This Providence Release New Single – “Trouble”; Band To Release “Brier” EP May 1

April 10th, 2012 by Megan Washington

Seattle, WA’s This Providence has announced a new single (“Trouble”) along with a new EP titled Brier on May 1. Purevolume.com is now streaming the single at:
www.purevolume.com/news/This-Providence-Premieres-New-Song-Trouble.

The Brier EP marks This Providence’s first effort since 2009’s Who Are You Now, and since parting ways with their former label, Fueled By Ramen (fun., Gym Glass Heroes, Cobra Starship.)

Brier was produced by Matt Grabe (The Maine, A Rocket To The Moon, The Summer Set) and will be released via the band’s new imprint Magic Mike Records.

This Providence will launch pre-orders for the Brier EP at http://www.shopbenchmark.com/thisprovidence, starting tomorrow.

Originally formed in the suburbs of Seattle in 2003 by Australian-born vocalist Daniel Young and guitarist Gavin Phillips, the band’s current lineup also features bassist David Blaise and drummer Andy Horst.

With the self-release of the Brier EP next month, and while in the midst of a cross country tour with Go Radio, This Providence is looking ahead at a new chapter for the band, and they invite their fans to join them. As Young explained in a statement to www.Altpress.com last month, “I can not wait to release these gems. If you live in the States, chances are we’ll be playing somewhere close to you. If not, change your definition of close. I’ll be spending the next two months with four other overly sensitive musicians, in an unpretentious, American-made, 15-passenger van, driving thousands of miles all over this liberated piece of dirt! Why don’t you come out and return the favor? Show us a little enthusiasm! We’re looking to make our mark in music, things feel different. It’s exciting. Don’t wish us luck, be a part of this.”
