American Aquarium will release their new album Things Change on 1st June 2018 via New West Records.
The album chronicles the last two years as seen through the eyes of the band’s frontman BJ Barham. Things Change is described as ‘an introspective reflection on personal growth, adjustments and the current social climate in the United States.’
Since the release of the band’s 2015 album Wolves, things have changed significantly for the band. Barham released solo album Rockingham in 2016 and in 2017 the band dissolved leaving only its frontman.
Choosing to continue Barham put together a new line-up in autumn last year. Barham formed a partnership with New West Records for American Aquarium’s latest album.
Things Change features the new members of American Aquarium who are Shane Boeker on lead guitar, Joey Bybee, drums, Ben Hussey, bass, Adam Kurtz on pedal steel and electric guitar and BJ Barham on vocals and guitar.
The album was produced by John Fullbright and engineered by Wes Sharon (Turnpike Troubadours, Parker Millsap) in Tulsa, OK and mixed by Ryan Hewitt. Fullbright also added his touch on piano, clarinet, mellotron, guitar and vocals.
