JAN 26 – I the Mighty will release their debut album on Equal Vision Records, Karma Never Sleeps, on March 27th.
The San Francisco, CA-based band has also revealed the cover art, tracklisting, and a teaser video for the EP, which can be seen HERE.
Karma Never Sleeps envelops listeners into a dramatic, dreamlike state, with intricate tales of political corruption, desperation and despair, and even words of cautionary counseling for the young and reckless. The EP features six sweeping tracks filled with soaring vocals, catchy hooks, charging guitars and explosive instrumentations, lyrically infused with powerful, poignant storylines.
I the Mighty vocalist Brent Walsh speaks of the band’s politically-charged lead single “Cutting Room Floor” explaining, “I go through phases where I follow politics closely, only to find myself backing away from it completely because it brings little more than frustration and a greater lack of confidence in humanity. The song describes Karma catching up to somebody who has let the persuasive hand of greed be the guiding light by which they live their life.” He concludes, “We don’t want people to just listen to our music on a surface level. We want people to dive into the songs and dissect them and to really feel them.”
The single is currently available on iTunes, Amazon and other online retailers. Pre-orders for the full album, which was produced by Erik Ron [Panic! At The Disco, VersaEmerge, Foxy Shazam], will launch on February 3rd on equalvision.merchnow.com.
I the Mighty has just wrapped up a tour with A Lot Like Birds and Just Like Vinyl (ex-The Fall of Troy) and will next head out with The Mid-Summer Classic, Divided By Friday and Victorian Halls. In March, the band will once again hit the road, with A Lot Like Birds and From Indian Lakes, en route to Texas for SXSW.
