Watch for a second single to debut later this spring/early summer.
Lead singer Keegan Calmes says, “”Feel It All” is about a crossroad in your life where you are forced to decide between giving up all that you’ve built your life upon or fighting to keep it all alive even if just for another day. The human condition forces us all to endure these hardships and the human spirit shows itself most vibrantly when we choose to fight for the things we love and for their existence.”
2018 stands out as possibly the most transformative year for Milwaukee based Vinyl Theatre’s career. This year will bring new music, new touring, a new producer collaboration, new release partners, and a newly reimagined sound and style.
Vinyl Theatre ended 2017 with a specific goal to grow creatively and try new things. Coming off of their last album with Fueled By Ramen, they decided it was time to be open to more creative possibilities than they previously would have thought fit with their vision. Creatively revitalized and feeling free to explore and create music that is boundless, they wrote songs that may be a longer extension from their previous sound than many artists are willing to take. The first release of 2018, “Feel It All,” will include a larger incorporation of programming and synthetic sounds. While still fully “Vinyl Theatre,” it is an exciting, aggressive, anthem that pushes outside of the traditional ‘bass, guitar, and drums’ alternative band.
Following a busy touring schedule supporting the likes of Twenty One Pilots, Misterwives, Dashboard Confessional, Panic! At The Disco, The Mowgli’s and many others, Vinyl Theatre is planning a packed year of more touring, bringing a new energy to their already action-packed shows. Fans should expect bigger, better, more in-depth, and a more interactive Vinyl Theatre live experience throughout 2018.
