Just Surrender announce first UK album release
After selling 40,000 records on two prior releases and touring non-stop over the past four years, New York’s Just Surrender return with their first release on UK label LAB Records (for UK and EU release), entitled Phoenix. Singer and guitarist Dan Simons comments, “A lot of bands don’t spend the time establishing a real fan base… We’re glad that we’ve put our time in, and look forward to the new record more than any other past release!” Produced by Lou Giordano (Plain White T’s, Taking Back Sunday, etc.) with additional production by Ace Enders (formerly of The Early November), Phoenix finds the band creating a darker, heavier sound than on previous releases, although their hooky chorus’ and stick-in-your-head melodies are still in full effect. The album features 11 new songs as well as an acoustic bonus track.
Mark Orr, CEO of LAB Records said; "It's great to have the Just Surrender guys on board - Phoenix is undoubtedly their best album yet and I can't wait for fans to see their incredible live show in September. It's only a couple of years since I was watching them tour with You Me At Six as a fan, so it's exciting to have them on board!"
The band also find themselves in the enviable position of supporting band-of-the-moment Framing Hanley on their forthcoming UK tour, the dates of which are:
September 15 – CARDIFF, Clwb Ifor Bach
September 16 – BIRMINGHAM, Academy 2
September 18 – LEEDS, Cockpit
September 20 – GLASGOW, The Garage
September 21 – MANCHESTER, Academy 3
September 23 – LONDON, Underworld
