One of the year’s most buzzed-about new acts, Never Shout Never, fronted by 19-year-old singer-songwriter Christofer Drew, will release a new album, titled Harmony, on Love Records/Sire Records on August 24.
The album was produced by veteran producer Butch Vig, who is best-known for his work with Green Day, Nirvana, and Smashing Pumpkins.
Never Shout Never will also release a deluxe digital collection of songs, titled Melody, exlusively through iTunes on July 27th.
Melody includes three brand-new tracks, “CHEATERCHEATERBESTFRIENDEATER,” “Coffee & Cigarettes,” and “Lousy Truth,” plus an audio interview with Drew and Vig, ten photos, lyrics, and a video for “Coffee & Cigarettes.”
Having finished up a sold-out headlining stint on the 2010 AP Tour, Never Shout Never hits the road this Friday, June 25th, for this year’s Vans Warped Tour, where the band will perform on the main-stage.
Beginning on the first day of the tour, fans will be able to purchase a limited-edition Never Shout Never lithograph that entitles the purchaser to download a digital version of Harmony on the street date of August 24.
Harmony is the follow-up to Never Shout Never’s critically heralded debut What Is Love?, which bowed at No. 24 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart, No. 2 on both the Alternative and Rock charts, No. 6 on the Digital Album chart, and No. 11 on the Internet album chart upon its release in January.
Rolling Stone praised Drew’s “airy, heartbroken acoustic tunes” and called him “a hero for a new generation.”
