Civil Twilight Return With Holy Weather
Today marks the day that rock trio Civil Twilight unveils their new single 'Fire Escape'. This is the start of a new year in which the follow-up to their 2009 debut self-titled album. Their second single 'Letters From The Sky' was the most successful one but hopefully this one will accomplish the same.
On March 27th 'holy wather' will be released via Wind Up Records. Naturally the band, consisting out of brothers Steven (singer/bass/piano) and Andrew McKellar (guitar) and Richard Wouters (drums), have created a so-called 'perfect blend of atmospheric sound and hazy storytelling'. But do not wait till the release date because pre-orders receive the single, as well as a pre-order only track and three, exclusive bonus tracks when the album drops!
Last couple of years the band have been touring heavily. Afterwards and during the tour Steven noticed he became inspired by the fact that road life can change the way you perceive the world.

Therefore, he started writing songs based on nostalgia, which would eventually lead to album’s 11 new tracks. Each track is carefully composed with Steven’s engaging vocals that cascade over his own classical piano chords and eerie bass riffs. Richard's powerful drum beats and Andrew’s moving guitar riffs enhance holy weather's overall sound that lies somewhere between a mood that’s as dark as the midnight sky, and is as uplifting as watching the sunrise. holy weather ultimately captivates the listener from the very beginning!
In 2011, the band contributed the title cover song for the record Come As You Are: A 20th Anniversary Tribute To Nirvana's Nevermind, which Alternative Press called, “The most interesting song on the album…which sounds more like Coldplay than Cobain, but at least it swells and crashes into its own original.”
