Angel Siren debuts new release this weekend

BEAUMONT — Months of hard work and waiting are finally coming to an end as local rockers Angel Siren release their new album this weekend.

Southeast Texas rock band Angel Siren is celebrating the release of its full-length CD, "Revenge of a Poet," with a release party and concert this Friday night at The Gig in downtown Beaumont with special guests Uptown, Gabriel's Last Breath and All Things Undone. Admission is $7 for ages 21 and older and $10 for ages 18 to 20.

The band, comprised of Brandon Parker, vocals; P.J. Disharoon, guitar; Kaston Seymour, bass; and Jacob Robles, drums, has been working on the new album for months upon months, but it's a wait it feels the fans will appreciate.

"We've spent almost three years working on this album and getting it just right," Robles said in a telephone interview. "We had a deadline for completing the record much sooner than we did, but life, in general comes first. We all have jobs and families and that's our priority. A real issue was funding the record, but it's something we didn't want to rush to complete just to make a deadline."

The disc features nine tracks, several of which were written and recorded nearly two years ago. The remainder were written and recorded over the past year, two of which have never been performed live.

"We've performed most of the songs live, at some point, except for "I'd Rather Sleep" and 'Sixth Street and Avenue,'" Robles added. "We'll be performing every song from the CD at this show, and we're really excited for people to hear it.

"This record is intense and it's a lot heavier sounding than our EP we released a while back," he continued. "If people like our live shows, then they will like this CD."

Robles said and his bandmates have spent many months perfecting their live show and have made a conscious effort to make this album "translate" from the studio to the stage.

"We were able to translate everything from this CD to our live show," he explained. "It's something we learned by watching a band like Forever Falls, who had these amazing live shows which sounded just like the album. That's what we want and we think we've got it."

The band's new CD will be available for $10 at Friday's concert at The Gig, as well as Saturday's show at On The Rocks in Lake Charles, La., and Sunday in Clear Lake, Texas. It will also drop at iTunes on Friday and can be found at the band's website, www.angelsiren.com.

Although it toom Angel Siren many months to prepare this album and make it available to the public, Robles was adamant that such a situation will not happen to the band again.

"We are going to put every penny we make from the sale of this CD back into the band," Robles stated. "We want the band to be able to finance itself and the first step is to use the money from the CD release. Our goal is to try and have another record out by the end of this year, but we will have to take it one day at a time. This Friday's CD release party is the first step in that process, and we're really excited about it."
