitar), have re-invigorated its sound with effusive energy and massive hooks.
In 2012, with original lead singer Ed Kowalczyk’s permanent departure, Taylor, Gracey and Dahlheimer approached long time friend Chris Shinn (Unified Theory) about potentially joining the group. After one practice session, the musicians had tapped into the same magic that characterized the band’s early days. The creative process had been galvanized and rebooted and +LIVE+ re-entered the studio with Shinn behind the mic. The result is The Turn, a worthy addition to the lengthy and critically and commercially acclaimed +LIVE+ discography.
