Former Belle EP 'Foreign Bed' Out Today, Tour Kicks Off Next Week

With uninhibited folk tones tinged by another time, Former Belle returns to bring fresh takes on the folk tradition inspired by artists both old and new with the release of their debut EP Foreign Bed. Led by singer-songwriter and CRUISR guitarist Bruno Catrambone, and calling to mind the melancholy of Elliott Smith and Bright Eyes, the 6-track EP is out TODAY via Randm Records.

Akin to the changing season, Foreign Bed ebbs and flows from moments of acoustic stillness to triumphant synth lines. Inspired by personal life changes as well as the desire to figure out what it all means, Catrambone composed the EP in segments in his time off from CRUISR shows. "I Was Waiting For You" brings Catrambone's guitar prowess to light as he captures the listener with his acoustic guitar and raw vocals. Meanwhile, the simple piano cadence and classic folk strum of "Honey Bee" follows questions asked in vain.

Since its start in the winter of 2010, Former Belle has taken on many different outfits, all led by front man, Bruno Catrambone. The project self-released a full band EP entitledSounds From The Ground. Former Belle backed their first release with multiple regional tours as well as a five-week European tour. This began to shape the project into its new-found home of both full band and solo performances. After a year-long break while Catrambone pursued his other project, CRUISR, Bruno's downtime between tours, as well as writing on the road, led him to collect new songs combined with revisiting older material to bring his latest EP Foreign Bed to life.
