WRAY Makes Self-Titled Debut Today; Album Steaming on BlackBook
Wray is David Brown, Blake Wimberly, and David Swatzell. Though the band is new to the scene, the members' involvement in the music community starts over a decade ago. The trio has been involved with bands Last Flight In, Comrade, Nightmare Waterfall, and a handful of other projects you might not have had the chance to see if "punk rock" just isn't your scene. But this project is something you don't want to miss.
Wray's self-titled debut is released today, July 15th, via Communicating Vessels. It was recorded in their hometown of Birmingham, Alabama at Ol Elgante Studio. With mastermind engineer Daniel Farris (Man Or Astro-man?, St. Vincent, Polyphonic Spree, Verbena) at the helm, they managed to capture the atmospheric beauty that comes with every live show they play.
The album is streaming on BlackBook, which called the debut effort "ambitious."
This summer and fall, Wray will be touring the United States with surf rock legends Man or Astro-Man?
