For the members of Throwing Gravity, 2011 has proved to be an extremely important year for the band.  One which saw the band dissolve their contract with their label, contemplate breaking up, and very soon, finally self release their debut album.

“[I told the band] either we’re done, or we’re going to write a new record,” lead singer Nick James explained to Alternative Addiction about the crossroad that the band reached earlier this year after their record deal dissolved.  “I felt writing a new record was going to people really excited, and I feel like we’ve got a way better record than we were going to have before.”

In order to pen some songs for a new album and breath life back into the band, James and producer Jon King went on a four day “writing trip” last spring to isolate themselves and focus on creating new music.

“I recommend doing that to everyone because it absolutely saved us,” explained James.  “It got us away from those older style songs, although some of them are still on there like “Missing You” and “What She Wants.”  There was no cars passing by, no one around, up in this cabin in North Carolina.  It was just pretty much song writing and drinking the whole time.”

The result of the trip was three new songs: “Best Time,” “Given Up,” and “The Inside” all of which James said that he and King were very excited about.

“We went a little heavier on this album with a split between Active Rock and Hot AC,” said James of the sound.  “It was fun to have the album kind of broke up, with the two contrasting styles.  When we were recording we would track one style song and then switch to the other style, so we didn’t do the same thing over and over again.”

In addition to the new tracks, the band has retooled their hit single “Bring Me Down,” and renamed it “Here We Go Again.”  The track is available on iTunes now, with plans to shoot a video for the album next week.

The brand new album from the band is due out December 6th.
