Equal Vision Records will release Cinematics, the debut, full-length album from Set It Off on September 18th.
The Tampa, FL-based quintet, comprised of Cody Carson [vocals], Dan Clermont [guitar], Zach DeWall [guitar], Austin Kerr [bass], and Maxx Danziger [drums], recorded the 12-track album over the course of four weeks with Zack Odom and Kenneth Mount [All Time Low, Cartel, Mayday Parade] at Vintage Song Studios in Alpharetta, GA.
Set It Off recently debuted “I’ll Sleep When I’m Dead” - a brand new song off of Cinematics, in the form of a lyric video that is now available on Youtube HERE.
Cinematics features Set It Off’s signature sound of orchestra-infused pop with a new sense of heaviness, diversity and intensity in the album, both lyrically and musically. "With the new album, you're getting to jump inside my head and think how I think, feel what I feel, and really understand how human we all are.” Carson confesses. “We are human - we have good times, we have bad times, we think pure thoughts, and we think impure thoughts. As far as how I describe these situations, I want you to feel like you are sitting down for a short film…and if I'm not evoking any sort of emotion from you then I'm not doing my job.”
“And musically I feel like we are the strongest we've ever been. All the touring we've done in the past year has made us night and day tighter for our live performances and working and meeting other musicians on that next level has forced us to push our skills musically in all aspects from playing to writing,” adds Clermont.
“We are very proud of our last release, Horrible Kids EP, but this album is just on a different level, and we’re very, very excited about it,” concludes Danziger. “This is a new era of Set It Off, and we’re ready for it.”
Set If Off is currently on tour with Hawthorne Heights and will next hit the road with Red Jumpsuit Apparatus. A new fall tour announcement for Set It Off will be made soon as well. All announced, upcoming tour dates can be seen below – as well as the tracklisting for Cinematics.
