Anthony Green announced that he will contribute vocals to a track on Balance and Composure’s upcoming album, The Things We Think We’re Missing, on Monday via Instagram.
Here’s what Green had to say about the recording:
“So excited about the new @balanceandcomposure record. I had the honor of singing on a track and I can honestly say its one of the best songs they ever wrote. Go check it out at http://balanceandcomposure.com and tell them how much they rule and tell them I sent ya.”
Green is a founding member and lead singer for the immensely successful alternative group, Circa Survive, and has performed with other notable bands like Saosin, Say Anything, and Good Old War. The prolific artist has released two full-length solo albums and his third effort, Young Legs, will be out sometime this fall.
That said, Green’s announcement bears testament to Balance and Composure’s steady increase in popularity among indie/alternative fans.
Formed in Doylestown, Pa. in 2007, the budding quintet has produced a considerable amount of recorded material including a 2009 split with fellow Pennsylvania indie rockers, Tigers Jaw and their successful debut album, Separation, released in 2011. They specialize in heavier indie rock, driven by dark lyrics and melodic guitar riffs.
Here’s the official music video for ‘Quake’, a popular track off Separation:
Amidst the hype surrounding the release of their sophomore effort, Balance and Composure have released a complete track listing for the record and added an instrumental sample from the album to their website. They have not released any promo singles.
In June, the band announced a fall tour alongside co-headliners Title Fight, (another punk/indie group from eastern Pennsylvania), with openers Cruel Hand and Slingshot Dakota. The tour will be stopping at Union Transfer in Philadelphia on October 12 and 89 North in Patchogue, New York on October 13.
Watch Title Fight’s 2012 performance at Philadelphia’s First Unitarian Church here.
