I haven't seen much discussion about this fabulous band here on KR
. I'd like to think this is because of all the music industry bull**** that has kept them wrapped in red tape for the last few years. Well, their third album is finally here. Mercy (Dancing for the Death of an Imaginary Enemy)
will be on the shelves April 15 (Tuesday), and it was produced by Rick Rubin... yay for big-name producers!
I'm hoping there are some Ours fans here on KR
, and if not, I hope to turn people on to them. If you like Jeff Buckley, U2 or Queen, then you'll probably love Ours. I'm sure most people would say it's Jimmy's voice that is so captivating. I've seen them 12 or 13 times, I can't remember, but it's as if he casts a spell on you and you can't look away. His voice will pierce your soul and the music will take you away. They'll be on tour with Filter this summer, so Filter fans will be in for a treat.
You can listen to several of their new tracks at myspace.com/oursmusic
and you can pre-order or buy the album at Amazon.com
. FYE is offering a free signed booklet with the CD while supplies last.
And speak up if you're a fan, please.
