Decades Announce Debut Album
Christchurch rock band Decades are proud to announce the release of their debut album THE TRUTH AND OTHER PEOPLE, out via Warner Music NZ on July 14th. The album includes their previously released singles ‘Terrified’, ‘If It Kills Me’ and ‘I Was With Him’ along with their brand new single ‘Get Me Home’.
THE TRUTH AND OTHER PEOPLE came together in Studios in the City, Melbourne, with local rock wizard and producer Tom Larkin (Shihad, Villainy). The album forms an – at times – controversial story which follows the relationship tribulations and love triangle of front-woman Emma Cameron. Leading the story with the band’s first single,‘Terrified’ – which details the night she made the decision to change her life – THE TRUTH AND OTHER PEOPLE rolls out in a track-by-track timeline of the emotions and events that it spurned.
“Often a taboo subject; but one I feel a lot of people my age experience when going through that development stage from late teenager in to adulthood, this album describes a period of time where you really start to figure out your own life path, values, passions, and seek to surround yourself with people who share these with you,” says Emma. “It’s a hard story to tell; growing up, growing apart, the effects other people can have on each other, and finding the strength to tell the truth to people, but more importantly; to yourself.”
Following the release of the album Decades will hit the road with Skinny Hobos, Dead Favours and Bakers Eddy, playing in five centres across the country. The newest generation of local rockers will kick off the ALL OUR TRUTHS tour in Hamilton on July 14, before heading to Auckland on July 15, Wellington on July 22, Christchurch on July 28, and Dunedin on July 29.
Tickets go on sale Thursday June 1 at 12pm from www.wearedecades.com
