Henry the Archer announces two-day August vinyl release party with Hand Drawn Records
Alt-rock-indie-pop group Henry The Archer announces vinyl release parties in celebration of “Zero Is A Number” in vinyl form. North Texas artist-centric record label Hand Drawn Records was proud to sign Henry the Archer this past spring and collaborate in the finished vinyl product at their state-of-the-art vinyl pressing plant. In his fourth album, “Zero is a Number,” lead singer Richard Hennessy tackles topics of love, loss, and life, melding the edgy side of post-punk with a refreshing groove-pop melody. The festivities kick off at Chief Records (140 E Exchange Ave., #135) in Fort Worth on Saturday, Aug. 26 from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. The hype continues with a release party at Spinster Records (829 W Davis St.) in Oak Cliff on Sunday, Aug. 27 from 2 to 4 p.m. The two-day event is sponsored by Division Brewing Co. who will provide special local brews for both vinyl release parties.
“This new album consumed me, to the extent that a little bit of reality crept into the lyrics. But I’d have to say that musically I really enjoyed putting this record together, and working with great people,” Hennessy said.
After spending some time in South Carolina and back home in New Jersey, singer-songwriter Hennessy experienced a turning point in 2010 while battling depression. He wrote a book based on himself in a fictional Medieval Times setting that acted as a therapeutic biography – and “Henry the Archer” was born. He felt compelled to get back out there and follow his true music calling. Relocating to Fort Worth, he began performing as a solo act, starting with the Grotto.
