The Choir To Release 'The Loudest Sound Ever Heard' Feat Leigh Nash

May 07 2012

Iconic alternative rock band The Choir will release their 14th studio album 'The Loudest Sound Ever Heard' on 15th May 2012. The album features a duet with Leigh Nash of Sixpence None the Richer on final song 'After All'.

As one of the few bands left standing from the 1980's SoCal music movement wave that swept nationwide more than 30 years ago, The Choir continues to make their renowned atmospheric music married to lyrics stirred by life's inspirational lessons in the context of real relationships - love, despair, light, dark, hope, and recovery.

Comprised of original members Derri Daugherty (lead vocal/guitar), Steve Hindalong (drums), Dan Michaels (saxophone/lyricon), and Tim Chandler (bass), The Choir thrived in the creation of 'The Loudest Sound Ever Heard'.

Says Daugherty, "At this point in our life as a band, we know each other really well and sincerely appreciate what we each bring to the creative process. So every time we get an itch to make another record it's fun and new. It's like we've got the excitement we had when we were younger, wanting to make great music, as well as the confidence that comes with experience."

The project's title of 'The Loudest Sound Ever Heard' is taken from the infamous volcanic explosion on the Indonesian island of Krakatoa in the late 19th century. "A quick Wikipedia search revealed that to this day the event is considered to be 'the loudest sound ever heard'," Drummer/lyricist Hindalong explains. "I referred to that tragic occurrence in the first verse of the song 'I'm Learning to Fly,' which is thematically central to the album. It's about living each day like it truly matters. 'Living to love in a dying world.' Such catastrophic events remind us of our vulnerability, and how we ought to celebrate every breath."
