Veteran Seattle, WA pop punk rock outfit Amber Pacific is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, and what better way to commemorate the occasion than with the return of original vocalist Matt Young, and the release of the band's 4th studio album, The Turn on September 2nd.
The Turn (the band's first new release since 2011's Virtues) features guest appearances from a few of the band's friends and past tour mates, including Mike Herrera (MxPx), and Alex Gaskarth (All Time Low). The album will be available in Standard and Deluxe editions (which includes three bonus acoustic tracks and one alternate track). See track listing below.
Founding guitarist Will Nutter proudly calls The Turn, "the best AP record we've made to date."
Amber Pacific first came to national attention in 2004 with the release of their Fading Days EP, an urgent, slick punk‐pop record in the vein of Story of the Year, the Audition, and the All-American Rejects.The band went on to release three more well-received LP's, and to tour with the Vans Warped Tour from 2004-2007, as well as with the likes of Sum-41, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Hawthorne Heights, Runner Runner and Cartel.
With the original line up restored, Amber Pacific is excited to bring this newest batch of tunes to their fans.
