Sights & Sounds Announce New Album No Virtue
Sights & Sounds (the alt.rock project from Comeback Kid’s Andrew Neufeld) are releasing their second album No Virtue on October 11.
“No Virtue is an album we had been working on for quite some time. It’s been a labour of love building these songs over the years,” says Andrew. “Bringing ideas hummed in a phone or scratched on a guitar to life in a more involved way than we have ever been able to do before. Adding instrumentation and electronic elements into the fold. Panning candy into soundscapes was our goal. We conjured up some of our favourite influences old and modern and printed our take on modern rock with an electronic twist.
“This is the hardest record I have ever had to make but so gratifying to have finished and finally able to share it with the world. Even though this is our follow-up to our first LP Monolith and our EP Silver Door, I feel like this is a new beginning and a fresh start for Sights & Sounds. Self-releasing the project with a new approach to the music and to the model of how we release our music.”
The album announcement is marked with the release of the title track.
“ ‘No Virtue, restores you’, the first line of the song is in reference to one trying to make up for their mistakes, trying to find redemption. When it comes down to it, our past will always be remembered but our only focus should be directed by the present and the future. Like it or not, sometimes the dust never settles. We channelled the Gallagher brothers vocally and tried to implore a bit of a Hackers/cyberpunk vibe in the instrumentation, alongside a Prodigy-style drum beat on this track.”
