We recently told you the exciting news about Framing Hanley and how they are set to release their new album, The Sum of Who We on April 29th on their new label Imagen Records.  This will be Framing Hanley‘s third CD and the first in 4 years. Frontman Nixon explains, “There was definitely a dark period during the 2 years we spent recording this.That’s not to say this album is some dark and brooding album. There are definitely some light-hearted tunes on here as well; some that are fun. This album is the past 2 years of our lives and is every part of our beings…that’s what the title means. This album really is the sum of who we are. The thing that I love most is, I think when the listener puts on those headphones, or puts the cd in the car, he or she is gonna listen and come to find out, hey, me and this guy have got some things in common!

This album is said to be the bands boldest artistic statement to date capturing the essence of innocence and hope, light and darkness, struggle and determination.  Pre-order packages are available now at   in three different  options consisting of the following items/price points: a CD/t-shirt/poster $19.99, 12” vinyl/t-shirt/poster $25.99 & CD/12” vinyl/t-shirt/poster $34.99. All pre-orders will receive an instant gratification download of the first single “Criminal” along with a free download of the album upon release. The first 100 pre-orders will also receive a signed poster.

The Sum Of Who We Are was funded entirely by the band’s loyal fanbase by donating money via a Kickstarter  campaign. “First and foremost, our incredible fans are the reason it’s even possible” states Nixon. “They funded the entire thing on Kickstarter. That is still unbelievable to us. This record from start to finish is everything that we have in us. The ‘sum of who we are’ if you will.”  This new album promises to deliver modern alternative rock with catchy choruses, pop hooks and emotionally driven lyrics that will have you singing along in no time.
The band currently has upcoming dates planned that also include dates with Three Days Grace in April, Devour The Day in May as well as headline shows. We are excited to check them out when they come to town. It has been four years since Framing Hanley has put out a new album and they are re-energized and fueled to rock!
