Eulogies Set Third Full-Length For January Release On Dangerbird

Eulogies will release their third full-length album, "Tear The Fences Down," on Dangerbird Records on January 18, 2011. The new record, penned by band guitarist/vocalist Peter Walker, is dedicated to Pablo Castelaz, the son of Dangerbird co-founder, Jeff Castelaz who passed away in 2009 from a rare form of cancer.

Walker says, "The fact that my band is called ‘Eulogies' has nothing to do with death, other than I think it would be a living hell if I couldn't speak the truth. All I've been through, all I've built, and all I've lost, it's all right here on this record."

Along with band mates, Chris Reynolds, Drew Phillips and Ashley Dzerigian, Walker has created a poignant, but far from dour listening experience, however inextricable it may be from the subject matter.

On "How To Say Goodbye," Walker sings, "Now that you are free from all your pain and suffering- you've gone so easily from nothing into everything," but the music takes on an urgently hopeful shape, with an arms-in-the-air chorus warm with love and bereft of anger. "Intimate Debris" is even more hopeful, actually kicking in with its Byrds-like chorus and childlike verses colored with ukulele and mid-tempo backbeat.

"Out Of Style, Out Of Touch" moves with even more positive energy proclaiming, "we'll find what's left in us to celebrate..." and title track, "Tear The Fences Down" appropriately says it all through a compelling pulse beat, posing the question, "... how to do we face ourselves when there's no way to tell which way we're looking?"

Tear The Fences Down is executive produced by Butch Walker (who wrote tunes for Avril Lavigne, Fall Out Boy, All American Rejects, Weezer and Dashboard Confessional) and sports album design from the celebrated artist Shepard Fairey and his Studio Number One Creative Firm. The record is the follow-up to 2009's much-loved, "Here Anonymous," that most notably contained the tune, "Two Can Play," featuring Nikki Monninger of the Silversun Pickups, 2008's "Tempted To Do Nothing EP," and the band's 2007 self-titled debut album.
