PRESS RELEASE

Athenian instrumental rockers we.own.the.sky return with their long-awaited 2nd full-length album, “Home”. Over a year in the making and recorded in a largely DIY fashion, “Home” is a labor of love and camaraderie; the quintet self-produced the record, with their very own Dimitris Radis handling engineering and mixing duties, while mastering was done by long-time collaborator and friend Alex Ketenjian (Planet of Zeus, Vodka Juniors etc.).

Albeit primarily instrumental in nature, there is an underlying theme that runs through the album, tying all the songs together, as is boldly suggested by the title. In the troubling times we live in, “Home” stands for the things we hold dear to our heart, that we consider a safe haven.

Whether it be another human being, an actual place or even an object of personal significance, we are in a perpetual chase of that constant, that feeling of familiarity and warmth. Through each individual’s pursuit of happiness, it is the ties we make with each other that shape us, some of which are like threads that cannot be broken.

“Home” is an effort to channel into this human need, symbolizing the journey from darkness towards the light. With that in mind the band crafted what is, in their own words, their most ambitious and diverse album to date.

The nine songs that comprise the record cover enormous ground between genres and atmospheres. From the uplifting spirit of lead-single “We Align” to the pummeling riffs of “Heavy Heart” and from the nostalgia-filled centerpiece “Youth” to the haunting ending of album closer “Akai Ito”, we.own.the.sky are showcasing here their multi-faceted character, defying labels and introducing brand-new elements in their music.

Heavy guitar riffs, electronic beats, ethereal ambient passages, lush delay soundscapes, piano, orchestra and choir vocals all blend in seamlessly in a genre-bending album that is meant to be experienced as a whole, an entity of its own.

“Home” will be available 1/11 in both CD and digital formats.
