Release Date: November 9th, 2009
Label: 14th Floor Records
Our first taste of the album came with the release of ‘Mountains’ in August ’08; originally planned as a non-album song, but in the end finding its way onto the contents of ‘Only Revolutions’, with powerful vocals and an uplifting chorus, it’s a taste of things to come on the new album.
Stand-out songs on the album include opening track (and recently released as a single) ‘The Captain’. Starting off with foot stamping and whooping before the spoken word lyrics from Simon Neil come in, it has an almost nautical sound to it, like an old chant you’d hear on the high seas in something like ‘Pirates of the Carribbean’… I guess that comes from the name being ‘The Captain’, something tied in with the promotional video for the song which has the band performing on a pirate ship.
