The dB's: First Album in 30 Years with Original Lineup


The dB's
Falling Off the Sky is the first new dB's album in a quarter-century. It's also the first in three decades to feature the band's original lineup of singer/songwriter/guitarists Peter Holsapple and Chris Stamey, bassist Gene Holder and drummer Will Rigby - the same lineup that recorded the beloved early-'80s classics Stands for deciBels and Repercussion. Street date is set for June 12, 2012 on Bar/None Records.

The foursome's vintage releases are now widely revered as alt-pop landmarks. Falling Off the Sky embodies the same combination of infectious melodic craft, playful sonic experimentalism and barbed lyrical insight that originally established the dB's as key progenitors of the '80s Southern indie-rock explosion.

The new album - produced by the band, with additional production by longtime cohorts Mitch Easter and Scott Litt - finds the seminal quartet re-energized and inspired, delivering a dozen new original songs that rank with the group's finest and most influential music.

"Our main concern was just to make a really great dB's record, one that would stand up beside our best work," Holsapple asserts. "Obviously the songs had to be good and had to fit together, and it had to sound interesting in a way that would bear repeated listening. But mainly, it was important to us that we make a record that sounds like us."
