Eisley will release Deep Space, a new five-track EP, on February 14th, 2012. Deep Space was recorded Eisley's hometown of Tyler, TX with engineer/mixer Andy Freeman.
In support of the new EP, Eisley will venture out on a US tour in March 2012 supported by Christie DuPree and Tampa, FL-based band Marksmen.
Singer/songwriter/guitarist Sherri DuPree-Bemis shares that the EP’s title track was inspired by the work of science fiction/fantasy author Ray Bradbury. “He is one of my favorite writers of all time and consistently inspires me." She continues, "Outer space has always fascinated me and I wrote this about a couple leaving earth to live life in space, knowing they may never see earth again. I wanted it to build it musically so that you're very focused on the story and by the time it gets to the bridge, it literally feels like you're right there with them, feeling that mixture of excitement and sadness as you soar out of the atmosphere.”
The surreal trance of Deep Space follows The Valley, Eisley’s incredibly candid and autobiographical full-length album, which was released in March 2011. The Valley debuted at No. 75 on the Billboard 200 Current Albums chart, No. 5 on Amazon MP3's Top 10 Album Chart, and No. 3 on its New Albums chart. The Valley has also been deemed "one of the best albums of 2011" by Amazon.com, Big Takeover, Alternative Press, and AbsolutePunk.net.
Eisley teamed up with Paste Magazine last week to premiere their steampunk inspired music video for “The Valley”. The video was directed and animated by Cory Sheldon and can be seen HERE.
Today Eisley also released a collection of Christmas songs that they've recorded over the years, for free download on Facebook. All upcoming Deep Space Tour dates and the tracklisting for the EP can be found below.
