Today AltPress debuts Northern Faces’ new track, “Alone and Forgotten” from their upcoming self-titled debut full length album, out April 21st through Equal Vision Records. The third track to be released from the album, “Alone and Forgotten” features sustained washed-out treble-filled guitar hooks with catchy, mantra-like choruses of exposed self-confidence; “I don’t ever want to be, all alone and forgotten,” sings co-vocalist Marco Testa, accentuated by signature searing guitar work from Bryan Shortell.

“Alone and Forgotten” accompanies fellow album tracks “Cops Come,” released last month, and “Wait, Wait, Wait” released late last year. Northern Faces will be the follow-up to their impressive debut EP Southern Places, which was released in March 2013. The Northern Faces LP can be preordered on iTunes now with an immediate download of “Cops Come” and “Wait, Wait, Wait” [here].


For a more intimate experience, Northern Faces visited the Audiotree studio in Chicago to film a session of select live tracks from their upcoming album.
