Viva Voce will release an advance single this week from their upcoming album Rose City, with the advance issuing of the track Octavia plus a few remixes. They're working with eMusic to release the single. It will be available starting on Tuesday, April 28th.
The music comes from their upcoming full-length release Rose City, due out on Barsuk Records on May 26th.
Viva Voce recorded the album at their new at-home studio. Taking the hands-on approach of making their own music and recordings, they've put the studio to good use creating the sounds for their next release, Rose City.
The band wrote and recorded the whole album in one month's time, choosing "not to deliberate over every little thing but living purely in the moment musically and lyrically, immersing themselves in sonic experimentation," according to their label, Barsuk Records.
Member Kevin Robinson has been staying busy producing and recording bands like Tu Fawning and Thao with The Get Down Stay Down, while Viva Voce have been touring steadily with country rock band Blue Giant. They've also added band members Corrina Repp and Evan Railton to the band, both part of the Portland music scene.
