Framing Hanley, the Nashville, TN rock band that burst onto the alternative rock scene last year behind The Moment – selling over 800,000 tracks, 110,000 albums and playing over 300 shows – is back in a big way for 2010. The band is set to release their sophomore album, A Promise To Burn, May 25th via Silent Majority Group/ILG. The double disc package includes a 30 minute DVD, featuring exclusive behind the scenes footage and interviews, shot in HD, during the recording process of A Promise To Burn. The album was produced at Soundmine Studios in Stroudsburg, PA with Brett Hestla, Greg Archilla and Dan Malsch.
“We wrote a record that we felt could withstand our own critique throughout the rest of our careers” says Framing Hanley front-man Kenneth Nixon. “It’s a record that we’re proud of and feel a lot of people can relate to.”
You can preview a clip from the first single “You Stupid Girl” on Framing Hanley’s MySpace page.
