The Scoop: Rock outfit Framing Hanley has officially signed with Imagen Records to release their highly anticipated third full length album The Sum of Who We Are sometime this coming spring. You can check out an official statement from vocalist Kenneth Nixon below.
“We are very excited about the future now that we are onboard with Imagen Records. After leaving our previous label, we made a decision to go about this next album as an unsigned artist; however, after talking with Bob and Morgan about Imagen’s vision and seeing/learning more about the team they have assembled and the vision they have for Framing Hanley, it was really a no-brainer. We expect big things with our new album and having Imagen steering the ship only gives us more confidence.”
The Spin: The las time most of us saw Framing Hanely, they were dominating the airwaves with their infectious rendition of Lil Wayne’s “Lollipop.” That was back in 2007 – so where have they been the past seven years? Well, they released their sophomore full length A Promise To Burn in 2010 and while it served them a higher slot on the Billboard 200 (57), it didn’t provide near as much lasting value as their debut effort did. So now, after taking a few years to regroup, the band is back with a new record and a new outlook. Be sure to stay tuned to MEB as we will be bringing you the latest details on the forthcoming album as soon as we receive word.
