LP - The Words We Say (June 2012)



Times After Dusk has technically existed since 2004 when founding members began playing and writing music together and the start of a unique sound began to build through the group’s early singles – some of which topped local-Columbus playlists and may still occasionally be heard in the band’s live set-lists in rewritten form. But Times After Dusk didn’t fully develop into the solid working band it is today until early-2010 when Brett's brother K.C. joined the band to round out the layers missing from the group’s sound. It was at this time that Times After Dusk dived deep into developing a new direction for its music, resulting in the writing and completion of the band’s first full-length album – The Words We Say (release date: June 2012).

A small flower shop in Lithopolis, Ohio served as the perfect sanctuary for writing the band’s debut album. Spending most of 2010 writing and perfecting 12 news songs (plus a special bonus track) that transcend the experiences and inspirations that have influenced their lives, the band headed into the studio at Fishtank Audio with Jack Campitelli in 2011. Following tracking of all 12 songs, the band mixed and self-produced the entire album in order to maintain its raw esthetic. Finally, in early-2012, the final mix was sent over to Chris Graham for final mastering resulting in a debut album we couldn’t be more proud of.

Born from a rustic sentimentalism, these songs reflect on the emotions that guide and define the process of coming of age. Simple melodies and delicate arrangements provide a medium for the lyrics to cut through; these are thinking songs, initiated by the passion to discern between the cynicism of life and the itch of healing scars that speak of the burns and cuts we earned when we were having the best times or worst times of our lives. As indicated by its title, the band’s first album truly reflects life through "The Words We Say".

Extra Factoids:
Ryan was a part of a Grammy nominated group during his time at Capital University – that's pretty impressive. And, Roy was one of the original members of ZAO. From MTV.com, "Their [ZAO’s] live performances are nearly a thing of legend in the underground, and the band's lack of apprehension about straying from proven formulas, genre restrictions, and labels of any kind is astounding."
