PREMIERE FIRST TRACK IN SEVEN YEARS AT ALTERNATIVE PRESS

SUBLIME CURRENCY OUT AUGUST 28, 2012 ON TOOTH & NAIL

Abandoned Pools release their long-awaited third album, Sublime Currency on August 28, 2012 via Tooth & Nail Records and today Alternative Press is hosting an EXCLUSIVE PREMIERE STREAM of the title track.

Sublime Currency is the culmination of the eleven-year journey of Tommy Walter, bassist and co-founder of the critically acclaimed band eels. Sublime Currency is the follow up to Abandoned Pools’ 2005 release Armed to the Teeth, a disc that revealed a songwriter grappling with confusion and darkness.  Now, Tommy has answered his own questions, finding solace in his faith and recent marriage.

Abandoned Pools will play a rare club appearance for their CD release when they headline The Roxy in Hollywood on September 15.
Sublime Currency is a unified, cohesive vision from a single focused musician.  Tommy played all the instruments on the album, with the exception of the drums.
“I went back to my core of writing on my own and recording on my own because it keeps the project focused,” he explains. “I had a lot of range on the first album and I wanted to keep that going here, this range of styles. The songs come from a long span of time, but I feel like they’re all appropriate to now.”

Payable on Death – P.O.D.

A Voice of Life

Almost 27 years after the band's first studio album, P.O.D.'s message is arguably more important than ever. "I believe (our message) is even more relevant now than it was then. If you really listen to 'Youth of the Nation,' we still have these tragedies going on. There’s a lot of searching still going on out there."
