The Frames Ready New Album

Published: 2004-09-03
Irish band the Frames are preparing to release their newest studio album. The record, called 'Burn The Maps', will be put on shelves on September 17th in the UK. The album comes on the heels of the band's live album 'Set List' which was released in February on this side of the Atlantic.

The first single to be lifted off of 'Burn The Maps' is called 'Finally', and was released in August.

One of Ireland's most popular and revered bands, 'Burn The Maps' will be the group's fifth studio album. Counting all the live releases that the Frames have put into the world, the band are already on their eighth album in just twelve years. The reason that the Frames have such an incredible number of live records is because that is where the magic lies for them. Renowned for their explosive performances, the stage is what the Frames are all about.

Although North American audiences have yet to take to the Frames as the Irish and British have done, it can't be much longer. The band just completed a tour of the continent including a few stops in Canada. 'Set List' and the accompanying tour have started something for the Frames that just might make them as popular in North America as they are at home.

The Frames are an amazing combination: the bombastic dynamics of Glen Hansard's singing and guitar, his heartfelt lyrics, Colm's glorious violin, Joe Doyle's varied and reliable bottom line, and their new guitarist's textures and colours. Amazing band. Outstanding live act. Think of a huge living room with everyone singing along.
