Smile Empty Soul – All In My Head: The mid-tempo, dirgy hard rock style of Smile Empty Soul is one of the most unique sounds in the hard rock world. Since the release of their self-titled debut in 2003 the band has put out release after release of hard-hitting, ever-evolving tunes that push their own limits, always with maximum reward. Countless days on the road have also turned the band into one of the most finely tuned musical machines both on record and on stage.
After years of being held up in the proverbial red tape of the music industry, the band has finally been able to give the fans what they want in the way of their new EP, Shapeshifter (out 4/1 on Pavement Entertainment). In an effort to reward their fans’ patience and change things up a bit, they’ve reached back into their past, re-recording 3 of their biggest singles from their debut (“Bottom of a Bottle,” “Nowhere Kids,” and “Silhouettes”), giving a new spin to these favorites. Of course, there is new music on there as well (along with a DVD stuffed full of behind-the-scenes content) perhaps the most memorable being the new single for “All In My Head.”
