“I’ll Take Water Sports For 300, Alex” is the first single from When All We Love is Lost’s upcoming album, Merely a Formality. The album be be available digitally May 12 and on CD June 2, and this first single “encompasses a lot of the energy and technicality that the record holds.”

The debut record was written by Dan Colasanto over the course of two years. The first year was spent writing the lyrics with each song focusing on a certain event or series of moments that happened over the 12-month period. The lyrics were written one song a month for 12 months to bring together the 12 tracks of the final album.

While the second year was spent focusing on the instrumental aspects and bringing everything together in a cohesive manner. A lot of lyrical and musical themes were used on this record to tie it to previous releases by When All We Love is Lost.
