Quiet Company Debuts New Video and Readies New Album for October 4 Release

Austin-based Quiet Company have announced the release of their new full length record “We Are Where We All Belong” due out on October 4 with the 14-track album’s first single being released in early August. The band has released a preview of the new album with their first video for the track “Fear & Fallacy, Sitting in a Tree,” which features the band in their native Austin, Texas performing in various locales including several pianos that were placed all around the city for the art installation project Play Me I’m Yours.

 

 Last year Quiet Company made a lot of noise with their EP “Songs For Staying In,” deemed a “27 minute celebration of love…and sex.” The album’s lead single, “How Do You Do It” landed simultaneous rotations across the different formats of Austin radio stations: KGSR, KROX, KUT, KOOP and KVRX. The success brought them many opportunities including a live taping in the famous Austin City Limits studio 6a for their Satellite Sets series and a walk-on role playing themselves on ABC’s now defunct reality-drama series My Generation.

 

 “We Are All Where We Belong” musically, is Quiet Company’s return to form, featuring their beloved pop hooks, grinding guitars and encompassing vocal harmonies; yet the album is the antithesis of “Songs For Staying In” lyrically. The new full-length chronicles the many different emotions that a person goes through in a break up: sadness, resentment, self-doubt, but ultimately hope and the indescribable joy and freedom that comes from the realization of making the right decision. “It is easily the most personal thing I've ever written,” said lead singer Taylor Muse. “It is, essentially, a break up record, only the romance that's ending was between myself and religion.”

 

Recently, Quiet Company announced their unique involvement with Grooveshark and Rocket Science on the release of their new record. The partnership leverages the strengths of both companies to champion forward thinking artists. “We aim to provide a road map that artists can follow to achieve success in today’s challenging marketplace” says Kevin Day, owner of Rocket Science. “This is a realistic strategy that delivers measurable results for developing artists and enables them to build a lasting career”.

 

Well in advance of their recent successes, Quiet Company has created catchy and memorable pop-rock gems as the original solo creation of Taylor Muse, later joined by guitarist Tommy Blank, bassist Matt Parmenter, drummer Jeff Weathers and trombone player Cody Ackors. The band has released 2 full length LP’s, 1 EP and a live DVD.

 

Quiet Company, led by Taylor Glen Muse, is one man’s vision brought to life with a little help from his friends. Hailing from Austin, Texas, Taylor Muse already has years of experience under his young belt, having fronted and played in many bands, including an early version of Eisley. After the break-up of his last band, The Connotations, Taylor hoped to complete an album of collected contributions from his extensive cast of musician friends. Instead, he played nearly everything himself, and ended up with a very personal and visionary endeavor entitled “Shine Honesty”. By the end of it all, you may be uncomfortably aware of exactly who he loves, who he hates, and how he feels about them all.

After the release of their critically acclaimed first record, “Shine Honesty,” Austin’s Quiet Company took to the road for over 200 shows all across the U.S. The video for “Fashionabel,” by Emmy nominated director Cameron McCasland, won several film festival awards and was added to rotation by MTV.CA. During that time songwriter Taylor Muse began recording demos that would later become “Everyone You Love Will Be Happy Soon”.

In March 2009, almost three years in the making, Quiet Company released “Everyone You Love Will Be Happy Soon”. Lyrically, the record is full of songs that will make you fall in love with life and then just as quickly, challenge everything you know about it. Quiet Company tells tales of love, death, and frustration with the world we’re forced to live in. Though always uplifting, the songs range form the raucously energetic to the beautifully intimate and never go without melodies that are immediately haunting and infectious
