And announce ‘Feel It All Around’ LP out 11/11 produced by Will Yip, releasing on Other People Records.

Soul Blind pushes the boundaries of alternative rock with a rich collage of sounds and emotionally charged lyrics. The band announced their first full-length album, ‘Feel it All Around’, set for release November 11th on Other People Records. Written during the pandemic, follows the band’s 2021 EP, ‘Third Chain’, and deals with emotional strain and taking on the world around you. When it came time to record the LP, the band knew they wanted to work with someone who could challenge them to be their best selves. Entering the studio in early 2022 with Grammy-nominated producer Will Yip (Title Fight, Turnover) at Studio 4 Recordings provided just that. The eleven songs on the album are filled with layers of melodies, ranging from grunge heavy tracks to fuzzy, shoegaze moments. Having already provided fans with stand-alone single ‘Stuck In A Loop’, the band shares ‘System (Failing)’. The song has a wistful cool to it, as the rhythms move from more melodic to moments of crunchy guitars encircled by pining vocals. On the lyrical content behind the track, vocalist Cen expanded:

“This one tackles someone sucking the life out of you, but instead you reflect that feeling and actively bring about the change you wish to see within them by removing yourself. It’s about the personal progression out of situations that don’t do anything for you anymore.”

The tracks thoroughly translate into a live setting, with Soul Blind having already given fans a little taste on recent tours with Drug Church and Angel Du$t. This fall, the band will head to Europe and the UK for the first time, supporting Stick To Your Guns, Knocked Loose, LANDMVRKS, and Scowl, which you can view dates for below.
