Eisley - Equal Visionary

EISLEY EMERGES FROM "THE VALLEY" MARCH 1  FIRST ALBUM IN FOUR YEARS EXPLORES TURBULENT TIMES FOR THE DUPREES  FREE MP3 OF "AMBULANCE" AVAILABLE NOW  Eisley will release their first album in four years, "The Valley," on March 1  via Equal Vision Records. The 11-track set was recorded at Rosewood Studios in  their hometown of Tyler, Texas, with producer/engineers Gary Leach and Austin  Deptula (LeAnn Rimes), and mixed by Andy Freeman at Bay Area Tone in San  Francisco. See below for a track listing.  A free stream and MP3 of "Ambulance" from "The Valley" is available now through  the widget at">>. (See the  site for code to embed the widget elsewhere.)  The album's title refers to the emotional turmoil that the DuPree sisters, who  front Eisley, experienced as they crafted their third album: Sherri enduring a  failed marriage; Chauntelle, a broken engagement; and Stacy, a painful breakup.  The only relationship that ended on their terms was the split with Warner Bros.  Records, the label that released their first two albums and several EPs.  Promising to bring listeners through the band's darkest and most trying times,  "The Valley" reveals their strength, patience and perseverance. On tracks like  "Smarter" and "Sad," there's a musical aggression and emotional urgency that  transports you to the moment they were written, laying bare the open wound of  the broken heart. And the chilling album closer, "Ambulance," is an icy snapshot  of the very moment of betrayal and abandonment. Elsewhere, there's a stately  solace in the hopeful "Kind" and whimsical "Mr. Moon," and buoyant string  arrangements decorate opener "The Valley" and "Watch It Die."  As previously announced, Eisley will precede the release of "The Valley" with a  U.S. tour in February, supporting Rooney on all dates. The 21-date run begins  February 2 in Albuquerque and includes stops in Kansas City, the Twin Cities,  Chicago, Cleveland, Boston, Washington DC, Nashville, Denver and other markets.
