Published May 24, 2012When Bend Sinister announced their On My Mind EP earlier this year, they hinted that a full-length would soon be on the way. Sure enough, the Vancouver prog-pop unit just confirmed that their latest long-player is called Small Fame and that it will be out on July 10 through File Under: Music.
Like the On My Mind EP, Small Fame was recorded by producer Shawn Cole (You Say Party, Yukon Blonde) at Fader Master and Mushroom studios in Vancouver.
Two of the album's 12 songs come from the prior EP ("Give It a Rest" and "Got You on My Mind"), while the other ten tracks are new. According to a press release, these tunes give Bend Sinister a chance to "carry out their traditional brand of classic rock influenced song writing while maintaining a uniquely modern twist throughout the entire album."
Check out the opening track "She Don't Give Up" at the bottom of the page.
