The Band: Brooklyn indie rock outfit Animal Years
The Album: Sun Will Rise (Deluxe Edition), with four new bonus tracks, out May 6. Buy it on Amazon or iTunes.
Fun Fact: “For the music video for our song ‘Forget What They’re Telling You,’ we all dressed up in funky outfits and made a retro 70’s themed dance video,” says band frontman Mike McFadden. “We asked our friend Bailey Noble of True Blood to star in it. Look for it this summer.”
Liner Notes: “This record was recorded over a three-year span, mostly in Baltimore. It encompasses three years of emotions, ups and downs, and heartbreak. After I thought it and I were ready, I quit my job, packed up my stuff, and moved to Brooklyn. We finished the recording in Brooklyn, put together the band, and here we are.”
