The Skinny: On September 30th multi-platinum alternative rock band LIVE unveiled their vigorous new song “We Open The Door” from the upcoming album The Turn (out October 28 via Think Loud Music). The band’s Chad Taylor introduced the “We Open The Door” clip on the band’s website (watch below).

New vocalist Chris Shinn describes his passion for LIVE and the band’s fans: “I have nothing but respect for the fans and if I could tell them anything, it’s to trust me that I’m doing everything in my power to harness what made that bomb go off initially. To pack that thing back in there and do it again!”

The Turn 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 (guitar, backing vocals), Patrick Dahlheimer (bass percussion), Chad Gracey (drums, percussion), who are joined by Chris Shinn (lead vocals, guitar)–have re-invigorated its sound with effusive energy and massive hooks.
