Gwen Stacy will premiere a new track (The First Words) from their forthcoming album A Dialogue on their myspace page this Friday.  The album will be released on October 20th on new home Solid State Records (Underoath, Norma Jean).  Speaking on the record which was produced by Andreas Magnusson (Haste The Day, Black Dahlia Murder), drummer TJ Sego said “This record is a lot more of everything we were doing before but at the time, we didn’t have the time, knowledge, experience, or tools to accomplish this record.  We studied a lot of musical theory and every song on the album has some form of musical theory in it.  We didn’t just sit at a guitar and bang out some riffs, everything has purpose.  This is the album we always wanted to do.  This time around to us, we did it right.”

The band’s previous album The Life I Know (2008) was released on Ferret Music and debuted on the Billboard “Heatseekers” Chart.  The album was hailed by media touchstones like Absolute punk.net who claimed “if you need something to kick your current music rotation in the (bleep), then The Life I Know is what you want to check out.”

The band has toured nationally numerous times including stints with The Devil Wears Prada, Unearth, Scary Kids Scaring Kids, Drop Dead, Gorgeous, Poison The Well, Maylene And The Sons Of Disaster, 36 Crazy Fists and Haste The Day. A national headlining tour around the album release will be announced shortly.  www.myspace.com/gwenstacy

Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."
