On August 4th, sosaveme announced the October 4th release of The Garden. Since then, fans and critics alike have actively awaited the release. The band will release the first single TOMORROW (Tuesday, September 20th), in addition to a full production music video for the song later this week. “Gentle Slope” will be available on iTunes and the video can be viewed on YouTube and embedded onto media sites.

The 10-track album showcases their raw and passionate performance style while maintaining crisp, solid production elements. “What we really want to capture is a lot of emotion and energy from our live show,” says vocalist Nicholas Pidek. It was this determination that caught producer/engineer Tyler Orr’s attention. First Street Studios (As Cities Burn, Hawkboy, The Chariot) contacted the band about recording their next album in the homely Chattanooga, TN studio.

After months of creative work, the record is ready and waiting to be put in your hands. Fans can see and hear a glimpse of the project tomorrow when the single releases at midnight. The corresponding video will go live on YouTube Saturday night, September 24th at 9pm EST. Pidek says: “’We are proud to unveil our first full production music video of our single “Gentle Slope.” Instead of boring you with our ugly mugs playing instruments we decided to make this music video all about the story line. We hope you enjoy watching it over and over to see the hidden elements we placed through it.”

Everyone who promotes the video by linking @sosaveme on Facebook or Twitter will be entered to win a prize pack including release show tickets, t-shirt, CD, poster and HD download. Five winners will be chosen at random. The link will be located on youtube.com/sosavemetheband.
