Fueled By Ramen

$18.99 
SKU: B01N17E6E5

Deluxe edition includes remixed/remastered versions of the original release's 10 songs and four bonus tracks: a cover of The Cardigan's "My Favourite Game," acoustic versions of "Aquasun," "Blinded Bye," and the acoustic track "Cloud," which originally appeared on a limited run 7". 2016 release. Since abruptly announcing an indefinite hiatus only weeks after the release of 2012's breakthrough LP Colourmeinkindness, Basement's intensely devoted following has only grown. Promise Everything is the band's full-length return to writing and recording since the break. Challenged by the spacing out of members not only across the country - but across the globe - Promise Everything was written by piecing together songs without the luxury of a space or even a time zone to share. Perhaps this is why upon listening, Promise Everything feels like a conversation between different people, revealing different moods and feelings throughout. This conversation shifts and evolves, filtering subtle, tasteful alternative rock touchstones through the band's unmatched melodic lens. More clearly aggressive songs like "Brother's Keeper" and title track "Promise Everything" situate Basement at the forefront of the rock world, pairing that aggression with an inherent sense of melody. On the standout track "Aquasun," lyrical flow and melody overtake the listener while overt meaning gives way to musicality and it's nuance. Despite years spent apart, it would seem Basement's musical conversation has been one that has lingered even when after it was interrupted too soon by their premature and luckily temporary break, - and as their first true cohesive document, Promise Everything is only the beginning of what Basement has to say.
