Souvenir's Young America Join The Crucial Blast RosterRichmond, Virginia instrumental trio Souvenir's Young America is teaming up with Crucial Blast to release their as-yet-untitled sophomore album, which is currently slated for a July 2007 release. Last year's surprising self-titled debut on Underadar was hailed by everyone from Aquarius Records to as one of 2006's finest debuts, and the stunning September Songs cassette released in December '06 to coincide with the band's East Coast tour.

Souvenir's Young America craft graceful melodic soundscapes and bursts of driving metalloid heaviness that bridge epic instrumental rock, classic prog, electronics, western twang, and molten riffage, and have managed to create a sound that is quite different from anything else in the instrumental rock movement that has bloomed throughout the decade. The band will begin working on their new album at Sound Of Music Studios in Richmond, VA in March, with John Morand (Labradford, Sparklehorse, 4 Walls Falling) at the helm. We're planning on having the album available on both CD and LP formats.
