New Semi Precious Weapons album “Aviation” to be released on limited edition vinyl for record store day

April 17th, 2014 by Megan Washington

Semi Precious Weapons will release 500 limited edition vinyl copies of Aviation on Record Store Day (April 19th) followed by the special edition CD and digital release on April 22nd.
The band will play a special release party performance at Sayers in Los Angeles on April 22nd. This will be followed on the 23rd by a Penthouse performance for Alt 98.7 Los Angeles at Hollywood Towers.

The 12-track album is Semi Precious Weapons’ first in 4 years. Created in collaboration with Grammy-winning producer Tricky Stewart (Beyoncé, Rihanna, Frank Ocean) of RedZone Records, Aviation is a rule-defying album that blends an array of genres.

“Aviation High” is currently New and Active on the Alternative Radio Chart (53* to 48* this week!) with early support on major stations including Sirius Alt Nation, LA’s ALT 987, San Diego’s 91X, Washington DC’s DC101, Atlanta’s WRDA, Richmond’s WRXL, Tulsa’s KMYZ and over a dozen other markets. Semi Precious Weapons is partnering with these stations for exclusive performances in each market, leading to upward movement on Mediabase Alternative Radio Chart, Top 5 requests, and major week on week increases in digital sales.

After touring with Lady Gaga on her Monster Ball Tour, Semi Precious Weapons relocated from New York City to Los Angeles to collaborate with multi-platinum producer Tricky Stewart before signing to his new label, RedZone Records.

The band worked with Tricky writing and recording, before completing what they call “the album we had always hoped to make.” Aviation seamlessly blends the band’s sexy dance punk approach with Tricky’s powerful pop and urban influenced production.

Singer Justin Tranter says, “Tricky Stewart gave us the inspiration to use textures from all the different kinds of music we love… it was just about what felt right.”

“The sound of the band is one that appreciates the greatness of all genres of music. Their records are made organically and what’s heard is unobstructed to the fans,” says Stewart. “This is absolutely one of the most important projects of my career. It gives you a glimpse not only into my past – but my present, and future. I feel like we’ve created something special that will stand out in the world!”

Semi Precious Weapons formed in 2006 and released their debut album We Love You in 2008. Garnering a cult-like fan base and stunning critical acclaim, SPW dazzled with their sophomore album You Love You in 2010.

The band has performed for millions of people across world, supporting Lady Gaga on “The Monster Ball” tour and Ke$ha on her “Warrior Tour”. They also headlined their own “Dirty Showbiz Tour” and performed festivals such as Lollapalooza, the Isle of Wight, and more.
