Balance And Composure
Balance And Composure
Light We Made, which was produced by Will Yip (Nothing, Pity Sex), marks a milestone for the band, as this time around they’ve toned down their hardcore and punk-rock roots, to present a body of work that is dominated by soothing, harmonic tracks. The LP’s coherent mood of transcendent moments are driven by the band experimenting with new sonic elements - weaving in dreamy synth chords, melodic guitar riffs, and atmospheric bass grooves and drum beats to hit home the delivery of the songs’ emotional lyrics.

“This album is the culmination of the last 3 years, and how musically the band wanted to be more creative than ever before. We took time off to experience life, pushing ourselves to try things that we previously hadn’t, which in return inspired us to record something that would stand out. This LP is a sonic progression for us, and we’re excited to share it with everyone.”

In support of the new LP, Balance and Composure will bring their live set on the road this Fall for a North American headline tour, plus will make an appearance at this year’s Riot Fest in Chicago, and will open for Hum on September 24th in Pomona, CA.
The Jealous Sound
The Jealous Sound
Summer 2000 saw the release of The Jealous Sound 5-song CDep on indie start-up, Better Looking Records. The band's fanbase grew rapidly as The Jealous Sound toured the country and shared the stage with At The Drive-In, The Get Up Kids, No Knife, Death Cab For Cutie and The Promise Ring. Magazines worldwide caught the excitement of The Jealous Sound's debut with glowing remarks in Maxim, CMJ, A.P., Kerrang and more. SPIN heralded The Jealous Sound as "the rock you must have".

With the success of Better Looking Records' CDep release, The Jealous Sound signed a record deal with Mojo Records in 2001. Within weeks of signing, Mojo lost their distribution and announced sweeping layoffs. The Jealous Sound found themselves in limbo. Months later, Mojo was bought out by Jive Records (home to such artists as Backstreet Boys, Jars of Clay and R.Kelly).

Obviously mismatched on Jive, The Jealous Sound managed to escape and wasted no time in signing back with former label, Better Looking Records. The Los Angeles record label is home to releases by No Knife, The And/Ors, Australia's Ides of Space and most recently, a sold-out Jimmy Eat World limited edition holiday single.

Better Looking Records is looking to release the much-anticipated 12-song full length "Kill Them With Kindness" by The Jealous Sound on June 3rd, 2003. The band just finished recording with acclaimed producer Tim O'Heir (All American Rejects, Superdrag, Sebadoh / Folk Implosion, Juliana Hatfield, Dinosaur Jr.).

Singer/guitarist, Blair Shehan says of the new record, "This is going to be a dark and moody record. The songs are still honest and revealing. With Tim producing, we're getting bigger more expansive sounds...the music will have much more of a sonic landscape."
