The dB's New Album - Falling Off the Sky
Falling Off the Sky, released June 12, 2012, is The dB's first record since Repercussion with all four original members: Peter Holsapple, Chris Stamey, Gene Holder, and Will Rigby.
The buzz around Falling Off the Sky has been great. Here are a couple of reviews from a newsletter I received recently:
With Falling Off the Sky,the first album from the original lineup in 30 years, due out June 12, the group stacked the first of its six SXSW performances with a preview of new material such as "That Time is Gone," "Before We Were Born" and "I Didn't Mean to Say That," all showing that the dB's ace pop melodicism and harmonic sensibility hasn't been affected by the break. And the older favorites — including "Happenstance" and "Neverland" — sounded as fresh as they did during the 80s. It was the return of an old friend whose sound hasn't aged a bit.
— M. Tye Comer, David Greenwald & Gary Graff, Billboard
The forthcoming Falling Off the Sky finds the reunited dBs sounding as compelling as ever, with the same easy rapport and deft songcraft that characterized the band's earlier output.
