Indie pop-rock duo People On Vacation are back with their brilliant new album The Chronicles Of Tim Powers. The two Texans funded the release through a hugely successful PledgeMusic crowdfunding campaign and as a testament to their commitment to fan interaction, they even named the album after one lucky pledger!
If you’ve not heard of People On Vacation before, it is the successful musical union of Jaret Reddick (Bowling For Soup) and Ryan Hamilton (Smile Smile). In fact, People on Vay-kay opened for Bowling For Soup’s acoustic tour a couple of years ago. Which essentially means that these two guys have known each other for some time and aren’t afraid to put the hours in. No shirkers when it comes to hard work! They were also through more recently opening for Patent Pending.
Released on the
27th of October 8th of December 2nd of February 2015 (changed to coincide with UK tour) in the UK through Brando Records, the eleven songs on The Chronicles Of Tim Powers are the end result of months of hard work by Ryan and Jaret.
From the highly entertaining “Don’t Ask The Question” through the reflective “We Shoulda Made It” to the emotional “The Girl I Used To Love” and the heartbreaking album closer “Journey To The End”, The Chronicles Of Tim Powers is packed full of songs for every mood, all the while delivered in People On Vacation’s unique uplifting style.
- Don’t Ask The Question
- I’ve Got Your Back
- You May Not Believe In God
- All I Ever Really Wanted
- We Shoulda Made It
- We All Want What We Can’t Have
- She’s Not You
- I Might Change My Mind
- The Girl I Used To Love
- Punk Rock World
- Journey To The End
Enjoy the lyric video for “Punk Rock World” below. The first actual single/video from the album will be “You May Not Believe In God” and will be around soon. I’ll get it on facebook/twitter/g+ as soon as I have a link.
