________________________

Described as “Hook-Centric Modern Rock,” New Haven based Echoing August fuses together alternative music with acoustic subtleties.

EAs distinctive blend delivers songs full of hooks and rock sensitivities that audiences throughout the northeast cant seem to get enough of.

From high-energy live shows to intimate acoustic venues, the band has proven their natural talents as powerful songwriters and entertainers. Echoing August performs over 75 live shows every year at festivals, colleges, and clubs. Recently the band has gained notoriety tour supporting acts like Breaking Benjamin, Yellowcard, Better Than Ezra, Wheatus, Nine Days, The Pat McGee Band, Rusted Root, Robbie Krieger (The Doors), and Evans Blue.

The band excels at sounding un-self-conscious, comfortable enough in their musical abilities to let the hooks come naturally and the guitars, bass, and drums wrap around each other organically rather than mathematically said PLAY Magazine.

It is this sound that has attracted the support of EAs new record label RoHo Records (NYC). In a recent press release, label president Bill Carey had this to say of the band "Echoing August's unique sound, energy, and enthusiasm are contagious.

Backed by RoHo, Echoing August is set to release their sophomore effort, Who We Are. Dan McLoughlin whose previous credits include Weezer, Fastball, Dinosaur Jr, Buffalo Tom, and Juliana Hatfield. produced the album.

The Twelve track disk showcases versatility with stand out tracks like Stand Down and Who We Are, and still leaves a sweet aftertaste with songs like This, Kind of, Goodbye and Radio.

Who We Are was released August 29th, 2006 through RoHo Records.

EAs debut album, Morning, Sometimes, Maybe is available in stores nationwide.

Lyrics

Stand Down

Written By: Echoing August

Stand Down

I don't know if I can keep it together

I don't know if I am ever the same

Yeah, and you're watching your mouth

For the words that you say

I don't know if I should keep it together

Day in day out your whole worlds a drain

Yeah, and you're watching your mouth

For the words that you say

Stand down

Rewind

Just keep it together

Let yourself feel how you want to

When you want to now

I don't know if I can keep it together

I don't care if I know the moves that you make

Yeah, and we're watching our mouths

For the words that we say

Stand down

Rewind

Just keep it together

Let yourself feel how you want to

When you want to now

I don't know.

Still I don't know.

Who We Are

Written By: Echoing August

Who We Are

And when you're last in life

And your friends seem so behind

Sometimes we'll fall apart

Sometimes you'll pick me up

And when you're last in love

And your life seems so far gone

Sometimes we'll fade away

Sometime I'll wanna say

It's who we are

For what its worth

Cause you're more than I can give

And you're more than I will give

And we make love by day and by night we're enemies

Sometimes we'll fall apart

Sometimes I'll pick me up

And when you're last in life

You're last in love, your way down

Sometimes we wanna go

Sometimes I think it shows

Who we are

For what its worth

Cause you're more than I can give

And you're more than I will give

And we make love by day and by night we're enemies

This time I'll fall apart.

I'm only happy in this pain. I'm only happy when…

This, Kind of, Goodbye

Written By: Echoing August

This, Kind of, Goodbye

All these words but nothing left for me to say

I'm so tired of all these games we always play

These hands, my heart

While you're tearing me apart

All these words but nothing left for me to say

In your mind

I left you waiting

Leave it all behind

Consider it done

Consider it over

Consider these thoughts your peace of mind

Left with alcohol, a blurry mind,

Mascara down your eyes.

Forgot in time

Scars will heal and fade away

This, kind of, goodbye

I'll stay.

All these words and nothing left for me to say

Side by side, forever came and gone away

Cold hands, warm heart

Your world tearing me apart

All these words and nothing left for me to say

In your mind

I left you waiting

Leave it all behind

Consider it done

Consider it over

Consider these thoughts your peace of mind

Left with alcohol, a blurry mind,

Mascara down your eyes.

Forgot in time

Scars will heal and fade away

This, kind of, goodbye

I'll stay.
