Framing Hanley, rock band from Nashville (USA) recently released their latest album ‘The Sum Of Who We Are’ in the UK. The band are also hitting up the UK for a 9 date tour in October & November.
Vocalist from the band, Nixon said ‘The reception for our band in the UK is second to none…and I think for rock n roll in general. Anytime we leave there to go back home, we are already talking about the next chance to go back. With last fall’s tour being cut short because of an illness in The Blackout, this trip back to the UK is long overdue. We’ve been in the studio for 2 and 1/2 years working on ‘The Sum of Who We Are’ and the reward for us is being able to play these songs live. It’s been too long, and if you come to any shows on this tour you can expect an energy in the room to be unlike any of a previous Framing Hanley show. We’re ready…are you?’
The recording of ‘The Sum Of Who We Are’ was funded entirely by the band’s fanbase via kickstarter. ‘Every band says they feel like they’re getting better with age’ states frontman Nixon. ‘So while I feel that is a trite statement, I can’t deny it. We’ve never written as much material for an album as we did for this one. We had to cut so many songs we felt were strong. We also recorded songs for the album we felt weren’t quite there yet, only to go back to the drawing board and get it right’.
